How to collect prospects and companies with LI Prospect Finder

While using LI Prospect Finder, you can take advantage of several prospecting techniques.

1) Launch the extension on LinkedIn

Start by logging into your LinkedIn account and activate the extension while browsing through LinkedIn.

To activate LI Prospect Finder, click on its icon located in the extensions bar at the top right corner of your browser.

In the search bar at the top, use the LinkedIn search engine to find a list of prospects. Apply filters and keywords as needed (position, location, or industry). 

To activate the extension, click on the LI Prospect Finder icon located in the top-right corner of the extensions menu.

Once activated, you’ll see a preview list of prospects found on the current LinkedIn page. You have the option to Save them to your list right away, or you can proceed to the next step and Advanced settings.

Select a list to save the prospects to. You have two options: either create a new list or choose an existing list.

Use case #2: Collect prospect profile from a personal page

To get started, use the search field at the top to find the personal page of the person you’re interested in.

Activate the extension.

Finally, click the Save button to add this person to your prospects list and find their email address, along with other details from their profile.

Use case #3: Collect prospects from company page

To start, use the search bar on LinkedIn to find the profile page of the company you’re interested in.

Once you’re on the company page, click on the number that represents the total employees to view a list of prospects currently working for that company.

Activate the extension to save a list of company prospects.

You can also save a company profile to your companies list. When viewing the company profile, activate the extension.

2) Configure Advanced settings (optional)

In this step, you have the option to customize advanced settings for bulk prospecting.

If you don’t modify the search settings, LI Prospect Finder will gather prospects solely from the active page. It is recommended to set a timeout between 7 to 14 seconds.

  • Number of pages

Specify the number of search results pages to process and collect prospects from.

Note: By default, each search results page on Sales Navigator contains 25 prospects.

  • Set a search timeout

The timeout feature determines the waiting time in seconds before saving the next prospect profile. It is randomly selected within a specified range for each profile. Choosing a higher waiting time makes your search appear more human-like.

To protect your LinkedIn (LI) account from being blocked, it’s important to be cautious with the timeout settings and the number of prospects you collect per day. You can learn about safe prospecting with LI Prospect Finder here.

3) Save prospects

To collect prospects according to your search settings and save them to your list, click the Save button.

In the Active searches tab that will be created in your browser, you can monitor the progress of your ongoing LinkedIn searches. If needed, you can also pause or stop a search task.

Important: Please wait until the search task is complete before closing this tab. Once the extension finishes collecting prospects, the status of the search task will change to Completed.

4) Review results

Go to your prospect list and check the newly collected prospects.

When making another search with similar filters, you will be able to see if someone is already on your prospect list.


1. How many emails per day can I find on LinkedIn without being blocked?

Saving prospects using the extension simulates a manual search and counts toward the daily profile view limit. Each prospect saved is considered as a profile view.

To keep your account safe, we recommend staying below the following limits:

≈ 150 prospects per day for a free LinkedIn account
≈ 500 prospects per day for a premium LinkedIn account
≈ 1000 prospects per day for a Sales Navigator search

If you exceed the limits, your account may be temporarily blocked.
