    But with other things Ive read Tor may not even be the solution any more. What are your thoughts?

    Thats prolly the only remaining solution.... But even then one needs to be careful about the footprints they do on that.

    Interesting, but any big companies already implemented this? Or what should we do to protect this happen and accounts lost?

    Yes they do. Big companies like Google, Microsoft do this. Those who are farming accounts for example say bing ads know that you can't create a clean account using different user agent and browser simulation, your machine needs to have clean Mac, serial etc etc. Technically, your layer 2 address I.e Mac should remain local to your local network (router), how Microsoft identifies Mac from your browser is kinda hard to explain, some form/exploit of ARP maybe? There must be someone on this forum having knowledge about this, can he/she elaborate it?

    To protect this in case of accounts farming such as bing ads you use a VM with different mac , OS , browser and list goes on, or use Amazon free tier vps to create a bing account (almost everyone does it this way)
