A quick guide to starting browser automation

Updated 9 months ago by Yvonne

Step 1 -  Download the Multilogin app and create an account

In order to start using Multilogin, you can simply download the app from our website here. Once the app has been installed, you can create a new account in the app by clicking "Create new account link".

Once you are in the app, you will need to choose the plan that suits your needs and proceed with a purchase through Subscribe now button. In order to gain access to Multilogin API, you would need to subscribe/apply to our Scale or Automate plans.

Download the Multilogin app and create an account

Step 2 -  Predefine the application listening port

Once your Scale or Automate subscription is active, you would need to predefine the Multilogin listening port in file so it will be constant on each application launch. In our example, we will be setting the port to 35000.

Open the Multilogin application:

  1. Please go to 'My account' tab in the application and press 'Open logs directory'
  2.  / directory will be opened, go up in the directory to get to the /
  3. Open the file
  4. For our example, add the following string: multiloginapp.port=35000
  5. Save the file

 Predefine the application listening port

Alternatively, you can find file in the directory:

Windows: C:\Users\%username%\

Mac OS: /Users/%username%/

Linux: /home/%username%/

Note: The folder may be hidden in your system.

Step 3 - Familiarise yourself with Multilogin CLI and Local API possibilities

More information about our CLI and Local API from our documentation.

All Local API endpoints are available in our Swagger documentation.


Step 4 - Test our code example
