How To - Export Your LinkedIn Connections

How To - Export Your LinkedIn Connections

As of December 2018 Linkedin stopped giving email addresses in export files. So you can no longer export the email addresses of your connections unless they specifically allow it with a new privacy setting. The default for this new privacy setting is "no". Almost none of your connections will find it and change it to "yes". End result - you will not get email addresses for your connection when you do an export.

This is a big loss for those who worked hard to build a professional network on the assumption they could contact their connections independently outside Linkedin.

Here's how to export your Connections..

1. Click the Me icon at top of your LinkedIn homepage.
2. Click Settings & Privacy.
3. Scroll down and click "Download your data" (you may be prompted to sign in again.)
4. A display of options will appear directly below "Download your data". Just select the options you need and click "Request archive".
