GoLogin is a browser environment management application that is available for Windows, Linux, and macOS. Its primary purpose is to help you easily integrate proxies, change your browser fingerprint, and improve online privacy in general.
1. Download GoLogin
If you’ve already downloaded the GoLogin multi profile browser and registered an account, skip to step 3. Otherwise, start by going to their download page and either waiting or clicking on the “Thank you for choosing GoLogin” bit.
Once the software finished downloading, install it, and start it up.
2. Register an account
GoLogin will prompt you with a login window. Click “I don’t have an account Sign Up” below the “Log In” button to get started. Go through the usual steps of entering your email address and password.
In the next screen, select “Anonymity” or any other use case. Selecting “Other” will add another menu, so it’s not recommended to do so.
3. Create a New Profile
GoLogin lets you have a browser profile for almost every combination of versions, locations, and many other features. To start creating a profile and to begin integrating a residential proxy, click “New Profile” at the top of the menu.
A new menu will appear, taking you straight to the GoLogin proxies tab. However, first you’ll need to fill in the profile name. It can be anything like a proxy provider name such as “Razorproxy”.
4. Fill out the proxy details
Once you have the profile name typed in, hover over the “Connection Type” setting, click it, and select “HTTP proxy”. GoLogin features a multitude of other possible proxies, however, most IP addresses will be used through HTTP.
Under “Proxy Host and Port” input one of the datacenter or residential IPs you’ve received from your provider. All datacenter and residential IPs will be accompanied by a port number, so if it’s not the default “80”, be sure to fill it in.
Under “Login” and “Password” fill out the USER:PASS combination you were given by the provider.
5. Start the profile
After clicking “Create Profile”, you’ll be brought back to the main menu. You can always manage browser profiles and handle multiple accounts from this screen. Now, however, there’s no reason to do so, so simply click “Run” to start the browser.
If all goes as planned, a new screen will appear and the software will attempt to do browser fingerprinting to ensure that you are anonymous. They will display a multitude of features, including the currently predicted and supported location.
If, by chance, the attempt at running fails, simply click on any spot outside of the “Run” button to open a side menu. From there you can manage browser profiles without having to go through the same process as previously.
Frequently Asked Questions
If your main goal is to stay anonymous or private online with GoLogin, datacenter and residential proxies are essential. Otherwise, websites will be able to keep tabs on your location, even if you avoid cookie tracking and browser fingerprinting.
Additionally, if you’re doing web scraping, botting, or any other automation online, websites will frequently ban your IP address. You can completely circumvent these bans through IP rotation, which are enabled by datacenter and residential proxies.
In most cases, you’ll want to use residential or datacenter proxies for your GoLogin profiles. If you’re looking to simply stay anonymous online, shared datacenter proxies will be the cheapest option that will do the job.
For use cases such as web scraping and botting, the best proxies will vary. We recommend checking out guides dedicated to those activities to find out which proxies will be best.
