Geolocation settings

You can change the coordinate settings in your browser to substitute your real location with another location that corresponds to your proxy, fingerprint or account. This way, you can fool sites and services that try to determine your location from browser data and protect your privacy.

WebRTC

WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communications) is a technology that allows web applications and sites to capture and selectively transmit audio and/or video media streams, as well as exchange arbitrary data between browsers, without necessarily using intermediaries.
WebRTC technology may also reveal your real IP address, even if you use a VPN or other means of disguise. This can violate your privacy and security, as well as lead to blocking of some sites or services. Therefore, anti-detect browsers tamper with the WebRTC parameter to prevent IP address leakage and ensure anonymity and protection of users3. For this purpose, special extensions or settings are used that disable or modify the WebRTC parameter in the browser4

Time Zone

A time zone is a way of measuring time on different parts of the earth's surface.
Time zone spoofing is needed to match the region where your proxy server or the account you are working with is located. This will help you avoid suspicion from ad networks, websites and analytics services that can track your location by time zone. If you are using an account from India and your time zone is pointing to Russia, this can raise suspicion and lead to account blocking. Therefore, it is important to match your time zone to your proxy or account.

User Agent

User Agent is the information that your computer sends to a website's server when you access that website through your browser.
It contains the name and version of your browser and operating system. Sites use this information to show you content that is most appropriate for your browser and device.

CPU

CPU is the central processing unit, Antik changes the number of cores of this processor that sites display.

Memory

Memory - this parameter specifies the amount of RAM of the device.

Canvas

This is an HTML5 feature that allows you to create drawings, graphics and animations directly in the browser. It is used to create visual elements on web pages such as charts, games, photo editors, and other graphical applications.
Canvas is used as one component of a browser fingerprint that allows sites to identify the unique characteristics of your browser and device.

Canvas Noise.

To change the Canvas parameter, you can use a noise overlay. Keep in mind that Canvas is not a unique parameter and can be repeated among users, i.e. the same Canvas is allowed on different browser profiles.
Therefore, if you need to mimic a normal user's fingerprint, we do not recommend using this setting.

WebGPU.

WebGPU is a new technology that allows a browser to use a computer's graphics processing unit (GPU) to create beautiful and complex graphics and fast calculations.
The WebGPU setting in the browser is a setting that enables or disables support for this technology. When enabled, the browser can use WebGPU to display graphics on Web pages that use the

WebGL

WebGL is a graphics processing technology used to create visual effects using the GPU in a web browser.
When you visit a website, your browser may use WebGL to display graphical elements on the page. This can affect the browser footprint, which is generated based on the configuration of your browser and computer. For example, different devices may have different numbers and quality of graphics processors, which can affect the display of a web page and create a unique browser footprint.

WebGL Noise.

WebGL, just like Canvas, is a non-unique parameter. If you enable noise, the uniqueness of the parameter tends to 100%, which in turn can trigger a site security alarm.
Therefore, we recommend that you enable noise when you need a unique fingerprint and disable it when you know for sure that a particular site's anti-fraud system is suspicious of a unique fingerprint.

Media devices

This parameter includes the number of microphones, speakers, and cameras that your device has and are connected to. In Antik you can set the number of each device from 0 to 4.

Command Line Switches

Command Line Switches are special functions that can be used when running a program at the command line or terminal on a computer. They are usually easy to use and consist of one or more characters. They can be used to change program settings, set parameters, run the program in different modes to perform a task, or to perform other specialized functions.
For example, when we run the Chrome browser through the command line, we can use the keyword "-incognito" to launch the browser in incognito mode. This means that the browser will not save web browsing history or web form data.
In general, command switches simplify the use of programs and can be used by both experienced users and those who know minimal command line skills.
