Don't use a vpn.
Resetting your modem to get a new ip is fine.
Keep a log of the ip's your modem shoots out so you don't repeat them. Using the same ip on different paypals will link them, and when one goes down, all the linked ones go down with it.
You'll need to clear cookies and LSO files (flash cookies) as well as get a new name, address, email address, phone number, (they almost never call) password, bank account, and credit card.
How about creating a new Virtual Machine for each of your Paypal accounts and using them under private proxies? There's nothing better you can do, i guess..
I will have to google some hours before I know what you exactly mean and be able to do that
You don't need a virtual machine for a new un linked paypal account. You just need to do all of the steps I outlined above.
Download an add-on for mozilla called better privacy. It will help you clear your lso files
Everything has to be different on the new paypal... You don't need a virtual machine. With an adsense account, you would need a virtual machine. Paypal, you don't.
thanks for your answers all so far and willingness to help. appreciate that.
Do you recommend open a new user account in Windows, or just cleaning up your cookies well as well as the addon will do the job?
i read creating new user accounts on your desktop is the right way to go...so you never have to clear your cookies and flash...somebody correct me if this is wrong and/or outdated way of doing it
Then open the account in a different name.
You have to be careful. Sometimes the bank makes you have the name on the incoming deposit match. If you name is Larry, and you get deposits coming from paypal under the name of George, sometimes the bank doesn't like that.
Opening an account with alias is perfectly fine and legal. Some people aren't okay with the idea, so that's why I suggested maybe using your name.
Thank you again.
Installed the addon and read the instructions quickly. If I am not wrong I just have to install yhe plugin and leave it with the default settings, so it deletes all LSO after closing the browser, am I right?
Eh.... I would go a step further.
You'll need to check the box that says something like "add LSO deletion settings to mozilla dialogue" (i don't remember the exact phrase off the top of my head)
THEN... go into Mozilla and change the settings to delete all LSO upon closing of mozilla. There will be a new box there to check after the install of better privacy.
Just bouncing at another problem. When I open another user account, it freezes when I want to switch to that account. Also if I restart the computer, I am not able to do anything on the other user account.
But that seems more like a windows problem I have to sort out.
You think with your description Im relative safe, also if I dont use another windows user account? have you got any more advice we have not spoken about yet, before I start?
I know there is already talked a lot on here about it, but I just see a lot of different opinions, and looking for some kind of confirmation to feel safe, and you seem a reputable member here.
Yes, that's a windows issue.
Not using another windows user account is fine. But, you have to make sure all cookies are cleared when you switch between accounts. If you're only using the one paypal account, you only have to do it once.
Trust me, I'm right about this. I know there are a lot of opinions... there's also a lot of misinformation and bad ideas. I've been doing it for years, and I would openly challenge anyone to dispute what I'm saying (in regards to new unlinked paypal accounts)
ive read its better to have the multiple user accounts without clearing flash/cookies bc ebay starts gettings suspicious every time it has to re-load cookies/flash every time you sign in and out of accounts...that is the reason why ppl set up user accounts on their desktop..no? thats what i read..no personal experience though..correct me if I am wrong. pretty much the more normal you look to ebay, the better you are under the radar and out of their sights
