    Hi guys!

    I am trying to figure out how safe these viewbot services are if used responsibly.

    Services such as streambooster claim that none of their users have ever been detected by twitch and that the viewers and chatters they provide appear virtually like real viewers. First of all is that possible? Obviously they are using some sort of proxy technology, but more than that I don't know.

    Secondly how would twitch go about detecting this? What kind of technology could they use for this, and if so how can it be bypassed?

    Viewbotting is a pretty common "problem" on twitch, but as far as I know no one ever really gets banned for doing this as twitch simply can't tell who is responsible for the botting.

    I mean lots of people could have ordered those bots, not just the streamer.

    I'd appreciate your thoughts guys. Have a great day!

    Regards
    Wolf

    Twitch can tell based on ip where the viewer is from, and from there it is a manual review of the ip. Also people get caught with bots because they are stupid, period.

    Soulcollector, are you saying that people get caught because they use the bots wrong or because they use a bot? I guess this still comes down to my original question, can these services be used safely is one is using the bot responsibly.

    Oh and about twitch tracing the IP, wouldt it simply show the proxy destination of some random place on earth? It shouldn't let back to me at least as it is a service hosted by Streambooster.

    If you create a account with a virgin proxie on twitch , then make the account
    active , do all the bio stuff correctly and start useing it for comments and stuff
    then ,add it to a bot, with the same ip, then do whatever needs doing ,then your be ok.
    then it hard for twitch, to no if your not a bot.

    it all to do with the way you create a account, and what you do
    with the account, before adding to a bot.

    trust me i am right.

    let say i make 100 of the above accounts,
    i no for a fact i can offer anybody 100 likes,
    all i do is log into the account's, with there assigned ip
    and just press example liked button.

    but that a costly 100 likes becouse the proxies cost ,
    there around £70 month for a hundred , so your need to charge for your likes
    And try get back your proxie money plus profit.

    who said im was easy....

    your notice that as a imer the cost for proxies
    become a huge layout in methods you do.....

    but also im, is a business not for fun, but even thu us im work
    from home the layout can be huge...(( so can the profit , and benifit not having a boss))
