New Delhi: It is always very hard to bid goodbyes. But, nevertheless, change is the only constant. In a bid to focus on `most relevant` offerings to members, LinkedIn has reportedly wrapped up its Intro mail service.
The Intro service was launched in October last year and helps to integrate LinkedIn contact details right into the iOS Mail app. According to reports, the service failed to strike a chord with users, due to its security concerns.
The LinkedIn Intro service would work until March 7, after which it will be shut off completely.

Users of the service are required to disable Intro, else their e-mail accounts won`t work normally after the shutdown date, the report added.
