Mobile browser profiles emulate the behavior of mobile browsers and allow accessing functionality that is not available for desktop browsers, such as changing screen orientation, zooming in and out of the page, or interacting with a page as if using a touch screen. This helps get more trust from target websites. 

When you create a new mobile browser profile, our fingerprint builder will add all the relevant fingerprints that a real mobile device has, such as: 

  • Screen resolution (typical for mobile devices)
  • User-agent and platform (Android browsers values)
  • Fonts (typical for mobile devices)
  • WebGL parameters
  • MaxTouchpoints (navigator object telling the maximum number of simultaneous touch contact points supported by the current device). MaxTouchPoints value can be checked here.
Websites see the profile as though it supports touchscreen, so you can rotate the screen orientation and zoom in the page.

To create a mobile browser profile, use the following process:

  1. Click “Create New” in the left navigation panel
  2. Enter the name of the browser profile
  3. Select “Android” as the operating system
  4. Select the “Proxy” tab if you would like to add proxies 
    Paste the proxy details into the “IP or host” field in the format IP:port:username:password  or host:port:username:password and other fields will be populated automatically.
  5. Click the “Check proxy” button to check the proxy connection
    1. “Connection test passed” means that Multilogin was able to connect to the proxy successfully and get the required IP-dependent data (TimeZoneWebRTC, and Geolocation)
    2. “Connection test failed” means that Multilogin couldn't connect to the proxy. You can check this page for possible solutions
  6. All browser privacy settings and fingerprints have now been generated automatically to their full capacity, but you may configure them if needed
    1. You can edit all IP related settings (TimeZoneWebRTC, and Geolocation) after the Proxy settings
    2. If you press the “Advanced” settings tab on the left navigation panel, you will be able to manage each parameter individually
We recommend keeping all other default settings unchanged for the profile's best performance.
  1. Click “Create profile”

After saving, you will see a new profile added to the list of your profiles.

Users are also able to create mobile profiles using REST API.

A mobile browser profile emulates the browser application on the mobile device. Since it does not act as a mobile device itself, the installation of other mobile applications is not available.
