How to choose an anti-detect browser

Blog » How to choose an anti-detect browser

There are about 30 anti-detect browsers on the market today. Although all the available browsers usually do good with masking information about your browser and device, each has its features that can make your job easier or harder ⚡️.

To help you choose the most suitable option, below we will tell you:

  • what an anti-detect browser is,
  • what it is used for,
  • what to look for when choosing one. 

What is an anti-detect browser ❓

Each device that is used to access the Internet has a set of impersonal data: 

  • type and model of device, 
  • number of processor cores, 
  • amount of RAM, operating system, 
  • browser type and version, 
  • screen parameters, 
  • fonts, 
  • language, 
  • time zone, 
  • etc. 

The combination of these parameters forms a unique digital fingerprint, expressed as a numeric value:


Various websites capture the digital fingerprints of their visitors to identify, track and analyze users’ actions. This helps them stop violations of their site’s policies and fight user fraud. 

Example: A user has registered a Facebook account from his home laptop using the Google Chrome browser. If he tries to register 5 more accounts from the same laptop and browser, Facebook won’t let him do it: the social network’s security systems will understand that the same person is trying to create multiple accounts for unclear purposes. 

The anti-detect browser is a program that allows you to mask information about your browser and device by replacing your real digital fingerprint with the one you set up in the anti-detect browser. 

For example, instead of being a Mozilla Firefox user with a 14″ screen HP laptop, you can make yourself a digital fingerprint of an Asus laptop owner with a 15’6 screen that uses Chrome. 

Externally, the anti-detect browser is almost no different from a normal browser: you can visit various Internet resources, the only difference is that during the visit the information about your device and browser will be replaced by the ones you specified in the anti-detect. 

What are anti-detect browsers used for

Basically, anti-detect browsers are used for:

  • Affiliate marketing. An anti-detect browser helps you impersonate different users and fight traffic source restrictions on the number of accounts. For example, Facebook and Google strictly control the number of created accounts created and their behavior.
  • SMM and publishing reviews. You can open the same site in different tabs, but on behalf of different users. This greatly speeds up the work.
  • Multi-accounting – for those who work with betting and bookmakers. 
  • To bypass anti-fraud systems. By creating unique digital fingerprints, it is possible to impersonate a new user each time. 
  • Farming accounts for affiliate marketing, publishing reviews, etc.
  • Preservation of anonymity in the network.

But anti-detect browser alone is not enough to remain anonymous online or to impersonate a real user.

In addition to a digital fingerprint, security systems on various websites analyze many additional parameters to distinguish a real user from a fake one. 

Repetitive behavior patterns, for instance, may give a fake user away. This problem is often encountered by novice pharmacists — specialists who create and warm-up social network accounts so that the websites perceive these accounts as real users. 

Farmers buy proxies, set up anti-detect, but when creating and warming up the accounts they adhere to a repetitive pattern of behavior. Because of this, despite the disguise of their data, the algorithms of the traffic sources understand that the owner of the accounts is one person, and then easily block the entire chain of accounts. 

What to pay attention to when choosing an anti-detect browser

When choosing an anti-detect browser, you should pay attention to the following criteria: 

For whom the browser is intended

Some anti-detect browsers(antis) prescribe on their websites whom their product will suit best. This does not mean that it will not be suitable for users with other tasks: again, all anti-detects cope with data masking. Rather, it helps to understand that for a particular audience the browser’s functionality will be especially convenient.

For example, the Dolphin{anty} anti-detect browser was originally designed specifically for affiliates. Since the creators were engaged in affiliate marketing, they understand the needs of this audience, so their tool is certainly suitable for these tasks. Now, this anti-detect is also adapted to work with cryptocurrency: it even has a separate profile CRYPTO. 

In addition, the developers of anti-detects can prescribe which services their anti-detect works best with. This is because each internet resource has its algorithms for checking user data. As a result, one browser can perfectly mask the connection when working with PayPal, but fail to do so when working with Facebook.  

Example: Dolphin{anty} is suitable even for complex resources such as Google and Facebook, while AntBrowser indicates that it is suitable for Avito and SMM. 


In addition to basic tasks, each anti-detect browser may have additional distinctive features that set it apart from other programs. 

As a rule, you can find the key advantages on the main page of the anti-detects website:

User-friendly interface

Most anti-detect browsers have a free plan for 10 profiles. Before you buy a paid version, it is better to use a browser for a couple of days: it helps to understand how convenient a particular browser is for you. 

If you don’t have time to do that, you can at least watch reviews.

For example, Dolphin{anty} has an intuitive interface for creating a new profile: just click on the right fields and choose the data you want: 

Dolphin Anty create profile

You can attach tags to each profile, which will help speed up the search for the right accounts: 

Settings profile Dolphin Anty

Number of profiles

Most anti-detect browser developers have a prescription for how many profiles they are willing to provide for a certain amount of money. The more profiles you need, the higher the price will be. 

At the same time, if there are no restrictions on profiles, the browser may not be as convenient and may not be suitable for all tasks. 

Example: AntBrowser does not yet allow you to work in multiple profiles at the same time, so previously opened tabs will reload when you switch between profiles. If you have to work with several profiles at the same time, this can significantly slow down your work.

The number of profiles you need depends on:

  • For what kind of tasks do you require profiles. For example, a full-time marketer in a small company might need only 10 profiles, but an affiliate who regularly has to deal with bans of Facebook accounts might need hundreds of accounts.
  • Whether you will be working solo or as part of a team.

If you realize you don’t have enough profiles at your chosen rate, some anti-detect browsers will allow you to buy profiles without waiting for the end of the subscription or switching plans. 

For example, in Dolphin{anty} it looks like this:  

Dolphin Anty pricing


The price range for the anti-detect browsers is wide and depends on many parameters: 

  • functionality, 
  • the tasks for which the anti-detect is suitable,
  • the number of available profiles in the rate,
  • the number of unique parameters for the fingerprint,
  • frequency of updates to current versions of common browsers,
  • etc. 

For example, the cheapest Indigo browser plan costs $100 per month and has a limit of 100 profiles. The Dolphin{anty} browser has not only a free plan of 10 profiles. Moreover, at all Dolphin{anty} rates, you can buy extra profiles.

Support service

Often users don’t pay much attention to this point when evaluating anti-detects, although it is important especially in the beginning, while you adapt to the interface.

It is worth paying attention to:

  • the quality of the support,
  • the speed of responses,
  • the way you contact them. For some users, it is significant to have the option to contact the support team not only by some browser chat or email but also by messengers. 

In addition, you should pay attention to the reviews of browsers and user reviews 😉.
