    Hi!

    Well, Im sure Google knows on what device/computer was used to create account. But what does Youtube exactly knows when I create account...my computer name/ID/username? Im asking this because Youtube bans all my accounts together and all account are made from different proxies.

    When I create new user for computer do Youtube think its totally new device?

    I know I can rename my computer etc, but can I hide my computers identity?

    Share your thoughts on this please. Its getting really frustrating. :D

    Uninstall chrome and clean your computer. Try to restor your computer if it's not enouth. I'm sur google install some spyware though chrome or other. Hope your problem will be resolved fast !

    The last thing you forgot is to change your MAC address, probably they logged it too, just try to spoof it next time you create new account and doing same when you logging in to the account.

    They're banning your account because you're being too obvious while you're on the site, has nothing to do with your online anonymity.

    I don't think so, javascript can track many things, but surely not the mac address. Google javascript botguard is too good, I think it gets anything your browser records or anything you do on the browser, enough to block creating accounts in masse.
