In order to manage multiple accounts in Multilogin and avoid restrictions, it is important to use a different IP address for each browser profile. Usually proxies are used to achieve that, but you can also use 4G connection on your mobile device. In this article, we'll discuss how to do it.

Unlike a proxy that changes the IP of a specific profile, 4G connection typically changes the IP of the whole computer. That's why with this method, you will be able to use only one profile at a time.

You can also use a mobile proxy farm made of USB dongles. These are programs that allow modems to work as proxies and control software for monitoring and checking the operation of the farm. You will be able to set a proxy for each profile and use several at the same time. In this case each dongle of the farm needs to have its own IP, port, username, and password.

Using Multilogin with 4G connection

  1. Connect your computer to your mobile hotspot or modem
  2. Launch any browser profile in the app and check the IP address on our checker page or whatismyipaddress.com
  3. If you need to work with another account in a different browser profile, close the current profile and change your IP address (see recommendations below)
Remember to check your IP address after changing it in order to make sure the new one is assigned.
  1. Repeat steps 2 and 3

Changing the IP of your mobile connection

You can use any method below to change your mobile IP.

  • Switch the Airplane mode on and off for the mobile hotspot
  • Unplug your router or modem for at least five minutes (depends on how often your ISP renews IP addresses in general)
  • Unplug the modem and router if your router is separate from the modem (most are a combination device these days). Leave them off for at least 5 minutes. Then first power the modem on, followed by the router

If you need to work with several browser profiles at the same time and don't want to create your mobile proxy farm, you will need to purchase a proxy. Here you can view our recommended proxy providers.
