Back in 2016, our Chromium and Firefox browsers rigged with a special fingerprint management extension were ground-breaking products. However, the world changes, technologies evolve and we follow along. Newly emerged user identification technologies exploited vulnerabilities in Chromium and Firefox browsers that were impossible to patch on a browser extension level. This is why we started directly modifying browser source code building new privacy browsers – Stealthfox and Mimic.

Now the gap between our new and old browsers became too big. Likewise, old browsers accumulated a whole set of issues that is impossible to fix due to architectural limitations. The only fix can be made through source code modification which brings us back to Stealthfox and Mimic.

Well, seems like it’s time to say “Good bye!” to Chromium and Firefox in Multilogin. We won’t further develop them for the sole reason: it’s impossible.

However, we know that a lot of you still rely on those browsers and we don’t want to hurt your work processes in any way. This is why we took a great care to prepare a migration plan which you can find here below. To save up your time, please find a category you belong to and read how the migration will affect you specifically.

FREE USERS

  • You won’t be able to create new Chromium/Firefox browser profiles after May 23rd
  • You will be able to use Chromium/Firefox browser profiles created before May 23rd
  • You will be able to create Mimic and Stealthfox browser profiles with limitations of the Free plan (read below)
  • These new rules will activate starting from version 2.1.3

Stealthfox and Mimic are our premium browser profile that so far were only available to paid users. Now we add it to the free plan with the following limitations:

  • Resource-intensive features Local Storage and Extension Storage won’t be available. This means browser extensions cannot be installed.
  • Free and Paid users receive browser fingerprints from separate databases. Free database has less fingerprints and is being updated with a delay
  • Free users won’t be able to adjust the number of media devices in the browser profile configuration (Media devices hash altering will still work)
  • Free users won’t be able to manually edit some fields related to Navigator and WebGL configuration
  • Free users won’t be able to share or transfer browser profiles to other users (still can receive a browser profile from a paid account through sharing)

Besides, we add two additional premium features to the Free plan:

  • Proxy over SSH plugin
  • Multiproxy plugin (domain-based proxy utilization within a single session)

PAID USERS

BASIC PLAN

  • You will be able to create new Chromium/Firefox browser profiles after May 23rd
  • You will be able to use Chromium/Firefox browser profiles created before and after May 23rd
  • You will see a notification with a link to this announcement when creating new Chromium/Firefox browser profiles

We honor the right of users with Basic subscription to continue using what they paid for. However, we strongly advise upgrading to one of our plans that include Mimic and Stealthfox browsers.

ALL OTHER PAID PLANS

If you purchased a paid plan BEFORE May 23rd…

  • You will be able to create new Chromium/Firefox browser profiles after May 23rd
  • You will be able to use Chromium/Firefox browser profiles created before and after May 23rd
  • You will see a notification with a link to this announcement when creating new Chromium/Firefox browser profiles

We strongly advise migrating your work processes to either Stealthfox or Mimic browser.

If you purchased a paid plan AFTER May 23rd…

  • Congratulations, there’s nothing to worry about! Start experiencing Multilogin from using our modern browsers Stealthfox and Mimic that provide the best level of protection from browser fingerprinting

What will happen to existing Chromium/Firefox browser profiles?

We will continue supporting all existing and newly created Chromium/Firefox browser profiles as long as they are being used. They won’t be further developed but will continue working in their existing state. We will continue recommending everyone to convert Chromium/Firefox browser profiles to Mimic/Stealthfox.

Can I transfer Mimic/Stealthfox browser profiles from a paid to the Free plan?

Free and paid subscriptions receive browser fingerprints from separate databases and have a different data model. A Mimic/Stealthfox profile once created on a paid plan is impossible to launch on the Free plan. If we allowed that, it would require reducing the amount of stored data which may have lead to unwanted consequences.

However, a profile created on the Free plan can be opened on a paid plan since paid plans are backward compatible with the data model used in the Free plan.

What happened to Startup Regular and Business Regular plans?

We deprecated them. If you already purchased one, you may continue using it. However, we do not offer them anymore. Our new vision is that every subscription plan should include both privacy browsers: Mimic and Stealthfox. If you wish to upgrade from your Regular to any of Premium plans that include Mimic browser, let us know.
