Linkedin Automation Might Get You Blocked.
Nowadays many companies offering unique features for automating Linkedin.
But let’s dive in to how Linkedin Automation works.
Automation tools are logging into your LinkedIn and perform actions (clicks).
There are three kinds of automation:
1). Login with Linkedin username and password.
It can be via the web or an application.
* It’s saves you Linkedin username and password. That’s a little scary.
* It’s creating a new login device in your account – and here is the tricky part, most Linkedin Automations tools login from from a Linux operating system, that’s a big no-no.
* They can relog themselves to Linkedin in case of a disconnection – without you needing to do anything.
2). Local automation, using a chrome extension – You are the person who performs the automation.
* Automation happens in your browser; you can’t touch it while it happens.
* Robot click – In local automation, you can’t simulate human clicks in code – Linkedin claims they can detect it.
* Elements change in page – Most chrome extensions will change your page elements – Linkedin claims they can detect it.
* All the operations are being made by you, that’s a significant benefit.
3). Chrome extensions use your Linkedin cookies – Recommended.
* You need to check the permissions of the chrome extension at the google webstore.
Many companies ask for extra permissions they don’t need.
Make sure it can only access your Linkedin, company dashboard, and cookies.
* No access to your Linkedin Username and Password.
* Not creating a new logged-in device.
* Once you delete the extension, the extensions’ owner won’t have access to your account.
In case you have chosen to use a background automated tool, there is one thing you must address.
The location of where your actions are being performed.
Most companies will hide this information from you, but this is crucial.
The worst scenario is that the Linkedin Automation tool will make actions from the computer it’s running on. That’s a big no-no.
It’s straightforward. Your account will look something like that:
As you can see, the browser is “Linux” and the Owner is “Digitalocean Llc” which is telling Linkedin, Hello, I am a bot.
To better protect you, the Linkedin automation company should require you to use a proxy. They might be able to provide it.
What is a proxy?
A proxy is a computer that sits in a different location and will make all your Linkedin actions.
There are two types of proxies:
1. Shared proxies – Multiple users using the same computer.
2. Dedicated proxies – Only one user can use the computer.
Using a shared one is dangerous – Linkedin can detect that multiple users are using the same computer.
Shared ones are much cheaper, and many companies are using them – Check with your company.
Dedicated ones are expensive – You will be the only one using this computer.
Every proxy sits in a different location – the closer it is to you, the safer.
If I live in Israel, I probably do not want to take action from the US because it looks weird that multiple activities are happening simultaneously from different locations.
Linkedin will not ban you for using a different computer – they know you might be using a VPN, which is fine.
