Geelark 101: Everything You Need to Know Before Starting Working With GeeLark

Whether you’re an existing user or a potential customer, this post is designed to answer all your burning questions about GeeLark. From understanding its unique features to differentiating it from other tools, we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive in!

What’s the difference between GeeLark and an antidetect browser?

GeeLark is an antidetect solution for mobile multi-accounting. Unlike traditional antidetect browsers that mimic only browsers, GeeLark provides phone profiles that mimic the behavior of real smartphones. This means you can run multiple instances of apps, manage various accounts, and perform tasks that would typically require a physical device—all from the cloud.

Read here to learn more how GeeLark differs from antidetect browsers.

What is a cloud phone profile?

GeeLark’s cloud phone profile operates using cloud phone technology. A cloud phone is essentially an Android device hosted in the cloud, providing all the major functionalities of a physical smartphone without the need for actual hardware. GeeLark collaborates with several cloud phone providers, enabling users to rent cloud phones directly within the GeeLark app. When creating a cloud phone profile, you will need to select a cloud phone to run the profile on. Once activated, the profile operates on the chosen cloud phone, allowing you to install apps and perform tasks just as you would on a regular smartphone.

Do your cloud phones have phone numbers?

No, our cloud phones don’t have phone numbers, and thus they cannot be used to make calls or send SMS.

Is GeeLark an Android emulator?

Absolutely not. An Android emulator is a software that replicates the Android operating system on your computer. While emulators are useful for development and testing, they fall short compared to GeeLark in terms of performance and compatibility with certain apps. Emulators’ performance is highly dependent on the computer’s capabilities, whereas GeeLark’s service operates on a cloud server, offering superior speed and performance. Likewise, emulators also lack the scalability and ease of use that GeeLark provides.

Operational environment and development

GeeLark operates on a real or near-real Android OS hosted on cloud servers, providing unique hardware information. Essentially, it functions as a remote, physical phone that resides in the cloud.

In contrast, an emulator is a software that runs on a personal computer, mimicking the phone’s hardware and Android system environment. Unlike GeeLark, it lacks actual hardware information and instead simulates hardware resources such as the phone’s processor, memory, and GPU.

Performance and compatibility

Thanks to the robust computing power of cloud servers, GeeLark delivers superior performance and compatibility for running resource-intensive apps and games. It allows multiple instances to operate simultaneously without the constraints of local hardware.

On the other hand, emulators are restricted by the capabilities of the computer. High-load apps may experience lag, and compatibility hinges on the optimization of the emulator software, potentially causing some apps to run improperly due to incomplete emulation.

Accessibility and applications

GeeLark runs in the cloud and is accessible on any device, offering greater flexibility and convenience for situations where you need to use or manage the device anytime and anywhere, such as phone farms and social media management.

Conversely, emulators are typically installed on a computer and can only be accessed from that specific machine. While this makes them less mobile, they are well-suited for scenarios requiring computer hardware and peripherals, like keyboards and mice, to perform tasks such as app testing.

Anti-detect and anti-ban capability

GeeLark simulates a real phone environment with full hardware information, reducing the risk of detection and blocking by apps or games compared to emulators. Emulators, lacking real hardware data, are more prone to being detected and blocked by certain apps or games.

Scalability and bulk management

GeeLark enables simultaneous operation of multiple cloud phone profiles, ideal for batch management tasks such as application promotion and game farming. While you can run several emulators on your computer at the same time, their number is constrained by your computer’s performance, which can impact overall efficiency. Additionally, GeeLark offers a more robust batch management function compared to standard emulators.

How does GeeLark charge?

GeeLark’s pricing structure consists of two components: the subscription plan and the cloud phone. To begin utilizing GeeLark’s services, you must select a subscription that matches the number of cloud phone profiles you require. Given the necessity for cloud phone profiles to operate on cloud phones, it is also essential to invest in cloud phones. 

Subscription plans

GeeLark offers three tailored subscription options: Free, Base, and Pro. Each plan is crafted to meet diverse needs, ensuring that GeeLark users have the flexibility to choose the perfect fit for their endeavors. 

It should be noted that the number of profiles included in each plan represents only the quantity you can create. To activate and run these profiles in the cloud, you will need to rent cloud phones separately.


Cloud phone charges

GeeLark’s cloud phone profiles require the use of cloud phones, making it necessary to rent them to access GeeLark’s services. GeeLark has streamlined this process by integrating resources from major cloud phone providers, allowing users to rent cloud phones directly within the GeeLark app.To rent a cloud phone, go to the Devices section and click “Add new device” to choose the desired type. Note that adding a cloud phone is free; you only incur charges for the usage time.

Our pricing model is designed for flexibility and cost-efficiency, charging for the actual usage time with a daily cap of 2.5 hours. For example:

  • If you use a Premium cloud phone, the cost is $0.08 per 15 minutes.
  • Using it for 2 hours a day will cost you $0.64 ($0.08 * 120/15).
  • Using it for 8 hours a day would typically cost $2.56 ($0.08 * 480/15), but with our cap, you only pay $0.8, the maximum daily expenditure for a Premium cloud phone.

Compared to the common monthly or yearly payment models of most cloud phone providers, which usually start at $30 per month, GeeLark’s service is more cost-effective, especially when operating multiple cloud phones for just a few hours each day.
