Features of Octo Browser

Secure Profiles

A profile refers to a unique device that incorporates a collection of fingerprints that are collected from other real devices. In simple words, a profile includes all the information about the browser settings and uses it to launch the browser with those permissions.

You can create a new profile using two methods; namely, Quick Profile and Create Profile. Let us discuss them in detail.

Quick Profile

  1. Before using this method, select the suitable OS for your profile.
  1. Now, click on the Quick Profile button.
  1. A profile will be created with a random name, icon, and settings. You can modify these parameters according to your preference afterwards.

New Profile

If you wish to create a new profile by setting all the parameters manually according to your custom preferences, then this method will cater to all your needs. 

First, you need to click on the Create Profile button.

After that, you will get several browser setting parameters that you can alter. Let us discuss everything in detail.

Basic 

Here you can add the profile name displayed on the list. If you have any additional information, you can add it to the profile description. You can add a pre-installed icon or upload a unique one for your profile. 

Besides this, you can select the OS, and the fingerprint of the profile will depend on the preferred OS. You can also assign tags to the profiles for filters. The number of tags and icons depends on the subscription plan.

General

There are several parameters here. Let us understand them in detail.

  1. User Agent

It acts as an application identifier for the client device. It contains all the information about the OS, browser version, and spoofed device.

  1. Screen Resolution

Screen resolution will set the profile window’s viewing area when you launch it. The maximum value you can set for this parameter will depend on your system resolution. This parameter does not affect the integrity of the print.

  1. Fonts

The selection depends on the choice of your OS. We recommend not changing the parameter unless it is vital.

  1. Languages

It is the substitution of profile languages of the browser. When the profile is launched in the default mode, the external IP address is checked, and languages are set according to your IP. This process works correctly in most cases. We do not recommend setting the Real value for this option.

  1. Timezone

The time zone is set automatically every time you launch the profile. It corresponds to the geo IP addresses, and you can change it manually. It is the substitution of the used time zone for your browser’s profile.

  1. Geolocation

Like Timezone and Languages, GeoLocation is also the location substitution of the browser profile. The location will be set according to the geo IP address. The parameter is randomly set with the values of latitude and longitude that correspond to the radius of a pre-defined geo.

When you visit any site that asks for your location, it will not get any data if you don’t grant permission through the browser.

Hardware

Here you can change the number of CPU cores for the profile and the RAM allocation value according to your preference.

In the Renderer field, you will get details of the video card corresponding to the fingerprint of a real user device.

The Hardware Noise refers to the software deviations that occur automatically from the system values. It is used to create a unique fingerprint of a particular browser profile.

If you wish to hide the parameters of your browser fingerprint, enable this option. If you want to blend with the crowd, disable this option. We recommend not changing the values of the parameter unless absolutely necessary, as some of the services will have a sensitive reaction to the noises.

Media devices tell about the emulation of multimedia devices connected to your device while working with a certain profile.

Connection

You can alter the proxy, URL, WebRTC, and DNS parameters here. You can add the proxy from the temporary proxy or proxy manager list in the proxy field.

For the quick filling of the data, you can add the proxy data in two formats given below.

  • ip:port:login:password
  • protocol://login:password:ip:port
Cookies

You can drag and drop files into the field to add cookies. The browser supports Netscape and JSON file formats.

Storages

In this tab there are several options that you can enable or disable according to your preference. You can modify Cookies, Passwords, Extensions, History, and Bookmarks. The Local Storage saves the indexed database data.

You can enable the Service Workers option to save data from some sites for offline work. We recommend not enabling this option as it can raise the weight and size of the profile.

Extensions

Here you can see all the extensions on the list. However, to display all extensions here, you have to enable the extension option in the Storages tab, run the profile, and install your necessary plugins.

Once all the extensions are installed, you will see them here. The list is available for all devices and team members.

Randomize

The button is available on all tabs. You can change the fingerprint of the selected profile with this option. It changes the general and hardware data, but the connection and master data stay the same.

Tags

A profile can have no tags or several tags in Octo Browser. Tags act like folders. So, a profile can exist in two or more folders simultaneously.

Creating and Assigning Tags

There are two ways to create tags and assign them.

While creating a new profile
  1. Here you can click on the Edit Tags option in the Basic tab.

  2. Now press the Spoof capture option. You can also use the Ctrl+Shift+L combination.

Human Typing Simulation

Imitating on manual text input is another method to reduce suspicions of antifraud systems of different online services. While managing multiple online accounts, you have to fill the fields quickly. This feature will reduce your hassle and save you time too.

With Octo Browser, you can copy the content to your clipboard and paste it in the required field by selecting the option “Type text from clipboard.” The speed of typing the text will be chosen randomly. 

All about Proxy Management

The proxy manager provides you with the list of all proxies. You can add or create a new proxy by clicking the Add Proxy button. 

Now fill in the necessary details and add the proxy.

You can easily assign a proxy to any team member using the proxy manager. It acts as a single base of operations to perform all the actions.

All the proxies are divided by type. The browser supports all the protocols like ssh, HTTP/HTTPS, socks5. There are also temporary proxies that you can add in the Connection settings of the profile. These temporary ones are not available in the list of the Proxy manager. However, you can save them if you want to use them in the future.

Bulk Adding 

You can add many proxies together at once using this option. Click on the Bulk Add option in the Proxy Manager and add them in the following format:

You can add a prefix name to filter the list quickly. The proxies will be displayed in the format “name#number.” For example, you can add a prefix based on a country like the UK. Then all the proxies will have a title name starting with UK#1, UK#2, etc.

Templates

In the new window, add specific details under each section.
