Selenium “run as another user”

How can I do “run as another user” in a browser using selenium from Python?

To execute the “run as another user” functionality in a web browser using Selenium with Python, you can achieve this by utilizing the ChromeOptions class along with the add_argument method.

Here’s a simple example in Python:

Copy code
from selenium import webdriver

options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()

driver = webdriver.Chrome(chrome_options=options)
In this code snippet:

Replace ‘/path/to/your/user/data/directory’ with the path to the directory where the user profile data is stored.
Replace ‘ProfileName’ with the name of the user profile you want to use.
Ensure that you disable extensions using the --disable-extensions argument to avoid potential conflicts.

By configuring the ChromeOptions with the appropriate user data directory and profile, you can effectively simulate the “run as another user” functionality in the browser when using Selenium with Python.
