The complete guide to Swordfishing contact information with Chrome Extension, Deep Search and File Upload. The only thing you should have done already is install the Swordfish Chrome Extension. Need help with that?

To install the extension just go here, click "Add to Chrome" and follow the steps.



Let's begin!


How To Use Swordfish Chrome Extension

 Where Swordfish Works:

  • LinkedIn (Regular/Recruiter/Recruiter Lite/Sales Navigator)
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Github
  • Stack Overflow
  • Meet-Up
  • Dribbble
  • Google Search Results (X-Ray)
  • Bing Search Results (X-Ray)

Swordfish In Bulk!

If you have a list of several social profiles on your webpage (Recruiter Project, Linkedin Search, Facebook group, Google search results to name a few), the Swordfish extension will identify the social profiles and show you who is available.

Works on:

  • Search Results Page
  • Saved Candidates/Leads Page
  • Group Members Page

What does it mean to select your "must have" contact info. This verifies you only pay for the data you need.

For example: 

"I only want results that have a mobile"


"I only want results that have a cell phone AND email"

Just set "must haves" in the pop out, and if the person does not have data that meets your requirement, Swordfish will skip the contact and move on to the next without using a credit!

Swordfish Facebook In Bulk Too!

Facebook Groups are untapped pools of talent. Developers, scientists and almost any type of niche position you might be after can be found in a Facebook Group!

Xray Search and Boolean Search results also work!

If you are knowledgeable in the ways of X-Ray Searches on Google or what is otherwise know as a Boolean Search, you can have Swordfish search your results. If you need help with  the syntax, just use the "Boolean Search" feature on the extension to build your personalized X-ray Search.

The Swordfish File Upload

Enrich lists of contacts with just a few clicks. Missing cell phones and personal emails? Upload your list to the Swordfish File Upload and get back results within seconds.

Use any of these data points:

  • LinkedIn URL (public profile)
  • Facebook URL
  • Twitter URL
  • Name & Company
  • Name & Title
  • Name & Location
  • Any Email
  • Any Phone Number

You can also set "must have" contact information as well as limit the number of credits to use on your list. 


For example, let's say you have a list of 1000 contacts, but only want info on the first 50 contacts we can match data for, you can do that.

Once you send the file to be processed, we'll go line by line to find you the contact information you need. You can sit back and we'll email you when the file is ready. You will get your exact file back with additional Swordfish columns that will include Name, Emails, Mobiles, Landlines and any Social profiles we can find.


The Swordfish Deep Search 

The Swordfish Deep is an extremely powerful tool to find contact information on individuals that may not have a social profile, or you have extremely limited information on, i.e. a home address, or just name & company.


  • If Swordfish finds multiple contacts at the same company with the same name, we will display all results.
  • 1 credit per match → no match, no charge
