GetUserAgent - Random/Fake/Spoof Common User Agents

Table of Contents


This is just a simple python module to produce a random, commonly used user agents each time. It contains 11 lists for a total of 1,100 user agents. You can choose and combine lists depending on your needs.


Assumes you have python3 installed.

pip install getuseragent


  • Get a random user agent of Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, IE, Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, Linux, Desktop, Mobile, Bots, or any combination
  • User-Agents from 100 of the most commonly used
  • Add requests handler prefix
  • Spoofed or fake user agents
  • Combine multiple user agent lists

Use Cases

  • Check that your website statistics are identifying browsers correctly
  • Handle bots visiting your website
  • Making a security system to detect fake user agents?

Code Examples


from getuseragent import UserAgent

useragent = UserAgent()

theuseragent = useragent.Random()

Example output:

Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 12_2 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/15E148

User-Agents Available

Each of the following lists contains 100 commonly used user agents for that software/device/system.

# Firefox
useragent = UserAgent("firefox")

# Chrome
useragent = UserAgent("chrome")

# Safari
useragent = UserAgent("safari")

# Internet Explorer (IE)
useragent = UserAgent("ie")

# Edge
useragent = UserAgent("edge")

# iOS
useragent = UserAgent("ios")

# Android
useragent = UserAgent("android")

# Windows
useragent = UserAgent("windows")

# Mac
useragent = UserAgent("mac")

# Linux
useragent = UserAgent("linux")

Sets including multiple lists:

# Desktop (Windows + Mac + Linux)
useragent = UserAgent("desktop")

# Mobile (iOS + Android)
useragent = UserAgent("mobile")

# All (Everything except bots)
useragent = UserAgent()
# or
useragent = UserAgent("all")

Bots like web crawlers:

# Bots
useragent = UserAgent("bots")


You can combine lists and sets together. Use the + sign between list names. Duplicate lists will automatically be removed so there's only 1 of each list at most.


# Chrome and Edge and iOS
useragent = UserAgent("chrome+edge+ios")

# Mobile + Firefox
useragent = UserAgent("mobile+firefox")

# All + Bots
useragent = UserAgent("all+bots")

# Print a random user agent based on your selection:

Print Random User Agent From List

You can print a single random user agent like so:

# Initialise
useragent = UserAgent()

# Get one random user agent
ua = useragent.Random()

# Print user agent

Performance / Limiting

You can limit the total amount of user agents in the list to save memory. The default is no limit, and each list has 100 commonly used user agents.

# Using 3 lists would make the total available user agents 300
useragent = UserAgent("chrome+firefox+ios")

# You can limit the total to, for example, 50:
# (List is randomised before truncating)
useragent = UserAgent("chrome+firefox+ios", total=50)

# You can limit individual lists
# This would give 10 firefox user agents + 10 safari user agents
# The total amount of user agents available would be 20
useragent = UserAgent("firefox+safari", limit=10)

# You can combine limit and total
# This would get 10 user agents for both android and ie, for 20 user agents
# The list would be randomised, then reduced to 15 total available user agents
useragent = UserAgent("android+ie", limit=10, total=15)

# Print a random user agent

Requests Handler

You can enable the option to return your user agents ready to be used with the requests module.

# Example
import requests
from getuseragent import UserAgent

myuseragent = UserAgent("all", requestsPrefix=True).Random()

# Example Output:
# --
# {'User-Agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:61.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/61.0'}

page = requests.get("", headers=myuseragent)

To Do

  • Error handling
  • Retrieve updated, most popular user-agents from the internet
  • Better performance
  • Hot-swappable lists
  • Custom list(s)
  • Command line arguments
  • Improve Readme


  • 0.0.7 (June 9th, 2021)
1. Added individual list limits, which can be used when using one or multiple lists.
For example, if you used:

UserAgent("firefox+ios", limit=5)

It would limit each list to 5 user agents, and two lists, bringing the total user agents 10.

2. Checks if user agent files exist.
3. Checks if user list empty in Random()
