What is browser fingerprinting
- IP address
- The browser and its version you use: Chrome 59.0, Firefox 56.0.1
- Computer’s screen parameters (resolution, pixel depth, etc.)
- System language and timezone setup
- Installed plugins and add-ons
- Available fonts on your computer
Indeed there are billions of IT devices worldwide your device can be identified by these settings. It means you vainly change your IP address by connecting the web through VPN, a website will still know that you are the same person so you will have limitations for example on online account creations. Websites can connect all your online activities because of your browser fingerprint.
You may hear about privacy tools like browser extensions and tracking blockers, but unfortunately, they don’t work. The truth is that the more effort you take to avoid being tracked (e.g. using plugins for privacy protection), the more unique your browser fingerprint becomes. The fact that you are using these tools already makes you unique.
It is like wearing a black mask at a party. Your “face” is changed, your real anonymity will be hidden, but you will be very outstanding with your black mask. Everything you do will be suspicious. So websites will block you and won’t let you access their functions and your accounts
Did you know that websites even know whether you browse in incognito mode?
Doesn’t matter how you want to reach 100% privacy, websites will be able to connect each of your online sessions together. It means you have no privacy when you try to have multiple accounts on a site.
The solution is using Kameleo.
Stop browser fingerprinting
Kameleo can offer you everything you need to solve the above problem. You can surf the web anonymously and can have multiple profiles.
Kameleo prevents the leaking of your real browser fingerprint by changing it. If you install Kameleo the websites will see your fingerprint differently. You can create as many browser configurations as you want. Kameleo lets you browse with 100% privacy.
The websites won’t know the fact that you are using Kameleo unlike when you are using different privacy plugins.
- Using a plugin is like wearing a balaclava in a big crowd. This way you can be spotted easily.
- Using Kameleo is different, it’s like wearing someone else’s face. You won’t be spotted in the crowd and your personality cannot be recognized.
Kameleo beats popular fingerprinting technologies with perfect success:
- Best against Canvas fingerprinting technology
- WebRTC spoofing
- Change WebGL hash
- Blocking plugin leakage
- Changing fonts
- Forging user agent
- IP change by Proxy connection (read about it later)
- Spoof Mobile Profiles
Best browser fingerprinting tool
You may hear about other different tools and ways how to have privacy. Here is some information on why they don’t work with 100% efficiency, and why using Kameleo is better than anything else.
You may hear that using a VPN service can change your IP address. It is true, but it doesn’t solve the above problem. When you are using different networks (home wifi, public wifis) your IP is also changed, but the fingerprint remains unique. It is like a thumb fingerprint. Just because one little part is missing it is still unique. In our case, the IP is the missing part, just because you changed it you can still be traced. So when you register with an email provider with two different IPs they can still connect the two email addresses to you.
We would also like to mention the IP address quality. VPN networks’ IP addresses are listed in databases so the website will know that you are doing some trick. As Netflix can detect that you are using a VPN other websites can as well.
Plugins that blocks fingerprinting
These plugins don’t work well. They are created by script kiddies with a lack of experience, and they are not updated often. Also, they don’t focus on the whole browser fingerprint, only on just one part of it. You won’t be able to block all kinds of fingerprints, but just blocking one fingerprint puts you into a small group of users who are trying to prevent fingerprinting. This fact and other digital fingerprints of yours makes you unique, so websites will block you.
Using these technologies will limit you very soon because advanced websites will realize that you are trying to spoof your data.
Whonix, TOR, Qubes OS, Tails OS
Using these tools will often cause you to face Google Captchas and other annoying stuff like that. It will make your work slow and also other problems will happen. For example the fact that you are using the TOR network will be visible. With this information big websites like Facebook, eBay, Amazon won’t let you access your account.
Kameleo is modern
Our team of senior developers with experience of 10+ years in IT security are developing Kameleo since 2017. We are following the latest browser fingerprinting technologies and we are improving our software every day. This makes Kameleo superior to other tools.
