Did you receive a warning from LinkedIn? 😱

No need to panic. 😌

We have the solution. 🎁

Waalaxy is no exception to the rule… LinkedIn doesn’t like automation tools, nor robots. Waalaxy is a tool that is nevertheless ultra-secure and does everything possible to protect your Linkedin account. If despite these security measures, your account is temporarily restricted. You will probably ask yourself: What should I do now? Waalaxy delivers small keys in this article.


Why does Linkedin restrict my account?

LinkedIn may restrict your account for several reasons. 👇

  • If you have continued to use a prohibited automation tool.
  • If LinkedIn considers your account not to be a real identity.
  • If you have shared content that has been reported multiple times.
  • Any other systematic violation of their TOS.

How does Waalaxy protect my Linkedin account?

Source code

Some automation tools modify the HTML code of Linkedin pages, making them easily detectable. We choose to leave the Linkedin source code alone to avoid being seen. 🚩 We simulate Linkedin queries to simulate human behavior.

Daily quotas

To prevent you from spam restrictions, we set daily quotas. This way, you can only send a maximum number of actions per day, and never the same number, making it virtually undetectable. 🙈

On each action quota, a 20% variable is applied every day. So you never send the same number. ( 82 on Monday, 93 on Tuesday, 80 on Wednesday…) Once your daily quotas are reached, they are updated 24 hours later.


We block the Linkedin banned extensions detection script, we additionally send a request, exactly as this script does, which says “All is good, no extensions detected”. 🤠
