2) Push Chrome notification. Click Download button to open this update tutorial.

Step 1. Remove the old version

Click on the three dots in the top right corner of your Chrome → find More Tools subsection → open Extensions menu.

Click Remove under LI Prospect Finder record and make sure that Developer mode is turned on.

Step 2. Download LI Prospect Finder (ver.: 1.2.30 from 29.06.2022).

Click on the archive link to save it to your computer. It will be saved to a default Downloads location.

Step 3. Unpack the archive.

To unpack the extension:

  • On PC: right-click the li-prospect-finder.zip file →Extract All→select a file destination →Extract.
