Have you ever wondered why your precious accounts got banned after so much time invested in setting them up and so much money wasted on the most quality proxies and VPN services out there? It is taken as read that affiliates very often must fly under the radar. The question is, how come so many anonymization tools today have little or no effect on enhancing the security of your affiliate campaign?
Outdated Tools of Anonymization
In this day and age, changing your IP and encrypting your traffic on their own can only help you “securely” access a couple of websites blocked in your country for one reason or another. Want to bypass Google or Facebook’s security systems? Well, better to come up with something more impressive than just jumping from one country to another.
In fact, not only do big IT corporations give one a tough time today when running multiple accounts but lots of pygmy startups as well. The tech industry is developing at a dramatically fast pace, and a technology considered to be pioneering yesterday could be an old hat tomorrow. The vast majority of today’s websites don't just detect you by your IP. They parse your entire digital fingerprints you leave just about everywhere while browsing the Internet.
What Is a Digital Fingerprint?
A digital fingerprint or device fingerprint in many regards resembles a regular human fingerprint. It conveys specific data your PC or smartphone comprises. But unlike human fingerprints, this type of information is not biological but digital. In other words, you get detected and identified on the Internet as a user, not as a human being. And that device fingerprint is a direct link to your so-called digital identity, which stands for you as an Internet user.
How is your digital fingerprint molded, though? Imagine you’re running Windows 10 on a 64-bit PC that has 16GB of RAM, and you’re trying to google something out by the Edge browser. Many websites will get all that data — all of it! And unfortunately, this is just a very tiny bit of the information you're giving to them when opening their pages.
Apart from your OS, browser, and hardware, they also detect you through your language settings, platform, screen resolution, fonts, and plugins. What’s more, they also learn everything about your media devices, canvas, WebRTC, and many other tech things, of which you haven’t even heard! Ultimately, your IP address turns out to be the mere tip of the iceberg by which websites unveil you. Luckily, there’s a solution for that — anti-detect browsers.
How Does an Anti-Detect Browser work?
This anonymization tool goes way beyond what, for instance, proxies and VPN services do. Anti-detect browsers don’t just help you spoof your location and a few system configurations, but they emulate a brand new device and, by extension of it, digital identity. Despite some security systems being able to uncover you via behavioral patterns, things become much easier and more secure with anti-detect browsers if you’re running businesses based on multi-accounting.
Now let’s have a look at how this groundbreaking technology works. We take GoLogin as an example, as it’s one of the most edge-cutting representatives of this industry that at the same time has quite friendly pricing.
On the right, you see a column listing all the configurations GoLogin imitates. You can adjust every single setting to your needs and even integrate third-party proxy servers. With your IP address changed, it will “create” a new device accessed from a different location. Thus, websites will take you as another person. They won’t get suspicious about any accounts created via emulated devices, as GoLogin’s fingerprints look exactly like real ones and have no links between them.
What's more, 9 times out of 10, you don’t even have to bother about tinkering around all those settings. Why? The anti-detect browser’s system generates device fingerprints that are optimized for websites by default: even for Amazon, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Shopify, Pinterest, and many other popular platforms.
Just create a profile, set up a proxy — and you’re mostly ready to go! It’s as simple as that! And since there are no limits to how many digital fingerprints you can mimic other than the ones set by the tariff you bought, you can invite an entire team and work together, sharing profiles with each other.
How Can I Check It’s Legit?
Some of you might be in doubt as to how sufficient such apps are. First off, some companies provide you with free trials, during which you can check everything by yourself. For instance, the browser mentioned above allows you to use the software for 7 days free of charge.
Another way to scrutinize these tools is to check their emulated machines on fingerprint checkers and see if there’s any leakage. You can use any checker for that, such as iphey.com, whoer.net, or browserleaks.com. But as of now, the most advanced one among them all is iphey.com, so we recommend that you test everything using their system. You can first check your real device fingerprint and then anti-detect browsers’ ones to see if they are different.
Although one could certainly still get there by deploying remote desktops, VPN services, and other “stealth” technologies, the convenience anti-detect browsers offer is merely unsurpassable. All you have to do is install it, create a few machine devices, and that’s it. Needless to say, the costs will be significantly lower, compared to what you would spend on other workarounds.
