Reddit uses anything but proxies to detect a user?

    I am planning to setup a 10-15 reddit accounts. I am not planning to upvote my own posts, I'm not that stupid. I know it wouldn't work. I just want to post my content without having my account or domain banned. So my question is is having 15 proxies enough or do I need some other protection when I do this?

    I always use a "user agent spoofer" whenever I am using multiple accounts on a single site. It's good to change up the browser fingerprint.

    Big thanks, man. This is the most useful information I got here. If someone else can share their experience it'd be great. Also, do I need to use private, shared or free proxies?

    Private would work the best.

    Yup, downloaded it and installed it. But it isn't clearing the cookies or anything else I thought it'll do.

    That is because it is not designed to do that. I use the Click and Clean add-on for FireFox for that: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clickclean/

    I was just about to make a thread on cloaking. If you use proxies, make sure they are Elite.

    For cookies and security I use these add-ons in FF: Better Privacy, NoScript, Ghostery, Adblock. I always close the browser after I use a proxy to make sure my cookies are cleared and I clear all the cache. Make sure to always browse in private mode, never save history, accept third-party cookies from visited.

    For the Agent I use User Agent Switcher add-on, you can download a whole list of user agents, you can access sites as a search bot, spider and a tons more. I usually just have it on Mac or Linux with FF or Chrome.

    For proxy I use the add-on Best Proxy Switcher. You can go to a free proxies site, copy paste the entire page, put it in the add-on "Import proxy list", with all the text and everything, it doesn't matter and it will only grab the IP's and ports.

    Good luck!

    Thanks everyone, it seems to be working so far. My accounts aren't banned and sites neither. But I've just started. I really needed this as I get 10-20 bucks daily easy from Reddit.
