What is in a profile and how you can use it like a pro?

Kameleo is useful to hide your real browser fingerprint. It is like a sandbox environment for your browsers. There will be occasions when you want to use the same browser fingerprint multiple times. Imagine that you want to create more accounts on one website. You will need different digital fingerprints for them, but you will need to reload them every time you want to use the required virtual account. This way websites won't flag you because, for example, you have different locations every time you log in to your account. Profiles are meant to solve this problem.

Every time you make a new profile in Kameleo there is a chance to save the profile to a .kameleo file. It will save every setup of the browser fingerprint and also your

  • cookies,
  • browsing history,
  • add-ons,
  • bookmarks.

This way it will be more convenient for you. Once you load your profile you will already be logged into the sites that you already visited.

Don’t be afraid, these data will be stored locally on your computer in the .kameleo profile file.

Save a profile

When you finished working on your virtual browser profile, you can simply save a profile by clicking Save from the profile's context menu.

You can also enable profile autosaving in the Global Application Settings. So once the browser is closed, the .kameleo profile file will be updated.

Open a profile

Later, when you need to work on a previously saved profile you can simply reload it.

From the Dashboard select “Open profile” to load your profile.

Auto loaded profiles

When you open Kameleo v2 your previously saved profiles should be loaded to the dashboard. Please note that this only works if the .kameleo file locations are not changing. Once you move one of your .kameleo files to another directory Kameleo won't wind it automatically.

Share profiles

Once you saved a profile to a .kameleo file you can share it with any of your colleges. They can simply load the .kameleo file on their computer and continue browsing with the virtual accounts created by you.

Store profiles offline or online

Basically, Kameleo is saving the profiles to .kameleo file locally to your computer. This is the safest way, so your data is not going online. Still, a couple of members of our community wanted to share the profiles with their team members. A best practice for them is to save the profiles to a shared folder. Most of the cloud storages (like dropbox, google drive, mega) offer a solution when a folder on your machine is synced automatically to the cloud. Feel free to save the .kameleo profiles to the synced folder.

 

A profile also contains notes and attachments. Read an article about it.
