🔧 Troubleshooting Tips:
If you do not see any pop-ups during this process, please turn off any ad-blockers that are connected to your web browser.
If you are already logged in to a LinkedIn account in your web browser, Mention will quickly recognize this and attempt to connect to the LinkedIn account that is signed in. This will help you get through the process quicker! However, if the account is managed on a different LinkedIn account then we recommend signing out of LinkedIn in your web browser, using an incognito window, or using a different browser that is not signed in to anything!
If you login to Mention using your account credentials and Mention notifies you that there are no pages to connect, please contact the admin who manages the LinkedIn page. You must first get access to the page via page roles on LinkedIn platform. Contact us for more help!
