Transfer functionality allows you to fully transfer a browser profile from your Multilogin account to another. When a browser profile is transferred to another user it keeps all of its data such as cookies, local storage and extensions, tabs, proxy settings, browser parameters, and fingerprint overlays.

Solo plan users can not transfer profiles to any other user.
Team, Scale, and Custom plan users can transfer profiles to users who have Solo, Team, Scale, and Custom plans. It is not possible to transfer a browser profile from or to a team member.

Features of the transfer functionality:

  • Transfers can be performed in bulk or one by one
  • A transferred profile will be automatically removed from the owner's account after the transfer is completed
  • A Multilogin account password is required to complete a transfer
  • Users will be notified via email when the transfer is completed

Transferring browser profiles

The "Active session lock" feature will be disabled automatically for Solo plan recipients.
The browser profile will disappear from your account's profile list once the transfer is confirmed.

  1. Choose the browser profile you want to transfer
  2. Click the three vertical dots to the right of your profile's name and choose the “Transfer” option
  1. Insert the email address of the account you want to transfer this browser profile to into the “Recipient Multilogin account email” field
  2. Enter your Multilogin account password into the “Your Multilogin account password” field
  3. Click “Confirm transfer”

Transferring browser profiles in bulk

The "Active session lock" feature will be disabled automatically for Solo plan recipients.
The browser profile will disappear from your account's profile list once the transfer is confirmed.

  1. Go to the browser profiles list
  2. Select browser profile(s) that you want to transfer
  3. Click the “Transfer” option at the top of the screen
  1. Enter the email address of the account you want to transfer this browser profile to into the “Recipient Multilogin account email” field
  2. Enter your Multilogin account password into the “Your Multilogin account password” field
  3. Click “Confirm transfer”

Changing hardware fingerprints

When transferring browser profiles, be mindful that if you set Hardware fingerprint masking to the "Noise" mode and another user opens it on a machine with different hardware installed, the website may see that the Hardware readouts (Canvas, AudioContext, and WebGL) are not persistent across multiple launches.

The added noise is persistent. However, it is added as a filter on top of the existing machine fingerprint. So if the machine from which the browser profile is launched has changed, then the readouts also change. More information can be found here.

If non-changing readouts are required on multiple devices, then there are a few solutions:

  1. Use the "Share" and "Transfer" functionalities on identically configured Virtual Machines (VM) or Virtual Private Servers (VPS) with Hardware fingerprints set to the "Noise" mode. Since these machines will be set up the same way, the masked hardware fingerprints will remain consistent on multiple machines.
  2. Share profile between identical PC models with the same hardware, driver, and OS setup. Since these machines have the same hardware setup, the masked hardware prints will remain consistent on multiple machines.
  3. Run Multilogin on the same Mac computers. The same logic applies, but also helps better blend in as described above.
