How to update LI Prospect Finder extension for Chrome (from a zip)

LI Prospect 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.

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

Let’s get into it so you can go back to prospecting with the latest version.

If you find it easier to follow a screen capture rather than reading a guide, here you go:

 Remove the old version from Chrome and your computer

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 LI Prospect Finder to delete your current version. Developer mode stays On.

To avoid mixing up extension folders during reinstallation, find and delete a folder with old version from your computer.

 Download LI Prospect Finder zip file (ver.: 2.1.41 from 16.11.2022)

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

Extract the zip file’s contents

Locate the li-prospect-finder.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.json file.

Select the folder “li-prospect-finder”.

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 LI Prospect Finder  to the extensions bar.

Now that your LI Prospect Finder is up-to-date, it’s ready to continue prospecting on LinkedIn and Sales Navigator.
