We are excited to bring you automation features that you have been waiting for! Easy API access, local profiles and headless mode are already available FOR FREE in Multilogin X beta. Sign up and get started now with our comprehensive API documentation. Keep in mind that the information below applies to Multilogin 6 only.

Can I run Mimic and Stealthfox in headless mode?

You can use Multilogin 6 in both GUI and headless mode. However, if you want to run browser profiles, you still need to have GUI.

Which plans have access to Automation tools?

With Scale and Custom plans you will have access to our Local API.

Keep in mind that sub-accounts/team members don’t have access to automation features.

Can I use Docker?

It should work with a few workarounds.

We have not tested Multilogin with Docker, however, there shouldn't be any major blockers from our end. Make sure that your system is set up according to our minimum system requirements.

We are planning to release Multilogin with full Docker support in the near future. Right now, this feature is in alpha-testing phase.

How do I define the port?

The port for Multilogin is defined in the file by entering the following line (example for port 35000):


The port number has to be in the range from 10000 to 49151. Check our quick guide to starting browser automation for step-by-step instructions.

What is Selenium Hardened?

It works like normal Selenium with the added feature that it cannot be seen by websites due to our anti-fingerprinting technologies. It is built into our browsers, so you don't have to download it or add it as a separate dependency.

Can I save profiles locally instead of using your cloud storage?

Local profiles are already available in our latest version Multilogin X! Sign up for our free beta and try them out right away.

Will you make an automation script for me?

We do not offer a service for creating tailor-made programs for you. If you have a script that is running into errors with our software, we can take a look if it is in Python/JavaScript. For this contact us at [email protected].

Can I still use Multilogin UI with automation?

Yes, you can still use the Multilogin application.

Is the feature "Get new fingerprint" available in API?

We do not have an API endpoint that would randomly generate profile fingerprints like the UI button "Get new fingerprint". However, you can still get a new fingerprint by creating a new profile or updating an existing one using the POST/profile/{uuid} endpoint. It will update the profile information settings along with the fingerprint.

What are API rate limits?

Rate limits differ by 2 endpoint types.

  • For requests returning a list (e.g. listProfiles) – 1 request/minute
  • All other requests – 10 requests/minute.

Upon reaching the limit, the server will respond with the following error: {"status":"ERROR","value":"rate limit exceeded."}.

Can I import cookies via API?

Yes, it is possible to import cookies via API.

How do I get a group ID?

  1. Create the group manually within the app UI if it has not been created yet
  2. Add a profile manually within the app UI into this group
  3. Run a script that returns the list of profiles
  4. On that list you will see profile IDs and group IDs

Here’s our documentation on how to return the list of profiles.
