  1. Tengo activado la autenticación de dos pasos en Linkedin (contraseña y mensaje de texto) y hace un par de semanas me llegó un mensaje con el código de ingreso sin haber intentado logearme, ya entiendo como obtuvieron mi contraseña… Afortunadamente la usaba únicamente para Linkedin. Un saludo!!
