AdsPower is probably one of the most popular antidetect browsers on the market, and the reason why is quite simple:

AdsPower offers a wide choice of protocols for connecting a proxy and the option to select which browser you want to use for your profile between Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. But trust me, this is only a glimpse of what AdsPower can do.

Follow this guide and see for yourself. In less than 15 minutes, you’ll have your profile ready to go!

We’ll cover the main feature of AdsPower:

  • Creating and managing a browser profile;
  • Creating and managing your proxies’ profiles;
  • Test the proxy;
  • Verify the fingerprint integrity of your profile;

💡 If you read our other article, you know that you need a few requirements to follow our guide:

  • An AdsPower account
  • AdsPower installed on your computer
  • Your proxy credentials (you can quickly create an account here):
  • Your proxy credentials:
    • username/password;
    • proxy server infos (URL or IP + port) ;

With no further ado, let's jump right into the guide!

How to manage your browser profile on AdsPower

Step 1: How to create a new browser profile

Open the “New profile” form

  1. Lets open profile creation form by clicking on the “+ New profile” button (1)

The creation form can be a little bit intimidating, but fear no more as we will explain everything!

  1. Lets start with the name. To easily find your profile, for this example we named it ”anyIP.io - Canada”
  1. Also to help you manage your different profiles, you can create groups:

  1. Again to help you organise your profiles, you can add tags to them:

  1. Now a great feature that I like on AdsPower, is the option to select the browser you want to use:

💡 You can select the version of each browser you want to use:

AdsPower will give you the option to download the version very easily

  1. Choose the OS and User agent

💡 Pro tips:

  • You should always select the same OS as your computer OS;
  • Your User Agent must match the browser you want to use;
  1. Now the best part, we need to configure the proxy. Scroll down to find the proxy section (6)

Select “Custom” (1) and Choose the protocol (2) you want to use (for this guide we went for “SOCKS5”)

Once you’ve selected the Proxy type (protocol), AdsPower will display the proxy from.

Nothing fancy here, only the basic field which is perfect. Fill out the form with your proxy credentials:

  • Host & Port: portal.anyip.io : 1080
  • Proxy username: copy/paste your username
  • Proxy password: copy/paste your password

💡 You can clic on “Check Proxy” button to test the connection

A confirmation will pop out, you’ll be redirect to the “Profiles” view and you see you profile.

Step 2: How to use your profile

Open the browser

No brainer here, you’ll see a “Open” button associate to your profile. Click on it to launch the dedicated browser.

💡 AdsPower launches a new instance each time you open a profile and you get a icon on your dock/toolbar

The number you see match the ID of your profile, this making it easy to spot.

A nice touch from AdsPower is to display a recap of your profile when open it. It will look like this and you’ll quickly see all the informations of your profile

This screenshot shows the start page on the AdsPower desktop app
  1. On the first section you can all the informations you choose when creating the profile
  2. On the second section, you’ll see the browser fingerprint

Control the fingerprint

One of the main reason to use a antidetect browser is to trick the website your want to visit.

In order to do so, the anti browser generate a fake fingerprint. AdsPower add few shortcut that are really useful. Especially one that will allows you to control the authenticity of your fingerprint. Click on the "BrowserScan” link or visit direct https://www.browserscan.net/ to open the online scan.

Edit your profile

To edit or update your profile you can clic on the triple dot button associate to your profile.

This screenshot shows how to access the contextual menu of a profile on the AdsPower desktop app.

From there, you’ll be able to quickly edit or delete the profile or simply update your proxy information.

How to manage your proxies on AdsPower

We just configured a profile using a proxy, but what if you have multiple account?

AdsPower offer a dedicated proxy management to make your life easier.

Single or batch proxies creation

This screenshot shows how to access the proxies list view on the AdsPower desktop app.
  1. Click on “Proxies” on the left menu to open the proxies management
  2. Then click on “Add proxy”  to open the proxy form

If you’re familiar with Dolphin Anty you will most likely find few similarities on this form.

This screenshot shows how to add batch proxies on the AdsPower desktop app.
  1. You can copy/paste here a batch of proxies
  2. After copy/pasting the proxies, you can double-check them on the list
  3. And you can quickly test them by clicking on “check proxy”
  4. Once you’re done, click on “OK” to save your proxies.

💡 AdsPower allowed formats:

This screenshot shows the different proxy formats allowed by AdsPower.
AdsPower allows multiple formats to add a proxy. You can check on our previous screenshot to see few examples.
Since we like to make your life easier as well, anyIP.io automatically generates a compatible format.
You can copy/paste it on AdsPower without issue.
This is the format anyIP.io uses:
PLAIN
portal.anyip.io:1080:USERNAME:PASSWORD
AdsPower allows you to easily add a “remark” to your proxy by adding it at the end of each line, like this:
PLAIN
portal.anyip.io:1080:USERNAME:PASSWORD{My proxy Name}
You can also specify the protocols you want to use for each proxies:
PLAIN
socks5://portal.anyip.io:1080:USERNAME:PASSWORD{My proxy Name}

Proxy list view

The proxies list view allows you to easy manage your proxies profiles.

This screenshot shows the proxies list view on the AdsPower desktop app.
  1. You can see all the proxies you’ve configured
  2. You can check the proxy one by one or by check them all
  3. When you click on the tree dot button associate to a proxy you’ll have the option to update or delete this proxy.

API and Advanced features

As we told you earlier, AdsPower is as simple as powerful to use, and a great antidetect browser.

Unfortunately, if you want to have access to the full package, you’ll have to subscribe to a custom plan (Don’t worry, the free plan is free for a lifetime and can suit most of use case 😉).

This screenshot shows the pricing list of AdsPower

The paid version comes with a lot of benefits and premium features, such as:

  • Enhance profile management options;
  • Better automation tools;
  • A deep control of your team members;

But one of the main reason you could choose to upgrade is the permission to use the API which can be very useful if you want to control AdsPower through your scripts.
