The verification will be carried out by HyperVerge, a third-party company that leverages DigiLocker, a digital wallet for government IDs including Aadhaar.
“Having an ID verification means that the individual’s government-issued ID is verified by one of LinkedIn’s verification partners. This verification is available for those with a valid Aadhaar number and an India phone number, and will be shown on your LinkedIn profile.
LinkedIn said it will not have access to any sensitive data from members’ Aadhaar ID. LinkedIn only receives a user’s name, city (state and country), and year of birth. That information is not visible to others and LinkedIn may use it for security purposes. LinkedIn will also not have access to documents in members’ Digilocker accounts.
