Mirgrating to ConcealBrowseS (formerly known as ConcealSearch)

Description

Conceal is rebranding ConcealSearch to ConcealBrowseS! This will bring upon a few changes and this guide will outline the necessary steps to take as we move to the new infrastructure.

 

*You will see an option in the upper right corner to Download Extension. This is ConcealBrowse, our lightweight browser extension that protects your browser from malware and phishing attempts. This is not necessary for the migration, but you're free to use it and try it out! Reach out if you'd like more information or a demo of ConcealBrowse.

 

Procedure

Before you begin:

The dashboard is only used by admins to configure users and their capabilities. As a user role, upon accessing the dashboard you will see "No access to the dashboard", this is expected. You are still able to launch a session by clicking the Client tab under the Session section. Refer to the section Launching a Session 

We will be migrating accounts over to our new infrastructure this week, throughout the week you will receive an email from support@conceal.io. This email will contain:

  • The new URL used to login to ConcealBrowseS
  • Your temporary password

Once you have logged in for the first time, you will be forced to change your password.

  1. Once you have reset your password, you can launch a new session from the same dashboard. Under the Session section in the nav menu, click Client.

  3. Once a session has started, you will see the name of the egress node, along with a blue border surrounding the browser. This indicates you are in your isolated, protected browsing session. Screenshot 2023-09-27 at 2.35.27 PM.png
  4. To navigate to a website, enter a new URL in the address bar of the browser within the blue border. This is your protected session. If you change the URL away from dashboard.conceal.io you will navigate away from ConcealBrowseS and you will not be in your protected session! Screenshot 2023-09-27 at 2.37.30 PM.png
  5. When you wish to close your session, click on the X in the upper right side of the browser.
