With the ability to create hundreds of unique digital fingerprints, antidetect browsers are perfect for protecting online privacy. Businesses can also implement them for such purposes as ad placement monitoring, account management, social media automation, automation of repetitive tasks, or web scraping.
What is an antidetect browser?
An antidetect browser is a piece of software that creates an isolated browsing environment to prevent tracking. Most solutions also allow creating a unique browser fingerprint by modifying parameters such as hardware specifications, IP address, geolocation, and more.
The demand for anti-detect browsers is rising, and numerous companies have emerged, offering browsers of differing capabilities. Following our previous articles on Incognition vs. Multilogin and AdsPower vs. Multilogin, we'll review GoLogin vs. AdsPower.
Let’s kick off by comparing the pricing plans for the two platforms.
GoLogin provides four pricing plans:
Professional: $49/mo, 100 profiles, no team members
Business: $99/mo, 300 profiles, 10 team members
Enterprise: $199/mo, 1000 profiles, 20 team members
Custom: from $299/mo, from 2000, 20 team members
If you pay yearly, you can get a 50% discount.
Standard features included in all plans: Free proxies, encrypted profiles, cloud web version, Android app, REST API access, database of browser fingerprints, and more.
Similarly, AdsPower also provides four pricing plans:
Free: 2 profiles
Base: $5.4/month, 10 profiles, human assistance, profile sharing
Pro: $30/month, 100 profiles, automatic proxy matching
Custom: custom number of profiles and dedicated professional assistance.
AdsPower offers -40% off any plan if you pay annually.
Standard features included in all plans: Profile sync across your computers, Firefox engine-based browser, browser fingerprint control, HTTP(S), SOCKS5 & SSH proxy integration (see proxy for AdsPower), account import via login/password or cookies, and more.
The pricing range differs significantly across the two platforms. AdsPower is a more affordable option, starting as low as $5.4 a month. A free plan with limited features is also offered, while GoLogin only provides a 7-day free trial.
Both anti-detect browsers are compatible with major platforms like Mac, Windows, and Linux (beta version for AdsPower). However, GoLogin takes it up a notch by additionally offering Google Play and Cloud Launch support.
GoLogin system requirements:
Minimum 2 GB RAM
1 GB free disk space
AdsPower system requirements:
Minimum 2 GB RAM
Minimum 2 GB free disk space
However, GoLogin doesn’t support 32-bit systems, while AdsPower can handle both 64-bit and 32-bit.
Provides free proxies
Support of iOS mobile device digital fingerprints
Automatic proxy matching
Being providers of products to improve privacy online, it’s no surprise that GoLogin and AdsPower pay special attention to their data security policies. Let’s take a look at them.
GoLogin collects only the necessary information and doesn’t share it with third parties unless required for shipping or legal purposes. In cases when they do collect information, it’s first encrypted and only then transferred. The data is then stored in special servers to ensure security.
Apart from taking care to collect only the necessary information in the first place, GoLogin also ensures that no unauthorized employees access the data, and laptops containing personally identifiable information are kept in secure environments.
Like GoLogin, AdsPower will need information to perform such tasks as user authentication or payment processing. They also respect their user’s data and implement numerous safeguarding techniques such as firewalls, encryption, or administrative security measures to protect user information. Moreover, they state that identifying users is impossible on their platform, preserving anonymity.
AdsPower seeks to collect only the necessary data and stores it in data centers with high levels of security. They also ensure suitable contractual protections from their partners to safeguard user data.
An anti-detect browser works by constructing an isolated browsing environment where users can change their fingerprint parameters. To do this, both platforms offer proprietary anti-detect browsers – Orbita for GoLogin, Sun Browser and Flower Browser for AdsPower.
Orbita is a Chromium-based browser, and so is Sun Browser. However, AdsPower also offers a Firefox-based option – Flower Browser. In this regard, AdsPower offers a significant advantage because many websites are less weary of Firefox requests.
Finally, GoLogin utilizes Warpcore technology to allow running browser profiles with different versions of Orbita, thus reducing the chances of blocking.
With both platforms, you can create a random browser fingerprint or customize it according to your needs. You can craft extremely detailed fingerprints by setting such things as resolution, cookies, hardware storage, etc.
Both platforms are similar in this regard, although AdsPower also allows the creation of mobile device fingerprints, offering a huge advantage. On the other hand, GoLogin has a built-in browser fingerprint analyzer that informs users of anonymity-compromising settings.
GoLogin has a minimalistic interface, making it easier for users to navigate and operate. Such elements as status, notes, tags, or proxy information are immediately displayed, and more features are available under different tabs and sections.
Similarly, AdsPower allows users to quickly set up browser profiles and check important information about existing browser profiles, such as users and available platforms, or open them via the browser. On the other hand, it has a busier interface, with overlays and promotional material, a common feature among freemium options.
Both platforms can be used for a similar array of use cases, which can be summarized as follows:
Account management: Managing multiple accounts across social media and e-commerce platforms.
Online advertising: Implementing different geolocations and setups to analyze the quality and reliability of ads.
Web scraping: Anti-detect browsers are a common option for web scraping that helps prevent hurdles caused by anti-bot measures. They’re often used in combination with other scraping tools like proxies or APIs. To learn more, you can read our integration guides for AdsPower and GoLogin.
Privacy: Relevant for both businesses and individuals, as anti-detect browsers significantly enhance privacy and security by preventing third-privacy services from collecting information.
AdsPower has a solid 4.7 rating (200+ reviews) whereas GoLogin is only slightly lagging behind with a 4.1 rating (100+ reviews). On the other hand, GoLogin has a higher review on G2 (5 stars) whereas AdsPower has a 4.5 star review.
Overall, GoLogin users praise it for safety, security, and data management. AdsPower customers appreciate it for the same categories but also highlight ease of use. Among the cons, slow performance was mentioned for GoLogin and high RAM usage for AdsPower.
Both platforms are a good solution for people looking to implement a secure anti-detect browser. AdsPower is a bit more affordable, with plans starting at $5.4/month and a freemium option available. On the other hand, GoLogin is more user-friendly and offers a mobile app, cloud access, and free proxies. Ultimately, the platform you choose depends solely on the requirements of your particular project.
