Browser fingerprinting has seen a significant surge in usage, increasing from 1% to a quarter of the top 10,000 websites between 2013 and 2020. Despite the growing fingerprinting trend, a 2018 study reveals a significant drop in the uniqueness of online fingerprints. This implies that it’s becoming increasingly challenging for websites to identify and track users.

This is exactly what anti-detect browsers like GoLogin and Multilogin aim to eliminate – unique fingerprints, ensuring users blend in seamlessly with the overall web traffic (see if you’re unique here). While GoLogin has been in operation since 2019, Multilogin has a longer history dating back to 2015. With varied experiences in the field, how different are these anti-detect browsers? Let’s find the answer by comparing GoLogin against Multilogin based on ten factors.

1. Pricing

GoLogin

The pricing of GoLogin goes as follows for a monthly subscription:

  • A free-tier plan limited to 3 browser profiles

  • Free trial with full access – 7 days

  • Professional (100 profiles) – $49/month

  • Business (300 profiles) – $99/month

  • Enterprise (1000 profiles) – $199/month

  • Custom (2000-10000 profiles) – $299/month

Currently, if you choose to pay annually, the prices will be discounted by 50%.

Multilogin

In comparison, Multilogin’s pricing is higher (note the prices are in Euros):

  • Free for use with no expiration date but limited to 3 browser profiles

  • Solo (100 profiles) – €99/month

  • Team (300 profiles) – €199/month

  • Scale (1000 profiles) – €399/month

Alternatively, if you pay annually, you’ll receive a 25% discount.

2. Platform compatibility

3. Resource consumption

Both tools require at least the following:

  • 4 GB of RAM

  • 1 GB of free disk space

Furthermore, Multilogin says their browsers typically consume as many resources as the Google Chrome browser, which is known for high consumption.

4. Unique solutions and features

Both anti-detect browsers offer distinct features that make these tools differ from each other. So, let’s overview the main properties they possess:

GoLogin

  • Orbita browser (Chromium engine) with support for Google Chrome extensions

  • Install on an unlimited number of devices

  • Generate browser fingerprints and customize them

  • Share accounts, multiple profiles, proxies, and assign permissions

  • Import and export cookies 

  • Integrated free proxies

  • Profiles stored in a secure cloud storage

  • Two-factor authentication

Multilogin

  • Mimic Browser (Chromium engine) and Stealthfox (Firefox engine)

  • Supports Google Chrome and Firefox extensions, Selenium, and Puppeteer

  • Generate browser fingerprints and customize them

  • Share accounts, profiles, and assign permissions

  • Automatically collect cookies from URLs with CookieRobot

  • Import and export cookies

  • Store and manage multiple browser profiles locally or on a cloud

  • Paste text as it would be typed by a human

5. Data security and privacy

The level of security of any tool can make it or break it for the business; hence, it’s crucial to read up on the security mechanisms before trusting any software with private data. The good news is that both GoLogin and Multilogin have stringent practices in place.

GoLogin

During registration, users provide essential information where GoLogin ensures sole ownership without selling or renting user data. The data isn’t shared with any third party unless required to fulfill the user’s request.

Google API service is used for registration and authentication, as well as email collection for multi-account functionality. Any information collected during this process is encrypted and stored on special servers.

GoLogin states that any sensitive data is first encrypted and then transferred securely to encrypted servers that have limited access. They use a key derivation function called Argon2 for maximum security at exceptional speeds and AES for storing and encrypting passwords and cookies when using the Orbita browser. Furthermore, only company employees who need the information to carry out their specific job get access to personally identifiable data.

Multilogin

Multilogin has a much more detailed privacy policy with an emphasis on users having the right to fair processing, transparency, and access to their personal data. Any data adjustments or removal can be performed by contacting Multilogin’s Data Protection Officer directly via email.

The data processing procedures are also compliant with relevant laws and regulations, such as the Personal Data Protection Act and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

When it comes to security, all sensitive data is encrypted when using Multilogin software before being transferred to their servers. They use the md5 hash function to transform your account password, and when it gets to their servers, the SHA-2 hash is used to encrypt it once again. The password is never stored on their servers, and only its derivative is stored as a master password. Moreover, Multilogin uses AES cipher to encrypt cookies before sending them to the cloud storage, ensuring proper data security.

