LinkedIn has apparently created an ithing app that fiddles with your email. If you connect it to your email, it will add a signature to whatever you send out. The signature will include stuff about your LinkedIn profile.

If someone sends you an email that uses the same email address they use for LinkedIn, the app will add their job title, photo, and all your shared contacts to their email.

For this to happen, you need to give LinkedIn your email password and all your outgoing and incoming email will be routed through their servers.

I know that the NSA reads everybody's messages and Google stores almost everybody's messages so I suppose it hardly matters. But...ew.

I deleted my account there. I suppose that means I'll never get a job again.
