Warning messages on LinkedIn

If you use LeadnLead too heavily, LinkedIn may send you a warning message. Because we know, LinkedIn is not a fan of automation tools…

Your account may be restricted from LinkedIn for a period of time.

First of all, why is LinkedIn restricting your account? What to do if this happens to you?

We answer your questions right here. ⬇️

Why Linkedin can restrict your account?

LinkedIn may restrict your account because the platform has strict rules regarding the use of automation tools to interact with its network. 

Among the different reasons, the most common are the following. 👇

  • Violation of LinkedIn Terms of Service: Use of LeadnLead may violate LinkedIn's Terms of Service, which prohibits the use of automated tools to interact with others users inauthentically or excessively.

  • Spamming and unsolicited solicitations: If you use LeadnLead to send messages or connection requests to a large number of people, which are also poorly targeted, LinkedIn may consider this as spamming and take action to restrict your account.

  • Abnormal activity or suspected fake accounts: Using automation tools like LeadnLead may cause abnormal activity on your LinkedIn account, which may trigger security alerts. If LinkedIn detects suspicious activity or your account is associated with behavior related to fake accounts, it may restrict your account as a precaution.

🧲 It is important to note that LinkedIn's policies and rules may change over time, so it is essential to review the latest platform guidelines and use LeadnLead responsibly and in accordance with the rules established by LinkedIn.
