The page "My account" contains three sections that will allow you to change your application and default browser profile settings. This article describes the available values and how you can alter them.

My account

In this section, you can do the following:

  • Change your account password safely
If you choose to reset your password using the "Forgot password" option, you will encounter an issue described on this page.
  • Cancel your subscription
  • Check the app logs by clicking "Open logs directory"
This will provide you with more information on the issue you might be experiencing.
  • Log out of all Multilogin accounts

Default profile settings

Any changes made in this section are only applied to new profiles. To edit the settings for existing profiles, click on the 3 dots on the right of the profile and choose "Edit". See this page for more details.

Default browser type

Here you can set which browser type will be selected by default:

  • Mimic is built on Chrome
  • Stealthfox is built on Firefox

Choosing between the two is a matter of your personal preference. If you work with Google Ads, however, we do recommend using Mimic.

Default languages for Mimic and Stealthfox

If you would like your web pages to be displayed in a specific language, you can select it here. Click "Edit" → search your language → drag and drop it at the top of the list on the right. If a web page is available in the selected language, it will be used to display it.

You can also edit this value for a specific profile in "Edit profile" → "Advanced" → "Navigator" → "Languages".
Browser interface language is the same as your OS language. If you would like to change it, the system language on your computer must be changed first.

Screen resolution settings

The values you set here will determine the screen resolution (window size) of your browser profiles. The system will automatically select the value between Minimal and Maximal settings during profile creation.

You can also edit this value for a specific profile in "Edit profile" → "Advanced" → "Navigator" → "Screen resolution".
  • Native is your original screen resolution (check your computer's screen parameters for Windows and macOS)
If you work in a team, it should be the smallest screen resolution in your team.
  • Minimal should be something you are comfortable to work with
  • Maximal should not be bigger than Native

Storage options

In this section you can enable or disable passwords, bookmarks and browser history saving for your profiles.

You can also edit this value for a specific profile in "Edit profile" → "Advanced" → "Storage options".

Application settings

In this section, you can select the following values:

If you click "Reset optimization" and select different websites, the changes to application optimization will apply only to new profiles. The existing profiles will remain unchanged.
  • Strict mode: we recommend that this setting is enabled
While this feature limits the diversity of fingerprints, it helps mitigate certain browser fingerprinting vectors. For example, if Mimic core version is 90 but the newest Chrome version is 92, normally you will be getting fingerprints for versions 89 – 90. However, with the Strict mode turned on, you will only get fingerprints for the 90th version.
  • Profile update warning: enable or disable a pop-up on every profile update
  • Help widget: easily start a chat with support right from the app
