If you are going to use Incogniton, you will of course need to create a browser profile. A browser profile is unique with its own fingerprints, this prevents multiple browser profiles from being linked to each other. In this article we will explain how to create a new unique virtual browser profile in Incogniton.
- When you are in the browser profile overview, click on the ‘Create Single’ button. After this, the overview page of the browser profile will appear. On this page you can add the name, group, operating system, and the browser version of the Incogniton Browser that you want to use. We recommend that you always use the most recent browser version. If you would like to you can also hit the button ‘Get new fingerprint’; when you do this the hardware configuration and navigator settings of the browser profile will randomly change.
- The next step is to attach a proxy to your browser profile. You can do this via the tab ‘Proxy’. In this tab you need to add a proxy, the port of the proxy, username, and password of the proxy. You can use the following type of connections: HTTPS, SOCKS4 and SOCKS5. If you want to learn more about proxy connections we recommend you read this article.
- Once you have completed the above steps your browser profile is ready to use. You can create your browser profile by hitting the button ‘Create Profile’.
Please note that it is not necessary to configure this because these settings are already filled in by Incogniton based on the proxy information and the automatically generated fingerprint. However, if you’re not satisfied with the standard configuration, you can also customize the browser fingerprint configuration yourself.
- Timezone: Automatically filled in based on the proxy information, but if you want to you can customize it yourself.
- WebRTC: The WebRTC setting prevents your browser from bypassing your proxy to leak your legit IP address. It’s automatically set to ‘Altered’. If you want to you can change this on ‘Real’ then your real IP will be used for WebRTC. You can also turn off WebRTC or use the WebRTC from the proxy.
- Geolocation: This setting can be used to change your Geolocation; it is usually filled in based on the proxy details. However, if you want to you can customize this yourself.
- Navigator: With this setting you can change the navigator settings of a browser profile. Please read this guide on how to do this.
- Font masking: You can decide whether you want to enable or disable font masking in this tab. It’s default setting is for it to be enabled.
- Media devices: On this tab you can alter the media device configuration of the browser profile. Please note: If you want to use your camera in an Incogniton browser profile you need to turn media device masking ‘Off’.
- Hardware: On this tab you can configure canvas masking, AudioContext and WebGL settings.
- DNS: On this tab you can configure a custom DNS (Domain Name System), it’s regularly disabled.
- Other: On this tab you can configure the following settings:
- ‘Active session lock’, if you want to prevent that your browser profile can be opened at multiple devices at the same time you need to enable ‘Active Session Lock’. This will prevent syncing errors of browser profiles.
- ‘Show profile name in browser’, with this the name of the browser profile is visible in the URL bar. When you have a lot of browser profiles opened at the same time it will be easier to select the right browser profile
