View Full Names on LinkedIn for Free with LIPPL


Lippl 1I am pleased to share a cool and very practical free Chrome extension that allows you to quickly and easily view the public profiles of LinkedIn members beyond your 2nd degree network, thus showing you their full name.

Victor Soroka first shared Lippl with me back in January. I had the honor of meeting him while at LinkedIn’s Talent Connect 2012 in London and apparently Victor has been busy working on a great way to view the public profiles of practically anyone on LinkedIn.

Once you’ve installed the Lippl Chrome extension, all you have to do is open the Lippl sidebar and click “open.” It works by automatically opening up the person’s public LinkedIn profile in a new Incognito window, so even if you’re logged into LinkedIn, LinkedIn can’t tell whether or not you “know” the person (within 1st or 2nd degree) – as such, you can see their full name.

Lippl automates the process of opening public LinkedIn profiles in Incognito windows in Chrome, revealing full names of people who are beyond your 2nd degree network
Here’s a quick video demo of Lippl in action:

I’m happy to support Victor and his team, so if you haven’t already, please check out Lippl and contact the Lippl team with any questions, issues or suggestions.

    Great tool! I’ve been using it for about a week and the app integrates seamlessly into LinkedIn. Beats taking the extra time to search their name/profile info in Google. Thanks for sharing!

    Glen, Thanks for sharing. I’ve put this in, and need to spend a bit more with it. I’ve also installed SellHack, which I’ve found to have a pretty good success rate of pulling back email addresses for profiles. (Pretty good, not great, but I think it’s still new). Have you used that, and if so, what are your thoughts on how LinkedIn will react to these tools?

    Worked like a charm for a month, now it says full profile can be seen only for level 1 and 2 connections. Linkedin at work?

  • Scott Kwait

    In Google, I’ve been able to find their full names simply by copy/pasting their 3 header lines (Name/companies/location) and then opening up as InCognito. It’ll open up a separate screen without having to download another app. Has anyone seen any other benefits to installing this?

  • Lippl

    We updated Lippl today so it should be easier now. When you need to find someone LinkedIn public profile link (who is 3rd level connection to you) just click on Search button and then click on person name in search results list.
