You may notice an icon resembling an eye with a line through it in your URL bar. This is an indicator that cookies are being blocked.

Steps to Resolve:

The issue arises because your browser is currently set to block third-party cookies, which are necessary for the RocketReach extension to function properly.

To resolve this, you need to adjust your browser settings to allow third-party cookies for all websites.

If you're encountering this error message, follow the instructions detailed below for Chrome and Brave browsers.

2. Click the toggle to enable 'Third-party cookies'

Note: This setting is specific to the website you're on at the moment. If you're using a Chrome extension on various websites, you'll need to adjust this setting for each one individually.
