    Hello,

    I have been using UserAgent Switcher for Firefox to fake my OS/Browser etc basically faking my user agent every time I write a fake review on Google+ or Yelp. Can they tell my actual OS/Browser etc eventhough I am faking it through some backdoor method?

    I have javascript on but no java and no flash. Also, I am changing my IP and screen resolution each time but that is not what I am worried about, I am more worried about them finding out my real Useragent.

    Thanks in advance!

    I use FF user agent switcher everyday for a few of my methods. I have never had an issue using it. When I do not enable it on certain sites I cannot gain access, letting me know that it does indeed work. Other than that it is a guessing game.

    I also disable JavaScript as much as I can. I toggle it off/on whenever I absolutely need to use it. Good luck!

    don't worry, user agent switcher is safe, they won't catch you this way :)
