With Octo Browser, you can create multiple instances (profiles) on a single device, each with a unique browser fingerprint. The number of instances is only limited by the resources of your machine.
To ensure an interruption-free browsing experience, proxies are a must. Oxylabs Residential and Datacenter Proxies paired with Octo Browser allow you to handle multiple accounts for any platform or service.
Proxies provide enhanced security and anonymity by routing your requests through an additional layer between you and the server. The result is a temporary virtual identity that ensures the evasion of IP bans.
What is Octo Browser?
Octo is an antidetect browser, a web browser that prevents online tracking and protects user’s privacy. Rotating IP addresses and customizing user agents along with browser fingerprints, to name a few, hinder server-side data collection. This way, you can use Octo for multi-accounting, API automation, fingerprint management, and more.
To set up Oxylabs proxies, follow the steps below.
1. Download and install Octo Browser, set up an account, and log in.
In Octo Browser, the proxy configuration is separate from browser profiles. This way, you can set up, add, and remove multiple proxies and then pair them with different profiles.
2. Navigate to Proxies > Add Proxy and add proxy details.
To configure Oxylabs proxies, add the following details.
You can also use country-specific entries. For example, entering ca-pr.oxylabs.io under Host and 30000 under Port will acquire a Canadian exit node. Please refer to our documentation for a complete list of country-specific entry nodes or if you need a sticky session.
Residential Proxies configuration
Type: HTTP or SOCKS5 (according to your purchase)
Host: a specific IP address (e.g., 220.127.116.11)
In the case of Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, you will have to choose an IP address from the acquired list. Please refer to our documentation for more details.
You can also use a country-specific entry. For example, entering dc.fr-pr.oxylabs.io under Host and 42000 under Port will acquire a French exit node. Please refer to our documentation for a complete list of country-specific entry nodes.
NOTE: don't forget to Check Proxy to make sure it functions as expected. You should see a country flag indicating the location.
3. Enter your Oxylabs proxy user’s credentials. Use the same credentials you entered to create a new proxy user in the Oxylabs dashboard.
You can add as many proxies as you like and pair or unpair them with different profiles.
Managing proxy configurations
4. Go to Profiles > Create Profile and set up a new profile.
