AdsPower Local API and Headless Browsing

What is “headless” and API key?

  • “headless”: a parameter used to run AdsPower in headless mode
  • API key: an API key is a unique identifier used by Local APIs as authentification in headless mode. Each account has its own API key, which can be used to allow the use of Local APIs on multiple devices by one account.

How to run in headless mode?

  • Windows: AdsPower.exe — headless=true — api-key=XXXX — api-port=50325
  • MacOS: /Applications/ — args — headless=true — api-key=XXXX — api-port=50325
