Online privacy is not a common thing on the internet as every device leaves its footprints that can be used to identify users. Browser fingerprints are among such footprints.

Browser fingerprinting is a tracking method that leverages the configuration information browsers make visible to websites. It is a primary verification method that various websites use against web scraping bots. This is a challenge to many companies that want to make data-driven decisions because browser fingerprinting can interfere with the web scraping process.

What is GoLogin?

GoLogin is a browser management application for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. GoLogin app lets you control fingerprints, manage browser profiles, and much more.

With the GoLogin app, you can configure and change your browser fingerprint as you want. Furthermore, you can manage browser profiles, which lets you store, share, and sync sensitive information. If you want to learn more about GoLogin features, check out their official website.

How to use a proxy in GoLogin? 

GoLogin does not provide proxies by itself. If there is a need, you should learn how to integrate Oxylabs proxies with GoLogin for the best browsing experience. We prepared you a step-by-step guide on how to configure our residential proxies on GoLogin for Windows. Simply follow these steps:

1. Open the GoLogin app.

2. Click a button Create Your First Profile.

3. In the following window, enter the required proxy information. Under Profile Name, write Oxylabs. Next, choose Connection Type as HTTP Proxy. Under Proxy Host and Port, enter pr.oxylabs.io and 7777. Next, enter your login credentials under Username and Password. Finally, click a button Create Profile.

You can also use country-specific entries. For example, if you put us-pr.oxylabs.io and 10001 under *Proxy Host and Port, you will receive a US exit node with a sticky session.

4. All set! Now, click a Run button and wait for the browser to load.

5. If everything is done correctly, a website http://myip.gologin.app will open and show IP information.
