LinkedIn has added three new tools to yield more control and choice over your account and data. Similar to Gmail, LinkedIn now lets you view all the devices you logged into and gives complete control over those sessions, you can end any session by clicking on Sign out link on the new page they’re offering now.
This sessions page in Setting (or click on ‘See where you are logged in’ in Settings) on LinkedIn lists all the places you’ve signed into and shows the ‘details about each session, sign out of individual sessions, or sign out of everywhere at once’.
