    I want to do some pinterest posting and want to create a few fake accounts. (My main account cannot/should-not/must-not get banned at any cost, as it is too imp for me). So I want to cover my tracks perfectly. Can somebody help me with a few doubts/questions as I understand the basics, but am not sure if proxies will be 'robust' enough a solution..

    Here are a few doubts/questions:

    1. I understand that I can use proxies to cover my tracks. But sometimes they don't work (dead proxies/proxies failing). So what happens when a proxy fails or whatever? Won't it reveal my original IP? (I did google this, and didn't get a clear answer)
    2. Can I use something like Hotspot Shield/ UltraSurf to hide myself in the beginning (to get started for FREE/cheap)? Will it be reliable? (Coz sometimes they doesn't seem very effective in fooling FileStorage websites etc. )
    3. How about buying a single cheap proxy for $2-3 pm? Will a private proxy be 'enough' to keep me hidden? Will it reveal my original IP if/when it 'fails'?
    4. These days websites are using cookieless tracking/device-fingerprinting (and what not) to track users. Any way we can beat those? Any special browsers we can/should use for our black/grey-hat activities (as our regular broswsers can leave all kinds of clues & tracks for websites)?

    What do people/you generally do to get around these 'loopholes' of proxies that may leave us exposed?

    If you were me, what would you do (or what 'do' you do) to cover your tracks as best as you can? I just wanna make sure under I don't leave ANY (obvious/avoidable) tracks behind, which may lead up to my main account.
