Extract all Email Address From LinkedIn Network

1. Click the “Me” from the upper right-hand corner to open the dropdown menu.

3. Click the “Data Privacy” tab from the left menu.

4. Then, click “How LinkedIn Uses Your Data” under the Data Privacy tab.

5. Click the “Get a copy of your data.”

6. Select the data files you would like to export and “Request Archive.”

7. Your download gets ready in about 10 minutes.

8. Once it’s done, click the “Download it with this link” prompt you will see in your email.

9. Click “Download Archive.”

10. Access your data by opening the CSV file.

It sounds incredibly simple to do this process. But unfortunately, there’s a catch. Once you go to your spreadsheet file, you will notice that one important part of the data is missing: email addresses—what a bummer.

Prior to 2018, LinkedIn allowed users to pull all sorts of information for offline uses. However, as you might guess, to maintain privacy and prevent spam attempts, LinkedIn implemented a setting where users can prefer not to share their info.

That means unless someone goes and changes their privacy settings to let direct or first-degree connections download their email address, you can’t find their emails.

The good thing is there are 3rd-party tools developed to help you extract emails from LinkedIn.