Kameleo is integrating into your ordinary environment. It means you can use it on your Windows desktop with the browsers you already got used to:
Or you can use your mobile device to have Android and iOS profiles.
Kameleo is barely suspicious of modern websites, as the browser fingerprint stays consistent. Thanks to the natural-looking but spoofed browser fingerprint you won’t have to face Google reCAPTCHAs often (your configuration can affect it – read our article).
Who should use it?
The short answer is everybody. People are taking efforts to have privacy every day: using curtains, wearing swimsuits at the pool, keeping the social security number secretly, etc. As in the offline world, in the online world, you should have the privacy of your needs. Kameleo can provide it.
There some use-cases when Kameleo is very useful.
Marketing techniques are forming every day. One of the new hypes in social media marketing. It is required often that one person needs multiple accounts on one site for social media marketing. The new generation of websites is using machine learning algorithms and other technologies to prevent people register with multiple accounts. With Kameleo you can operate with as many accounts as you want. Read our article on Medium.
Automated clicks and navigation in the browser are also possible with Kameleo. It means you can save precious time with Kameleo. You can perform repeating tasks automatically by attaching to Selenium Stealth WebDriver. Read more about it in our article in our knowledge base.
Web App Developers
After you build your glory website you should test it in every aspect. For example, if your website is multilingual this is the time to test it with different language setups. It is the easiest to manage it with Kameleo. Test automation is also possible with Selenium Stealth WebDriver.
Web scraping is popular nowadays to collect important information from the web. Unfortunately, websites will stop you to collect data automatically. Basic web scraping technologies won’t work as effectively as Kameleo. Thanks to our browser fingerprint changing technology and the Selenium Stealth WebDriver you can scrape the web without borders.
Getting started with Kameleo
Kameleo is a desktop application that you can download from our website. Once you installed it successfully, you will need an active subscription that can be bought here. You can start using our platform instantly by logging in with the same email and password as you used during the checkout process. That’s all, now you are able to launch your favorite browser and Kameleo makes sure that you won’t leak your real browser fingerprint!
Our browser fingerprint spoofing technology is unique. We are generating browser configurations called Base Profiles. Currently, we have more than 1 million Base Profiles in our system. All of them were harvested with great care and were tested against modern website’s browser fingerprinting techniques. They contain consistent configuration so it won’t be suspicious for Artificial Intelligence software that is often used by modern websites. The number of Base Profiles is growing every day.
You can filter the base profiles by the following parameters:
- Device Type (Desktop or Mobile)
- System Language
- Operating system
- Browser product
Then you can fine-tune your profile if required so you can have an infinity number of configuration.
We recommend you to choose a language you speak, so the websites will appear in your language.
There is no limitation on the number of profiles you create.
Profiles – saving, loading
After you have finished work with your profile you can save it as a .kameleo file. A saved profile contains:
- Profile settings (all the parameters)
- Notes added to your profile
- Cookies & Local Storage Data that were generated during browsing
- Browser Extensions
- Browsing history
This is a very convenient way of managing multiple accounts. Simply create a profile for each of them. Once you load the .kameleo file back you will be logged into the websites and you can continue your work.
Simply sharing the .kameleo file with your team is also possible.
Kameleo supports browsing with proxies. There is a built-in proxy management tool in Kameleo. With that, you can simply connect to any type of proxy.
Import & Export Cookies
We have a built-in tool that you can use to import cookies to your profiles or export them from the profiles. This way you can integrate Kameleo into other environments. More info in our knowledgebase.
Automate tasks in the browser
It is possible to attach to the Selenium Stealth WebDriver so you can perform actions in the browser started by Kameleo. More info in our knowledgebase.
Browse with Mobile Profiles
Our unique technology lets you create a Mobile Device browser fingerprint configuration. You can browse the web with your mobile device or Android VM while you are connecting to socks proxy and changing your browser fingerprint.
