    Shouldn't be able to get your Mac unless they are running a funky Java app - as for the timezone, possible I guess, perhaps from the language you have installed will narrow it down. Failing that the IP to country / city type thing will get the timezone but can defeated with proxies / VPNs

    Is there any software that can change all information that can be tracked down with click?
    in iprental and proxyrental software i guess i saw such options.
    Things go normal when i perform a installation of windows xp. I see that website is able to track OS info.

    i dont know for a fact, but the large commercial sites like FB, YT and G probably do track mac address.
    time zone should be fairly simple for them to track.
    FB locked some of my accounts one time when i foolishly linked them, so who knows.
    i don't see why they wouldn't, they have the money and technology to do it, so be careful.
    just my opinion.

    I don't think that any site can track MAC adresses without your permission. If you have a tool that show the mac adress installed in windows you have to start it as admin to show the MAC... this is one thing and second: if Google or Facebook can see the MAC then nobody will be able to market on youtube or facebook (not even with good proxies and pva accounts)

    They have the same tools that we use... Just use the Public door.
    Proxies should be a failed story, coz they have proxie scanner... and the MAC address is changing easy i dont think that they use those 2 , Look for other Things :>

    :yeah:

    Goggle "browser fingerprinting" for what is exposed by the browser client side
    Server side - yes, you can easily get Geo and much more
    'Wan side' Mac address of your router is (to my limited knowledge) improbable (do a traceroute to see how many routers between you and the host). Im pretty sure client side MAC doesnt go beyond you and your router
    I may well be wrong

    I was fighting with time Zone problem few weeks back. I did good research online, does it affect when creating multiple account on Social sites like twitter,FB. And the answer is yes, it does affect.

    So let's say you live in X country and you Y country proxy, so when you go and see your ip check2ip site, it says time mismatched or different ip detected. Now if that useless site can see if your time is not as Y country, huge social networking sites can easly detect it and use it as weapon against all your accounts.

    My solution, I found some great program, that can delete your laptop time and region. I am sorry, but I don't want to advertise programs in here, but you can find it from google.
