Incogniton stands out as a widely used anti-detect browser choice. Like its counterparts, it lets users create and manage individual browser profiles. Each profile has a unique fingerprint and proxy settings.

At anyIP, we provide mobile and residential proxies around the world. Our high-quality proxies allow our clients to use them for many purposes, including scraping data, managing social accounts, and online activities. Years of experience in the field give us the know-how to exceed client expectations consistently.

This tutorial will help you integrate an anyIP.io proxy easily into Incogniton.

💡 To follow this guide, you will need:

  • An Incogniton account.
  • Incogniton desktop application installed on your computer.
  • Your anyIP.io proxy credentials
    • username/password;
    • proxy server addresses (IP + port);

How to create and use a profile in Incogniton

Incogniton has a well-designed form for creating a new profile. There are many optional features, but it's a simple process that feels natural.

Try it yourself by following this guide.

Step 1: create a new profile

This screenshot shows how to access the profile creation form on the Incogniton desktop app.
  1. Click on “New profile” to open the creation form.

Step 2: Choose a profile name

  2. Click on “Add proxy” to configure the proxy.

Step 3: Configure the proxy

The most important step! Adding the proxy!

This screenshot shows the proxy form on the Incogniton desktop application.
  1. Select the protocol you want to use. Incogniton is compatible with HTTP, SOCKS4, and SOCKS5 proxy.
  2. Enter your host and port information. For our example, we use the host of anyIP.io:
  3. Enter your username.
  4. Then, you can type your password.
  5. After reviewing your credentials, click on “Check proxy” to check the proxy connection.

When your proxy is working well, Incogniton will automatically display the details like:

  • IP
  • GMT offset
  • Country name and code
  • Timezone/timecode
  • Latitude and Longitude

It’s very useful to quickly check if you have the right proxy configuration.

💡 Incogniton allows you to paste a proxy configuration from your clipboard. To do so, the format must be:

PLAIN
URL:PORT:USERNAME:PASSWORD
PLAIN
portal.anyip.io:1080:user_XXX,type_residential,country_CA,session_XXXX:SecretPass

Step 4: save your profile

The last step is also the most obvious, but we need to save this profile.

This screenshot shows how to save a profile on the Incogniton desktop application.
  1. After checking your proxy, you can click "Create profile" to save it.

💡 If your proxy is not connecting, please double-check your credentials and proxy information.

Once the form is validated, you should see your new profile on your dashboard as follows:

If you click on the profile line, Incogniton will display a few information below. Perfect to have a quick look of your profile settings.

Step 5: Start and stop the profile

Now that our profile is ready, all we need is to launch it.

How to manage your proxies

In my opinion, one of the most important feature for an anti-detect browser is the proxy management. Incogniton have a dedicated dashboard that ease the creation, edition and test of all of your proxies.

Click on “Proxy Management” to access the proxy management dashboard.

From this dashboard, you can easily:

  • create a single proxy or bulk;
  • edit or delete a setting;
  • quickly recheck all your proxy connections;

  3. Enter the host:port for your proxy. Here: portal.anyip.io:1080
  4. Enter your username/password.
  5. Click on the “>>” button to add a proxy to the pre-saved list.
  6. You can see the list and that I already pre-saved one proxy for the example “anyIP - Thailand”.
  7. Once you’ve added all your proxies one by one, you can click “Save proxies” to save them all.

  1. Click on “Create Bulk” to open the bulk creation form.

💡 Incogniton allows you to add bulk proxies using different formats/files type.

You can use :
  • the Standard proxy format, the one we used during this guide (URL:PORT:USERNAME:PASSWORD);
  • a CSV format that you can customize with different headers;
  • a CSV file also customizable;
  • an excel file;
  1. Click on “Standard proxy format.”
  2. Select the proxy type you want to add. You can choose between HTTP, SOCKS4, or SOCKS5.

Incogniton uses a basic UI to make it easy for the user to manage their profile. Editing a proxy is a very simple process.

This screenshot shows how to edit a proxy settings on Incogniton desktop application.
  1. Click the “triple dot” button next to the proxy you want to edit.
  2. Click on “Edit proxy” to open the update form.
You can now edit the proxy settings, such as:
  • The connection type;
  • The name;
  • Proxy host and port;
  • Username and password;
  • and many other optional information;
You can also check if the proxy is connecting by clicking on “Check proxy.”
After you've updated all the needed info, click "Update" to save.

Delete a proxy

You can delete a proxy using the “triple dot” button on each proxy line. But, you can also remove many proxies at once like this:

  1. Click on the “triple dot” button to open a contextual menu.
  2. Click on “Proxy”.
  3. Then click on “Recheck proxy” to force a proxy check.

How to verify your online fingerprint

One of the best reasons to use an anti-detect browser is the ability to use a random fingerprint setting. But how can you be certain that your fingerprint is trustworthy?

Head to iphey.com. This website will check each parameter of your fingerprint. It will display an error when it finds a problem.

This screenshot shows the website iphey.com using a browser profile on the Incogniton desktop.
  • Our browser looks as real as a “normal” browser.
  • Thanks to the proxy provided by anyIP.io, our location and IP address are legit.
  • Both our hardware and software don’t look suspicious.

You can now navigate without risking your data to leak.
