A browser cookie is a small amount of information that a website sends to a user's computer. The file is stored there while the user searches for something on the Internet. One of the primary purposes of storing cookies is to authenticate the user. Importing cookies into Gologin allows you to add them from your default browser.

You must first get cookies from browser. The Gologin browser supports JSON or Netscape format as well as text format. One of the browser add-ons is available. If you want cookie removal for your browser, there are many free options available online. In this article, we will list a few good and free extensions. You will get a text or JSON file that Gologin supports.

HTTP cookies and browser cookies are two different types of data storage files. They are used to store user data. Using Gologin's "Import Cookies" feature, you can add cookies from your primary browser into your Mimic or Stealthfox browser profile.

To import cookies into Gologin, please do the following:

  • Click on the three dots to the right of the "Run" button and select "Cookies".

  • While creating a new profile, go to the "Cookies" section and click "Cookie Import".

The following window will pop up, in which you can add the cookies.

There are two ways how to import cookies:

  1. The first is text. You have to copy the file as text from the extension and paste it into the appropriate field. Then just click import. Your cookies are now updated.

  2. The second way is to add cookies by downloading the file.

Note that existing cookies will be deleted and overwritten if you add another set of cookies from the same site.