6. Anti-fingerprinting technology

The ways GoLogin and Multilogin safeguard their users from fingerprinting can be summed into four main methods:

  • Changing the IP address

  • Altering the user-agent header

  • Modifying different fingerprint parameters

  • Managing cookies

Both tools allow users to utilize these four methods and customize their fingerprints in detail. GoLogin overcomes fingerprinting through its anti-detect browser called Orbita, while Multilogin gives two options for their users: the Mimic Browser and Stealthfox.

While a staggering number of parameters can be customized as desired, both GoLogin and Multilogin may limit the degree of customization in order to restrict users from creating fingerprints that stand out on the web. For instance, this is the case with Multilogin and TLS fingerprinting, where they specifically don’t mask TLS parameters as that would only create a unique user appearance and would make it easy for websites to identify the same user.

7. Browser fingerprint customization

GoLogin and Multilogin anti-detect browsers allow users to generate browser fingerprints with just a click of a button while simultaneously enabling almost complete fingerprint customization using these parameters:

GoLogin

AudioContext, Browser, Canvas, Client Rects, External Storage, Fonts, Geo-location, Languages, Local Storage, Media devices, Platform, Plugins, Resolution, Timezone, User-Agent, WebGL Image, WebGL Metadata, and WebRTC.

Multilogin

AudioContext, Canvas, External Storage, Flash, Fonts, Geo-location, Languages, Local Storage, Media devices, Platform, Plugins, Proxy, Resolution, Timezone, User-Agent, WebGL Image, WebGL metadata, and WebRTC.

8. Usability and user interface

GoLogin stands out for its minimalistic and clean user interface with extensive settings hidden under various buttons. Its navigation comprises browser profiles and a button to quickly create a new profile. Its main menu is hidden, with options for viewing the existing profiles, creating folders, and importing profiles, and more.

While users have reported slow loading times when using the Orbita browser, GoLogin’s user experience is fairly streamlined overall to allow quick and easy fingerprint creation for multiple browser profiles.

GoLogin also offers an API with which users can access the tool programmatically to manage profiles, proxies, cookies, fingerprinting, cloud operations, and much more.

Multilogin

Multilogin also offers a minimalistic dashboard, yet it differs from GoLogin in that its main page has all the necessary resources to control the anti-detect experience. The navigation menu has buttons for creating a new profile, generating an instant profile, viewing all the existing profiles, managing team access, account settings, plugins, and a quick link to the support center. 

Once you open a profile in Mimic Browser or Stealthfox, you’ll notice that the user interface is almost the same as Chrome or Firefox. This factor makes it much easier to work with Multilogin if you’re familiar with the latter interface.

Multilogin has an API that users can utilize to create, list, and customize browser profiles. However, compared to GoLogin, Mutlilogin offers less functionality through its API.

9. Use cases

There are various situations where GoLogin and Multilogin can be applied, yet we can sum up the main use cases into four categories for both tools:

  • Multi-account management. This involves use cases where users can manage multiple accounts with ease and without detection for social media, e-commerce, advertising, and other scenarios.

  • Online research. Any use case that requires looking up information on the web without blocks can easily fall under this category. Think ads monitoring, talent acquisition, travel fare aggregation, and etc.

  • Web scraping. Anti-detect browsers can also be paired up with a dedicated web scraping tool to help it stay undetected.

  • Privacy. Whether it’s for business or personal needs, anti-detect browsers are a great choice for anonymous and non-trackable web surfing.

10. Reputation and reviews

GoLogin

Overall, the positive reviews emphasize GoLogin for its user-friendly interface, efficient multi-profile management, and helpful customer support. On the other hand, the negative reviews highlight issues with duplicate payments, updates that break the software, and slow customer support.

Multilogin

Most of the positive feedback underlines Multilogin’s cloud capabilities, feature-richness, and responsive customer support. When it comes to the negatives, users report application crashes, downtimes, unsatisfactory software updates, and billing challenges.
