How to update Email Finder for Chrome manually (from a zip)

Email Finder for Chrome is updated regularly to improve performance and ensure stability, so when we release a new version, update your current version to keep your extension up-to-date.

Keep an eye for in-app and Chrome notifications for new updates.

Email Finder can be updated via Chrome webstore, but there is also an alternative method if that isn’t an option.

Updating it manually won’t take much of your time if you already know how to install it manually.

Let’s get into it so you can go back to saving emails with the latest version:

 Remove the old version from Chrome

Go to the Extensions page in your Chrome. You can access it in two ways:

  • type or copy chrome://extensions/ into browser address bar and press Enter.
  • click on the tree dots in the top right of the browser click More tools click Extensions.

Click Remove under Email Finder to delete your current version.

Turn on Developer mode switch in the top right corner.

Download Email Finder zip file (ver.: 2.1.5 from 27.09.2022).

Click on the archive link above to save the zip file to your computer.

Extract the zip file’s contents

Locate the snovio.zip file on your computer.

For quick access from Chrome, click Ctrl+J Show in folder.

Extract zip file to a directory of your choice.

Unzipped extension folder needs to remain in the same directory after installation. Make sure to unzip a file to a convenient file location where it would stay always.

Upload extension folder into Chrome

Go back to the chrome://extensions/ page.

Open your file manager and locate the unzipped extension folder with manifest file.

Select the folder “snovio”.

Drag&drop it anywhere onto the Extensions page to install.

Make sure to select the folder that contains manifest.json file to avoid an installation error.

Pin to the extensions bar

Click the puzzle icon  in the top right corner of your browser.

Pin  Email Finder  to the extensions bar.

Now that your Email Finder is up-to-date, it’s ready to save email addresses and prospects from company websites.
