Mobile profiles – Change browser fingerprint on Android

  • Created

Kameleo makes it possible to run multiple browsers in a sandboxed environment on your PC. But what about your phone?

Please note that currently mobile's camera and microphone functionality are not available in the Kameleo application!

About Kameleo mobile profiles

Kameleo lets you browse with mobile profiles on a real Android device or on an Android Virtual Machine (VM). This is necessary because in a desktop environment you cannot have the typical touch events and gestures that we have on Kameleo Mobile Browser, so fingerprint detection algorithms will detect other tools.

Kameleo mobile app is compatible with Android 5.0 (API level 21) and the above versions. You will need 15 MB of free space. Root access will not be required to run our app.

During the installation, your phone may alert you: For security, your phone is not allowed to install unknown apps from this source. You have to enable the installation from the settings to be able to install apps downloaded not from Google Play.

Kameleo can be installed to x86 Android VM, BlueStacks5 or Genymotion Emulator as well.

How to start a mobile profile?

When you are about to start a new profile, simply filter to Mobile in the Device Type field or Android/iOS on the OS field.

After you selected your filter preferences, you will see a list of base profiles like in the case of Kameleo Desktop profiles. Simply select a base profile from the list. You will be able to configure the details later.

You can also set up a proxy in the built-in proxy manager.

The External Spoofing Engine is running on your desktop computer where Kameleo runs. You can start as many Mobile Profiles as you want. All of them for different profiles. Then you can connect to them with your phone(s).

How to connect the mobile to the External Spoofing Engine?

Once the External Spoofing Engine is started on your desktop computer you will be able to connect to it with your Android Mobile device through the Kameleo app.

Important! In order to be able to connect to the External Spoofing Engine, you will have to access the same private network with your mobile as your desktop computer. If you are connected to the same Wi-Fi it will be easy.

Open the Kameleo Android Application and use the Connect with QR Code button or insert the connection details manually. For manual connection, you may have to try all the different private IPs of your host computer since most likely only one of them will match with the network that your mobile device is connected to.

Your desktop computer’s Firewall rules can block the mobile app to connect to the External Spoofing Engine.

Once you are connected you can browse with perfect anonymity.

  • Your IP will be changed if you are using a VPN or a Proxy on the desktop machine.
  • Your browser fingerprint is changed to a mobile device’s fingerprint configuration.
  • Your behavior will also be like a mobile device’s behavior. All the touch events and gestures will occur, so you won’t be suspicious.
