Here's How To Change Your LinkedIn Password After Today's Security Breach

News broke this morning that LinkedIn may have lost about 6.5 million passwords in a security breach.

LinkedIn says it’s looking into the matter. But in the meantime, we suggest you play it safe and change your password.

LinkedIn’s settings can be a bit confusing, so here’s what to do:
