If you're having trouble using the folkX extension, it may be due to third-party cookies enablement ruining the fun on LinkedIn or on your Google account. Here's how to fix it.

LinkedIn settings

You need to ensure that you've enabled cookies on your LinkedIn profile. For that just follow these quick steps:

  • Go to your Settings & Privacy

  • Click Data Privacy in the menu

  • Select Manage cookies preferences

  • Switch the toggle next to Cookies from Off to On

Google settings

You need to make sure that you have enabled cookies for folkX on your Google account. For that, just follow these quick steps:

  • Go to your Google accounts settings: chrome://settings/cookies

  • Go to Privacy & Security and then Cookies and other site data

  • By default, the second option "Block third-party cookies in Incognito" should be selected but it's possible that on your account the third option is selected: "Block third-party cookies"

  • You can either select the second option, or you can add Linkedin and other websites where you use the extension as trusted sites in the third option:

    • In the section "Sites that can always use cookies", click on "Add"

    • A popup will appear, and you need to add the website url, e.g. [*.] and select "Including third-party cookies on this site" and then click Add

  • Reload your page. folkX should now work!
