Skrapp review 2021: Is it the best email extractor on the planet? We’ll see. If you’re a blogger, affiliate marketer, digital marker, HR or basically anyone else who “sends emails” this piece is for you.
Using Skrapp, you can find emails for just about anyone, using minimal data, in seconds. In most cases, you just need their name or company/website URL.
The tool is 100% free for up to 150 emails so that’s an added bonus. You don’t have to take my word on this Skrapp review because you can always verify the facts for yourself!
What is Skrapp?
Skrapp is an online, browser-based tool + Chrome extension. Its primary purpose and feature is- “helping you find and export emails”.
Skrapp can help you find e-mails from a number of sources, which include:
- Using name/company name
Skrapp User Interface
Most of you here are pretty web & tech-friendly, I’m confident of that. However, it always helps when these tools are easy to use regardless of our skill level, don’t you agree?
So, here’s what you see when you log in to Skrapp-
At the top you can see the 3 primary Skrapp features. The left-sidebar shows your account information and lists (explained later).
Actually using the software is equally easy as well. It’s mostly just you entering names or domain names, that’s literally all you need to do.
The company actually has video tutorials for every single feature. These are just a few minutes long and teach you how to use the tool to perfection.
Bottomline? Anyone and everyone who knows how to use the internet in general can use Skrapp.
Name and domain search
This is the feature I personally use the most, hence, let’s start here?
It basically lets you search for e-mails using a person’s name or domain/URL.
In other words, if you know the name of a person and the domain URL where they work at, you can find their e-mails.
I can only explain it better by showing you how it works. So, here’s me trying to find Tim Cook’s e-mail.
The above screenshot is nothing short of magic! I not only get his e-mail, but it also tells me if the e-mail is legit.
Note that not all results will have the “e-mail verified” tag. When the tag does show, it means the e-mail is certainly right.
However, there are cases when not valid emails are displayed as well:
In the above screenshot, Skrapp is upfront about the fact that the e-mail isn’t valid. It’s being shown maybe because it’s cited multiple times across websites and databases. However, Skrapp verifies these emails and tells us which work and which don’t.
I can now either save this email to a list, or, I can directly send them an email. Note that clicking on “send email” will take you to Tutanota and there’s no in-built email feature on Skrapp so far.
As the name suggests, this is a type of bulk search for entire companies. If you know the domain URL of a company, you can extract almost its entire email database (and a lot more).
E.g. if I want to get every e-mail registered with Tesla, this is what I’ll be using. Here’s what a typical search result looks like:
Do note that the “location” and “title” are optional. If I only enter the domain (www.tesla.com) it still works.
Now, there are a few aspects worth pointing out here. It doesn’t just give me the e-mail IDs, but a lot more.
So, I get the name of each individual, their position in the company and even their location.
That’s not enough? When I save any e-mail to my list, it gives me a lot more data!
As can be seen in the above screenshot, the list shows me a more precise location of the person, industry of the company, employee size, and even its LinkedIn page!
The entire process comprises of me entering a company URL > saving e-mail IDs! Tell me that isn’t easy, I dare you!
This is basically Skrapp’s automation feature. It lets you search through thousands of names/URLs in seconds.
All you need is a CSV file with a person’s name, company name, or domain/website address.
Once you upload the file, you can actually map the fields in your CSV to data fields on Skrapp.
The entire process takes a minute or two at best. However, once the file is uploaded all those names/URLs are scanned in seconds saving you hours of manual searching.
LinkedIn Search email finder
This is actually one of the core features that Skrapp offers.
Imagine you’re on LinkedIn. You can search for anything using the LinkedIn search bar. It can be a person, a company, a hashtag or anything else.
Once you get your search results, simply click on the Skrapp extension from the browser. This is what you should see:
So, you just select your destination list, no. of pages to export and you’ll have e-mail IDs of all the results from the LinkedIn page (if available).
This isn’t a “feature” rather is just a core component of Skrapp.
So, before you can use Skrapp, you must create at least 1 list. This is where you can save the emails you find.
E.g. I’ve got 3 different lists currently. One says “website admins”, the other says “editors” and the third is just for “potential clients”. You can name these lists any way you want.
Finding e-mail in real-time using Skrapp extensions
This is one of the most impressive aspects of this Skrapp review. It lets me find emails without even being on the Skrapp website.
Well, yes. Basically, I can be on any random website and extract emails off the domain in a single click!
E.g. I’m on the SpaceX website (in the screenshot below) and I simply click on the Skrapp extension on my browser. This is what it shows:
It’s not just “cool”, it’s very fast, easy to use and just makes things easy!
Again, it doesn’t just show you the email IDs. You get a lot more than that. (To actually view the email IDs, you must add these to your list).
Skrapp pricing plans
So, how much does this magic tool cost?
Well, fortunately, nothing! You can literally get started right now, for $0.00! It offers a free plan which gives you 150 emails.
That’s a pretty decent number to check and verify the tool’s features and claims. Once you think it’s worth it, it has 4 different plans you can opt for:
- Starter: $39.00/month
- Seeker: $79.00/month
- Enterprise: $159.00/month
- Global: $239.00/month
The differences are primarily based on the number of users and number of emails you can find/month.
Do note that these prices are yearly, you’ll pay 20% more/month on each plan if you opt for the monthly packages.
This is one of the less impressive aspects on this Skrapp review. The platform doesn’t have a live chat. There’s a bot that throws a few knowledgebase articles at you and that’s it.
The help center does have a ton of articles/FAQ answers. They’ll solve most of your problems right away. The video instructions are helpful as well. Obviously, you can get in touch using emails as well.
However, the lack of a live chat sure hurts. Emails are just not real-time and feel outdated (for problem-solving) in 2021.

Skrapp review final verdict- Is Skrapp worth it?
Considering Skrapp is free to try, there’s not a lot you can go wrong! In terms of features, it’s impressive.
The UI is extremely easy to work with, the extensions make extracting emails super easy and then there’s obviously the web app.
The support sure can be improved. However, considering there’s not a learning curve anyway, I suppose that can be looked over.
