Any browser gathers data that accommodates the information about the users and their preferences. The data includes the following, but not limited to:

  • browser history;

  • browser settings;

  • cookies;

  • extensions;

  • local storage and indexedDB data;

  • recently closed tabs;

  • saved bookmarks.

Storing and synchronizing data in GoLogin browser profiles is placed in encrypted servers. There are several data containers that allow to increase the latency to load and save browser profiles. Therefore, synchronizing tabs and cookies is allowed in default settings. There are other storage containers that are enabled via manual configuration at the storage options.

Users are recommended to allow only storage options which they want to use in optimizing loading sessions.

GoLogin supports local storage, indexedDB, and extension data as additional options for storage.

Local Storage and IndexedDB

Users can see a small difference between the structures of local storage and indexedDB. However, both functions have a similar goal, which is to enable websites to store local data about the user. The features have the same process as cookies. Yet, both local and indexedDB storage provide more security and a larger data capacity without affecting the website performance.

A website has an open access on local and indexedDB storage. Therefore, it may easily exploit the saved data to track users through their identifiable information about the user’s activity through their cookies.

By using GoLogin, there are options allowing synchronizing local and indexedDB storage for browser profiles.

Local and indexedDB storages suggest to enable data consistency through preservation in a website. If a user disables the option, website can identify the storage data as empty on every browsers launched consecutively. It should indicate that the storage is cleared out intentionally.

Extension Storage

Extension and the data are placed in storage that is in another container from other kinds of data. Therefore, if the users want to use an extension, it is best for them to restore the data at each browser profile. However, before doing, the user needs to allow the option for extension storage.

Use Add-On and Extension

The extension storage will enable users to use integration and add-on features to offer convenience in using browser profiles. There are easy steps to follow to enable using an extension and add-on:

  • Create a browser profile and allow extension storage

  • Run this profile.

  • Find and download a needed extension.

  • Install the extension.

  • Close the profile.

  • Re-run the profile to examine if extensions are saved.

Moreover, users need to keep in mind that installing larger extensions may affect the browser performance — mostly users with a slower Internet connection since profiles will contain more information.

Bookmark Browser and Save History

Users can access their previously browser profiles by turning on the bookmark and browser history save feature. Users have instant access on profiles the next moment they launch it. 

Password Save

This option allows the user to save passwords in their sessions so that there's no need to log in again when running a profile.

You can also find the Vault Password extension in Orbit, which you can activate and use all of your passwords across all the profiles of yours.
