    This is getting to be ridiculous. I've been trying to create a Meetme account for about 2 weeks now and it's just not happening. A little backstory: About 2 years ago I had a legit Meetme account that got banned after posting a shirtless photo of myself holding my dog.

    Apparently either a user or one of Meetme's intellectually gifted moderators found this to be a bit too risqué because when I tried logging in the next day I got a message saying my username and password didn't match. Bullshit. Alright, I thought, I'll go ahead and create a new one. No dice, since I've got just the one cellphone and phone verification wasn't having none of it, I kind of gave up on the site for a while.

    Here I am a couple years later, and anytime I do try, I get a new message, "Based on the information you provided, you may not register at this time". Now of course I'm using a different computer, however I've still got the same ISP I had back then. No matter what combination of IP changing, cookie deletion and OS wiping I choose to use I get nowhere. Same message, based on the information you provided, you may not register at this time.

    After doing some digging on SEO's forums and throughout Google, apparently Meetme uses some kind of advanced fingerprinting through a company called Threatmetrix. Researching Threatmetrix's fingerprinting methods doesn't yield too many results, but after checking out WhitePaper and the Wall Street Journal's threads, they seem to have some pretty robust methods of profiling users that seems to go beyond anything I've ever seen before. I've seen a few threads on this site discussing their methods, but I haven't been able to find anyone so far who seems to have gotten past their security.

    The only thread I've seen so far that discusses getting past Meetme's account verification system is on post 7285122.

    One of the members in this thread claims to have some experience with Threatmetrix, but this thread pretty much died back in 2014. If anyone has any experience cracking their security, I'd be much appreciative. At this point its just a matter of principle for me, I don't want to let these assholes 'beat me' since it seems their prerequisites for bringing down the banhammer are so absolutely fucking laughably ridiculous. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them.

    Threatmetrix is just a protection, they send encrypted information about your device to a server and then verify if information you sent are correct.
    Meetme is not the only one using this kind of defense, most social networks have similar kind of encryption, but they can be bypassed.

    My intent has been to figure out exactly what kind of fingerprinting they use so I can figure out how this can be done. Some have suggested using a pva but that doesn’t seem like it will work knowing what I’ve read about threatmetrix.

    Isn't Threatmetrix part of Verisign now?
