    So I tried clicking my ad on Youtube video using anonymous proxy which resulted in mass bans :(

    Something I don't understand is nowadays I don't see any ads showing up when I watch other people's Youtube videos.

    I felt something was wrong but it didn't take much time for me to realize what has happened to my home ip. They saw through my proxy and blacklisted my home ip.

    So it seems when I clicked that ad using proxy somehow Google Adsense got me through proxy?

    But how even that possible? Hell, it's anonymous proxy.

    Your browser has a unique signature. They know it's you even if you log out.

    Also webRTC bypasses proxies and VPNs and reveals your true IP AND even your internal network IP.

    When I need to use proxies, I usually use another browser with cleared cookies/history and then I do what I need to do (mostly registering new accounts on the same websites). You can also use some addons that will block sites from tracking you and then try again. But clicking on your own ads has never been a good idea.

    Wow that is some crazy stuff. Hey bartosimpsonio, if I have VM ware installed partitioning a different opp system on my PC and I use it to connect through my mobile hot spot - no proxy, and I never use my mobile hotspot to connect with my real computer or use my real computers IP internet on the VM Ware keeping them fully separate can that be traced to my computer and normal IP that I use? I use a website that allows one account per person and I'm trying to figure out a good way to cloak it before I do so. Any suggestions so what happened to this guy doesn't happen to me?

    Probably 90% of posts saying they had proxies and VPN and were banned are related to that. Good luck.

    Proxies and VPN will only help if you are going to manage or do a handful of tasks.
    Any advertiser platform can easily track abuse like you did.
