    Hello people hopefully smarter than me!
    I've had this question since I started the IM game a few years ago and have yet to find a reasonable answer. In my various attempts at social media marketing, I have tried to make multiple twitter or gmail accounts on my own rather than purchasing them. I have also read about others trying to do the same. Inevitably, after 2 or 3 accounts we are hit with a phone verification prompt. This happens no matter what attempts I've made to hide my identity. Private IPs, bluestacks, vpn, vps...Hell, Ive even driven across town to different locations/IPs trying to accomplish the creation of more than 3 accounts and I'm recognized every time. I use private browsing, different browsers, changed device ids after unistall/reinstall of bluestacks...somehow I am still identified.

    So my question...If twitter/google/others can identify the device from which I am creating these accounts, then surely they can identify the device from which I am accessing them to post/follow/etc. If they have this capability, then IPs are irrelevant, and any mass campaign from a single computer or VPS is destined to fail. Does anyone know what identifiable information is passed from my computer and is there any way to spoof or hide this information?

    thanks!

    Maybe some type of cookies. I use these plugins in firefox, self destructing cookies , noscript, better privacy, i'm not shure if they can help you in your thing

    Use ccleaner to delete the flash cookies from your system.

    just installed it...ty for the tip on webrtc...i have oc tried deleting cookies, but this is the first ive heard of webrtc...cookies are specific to browsers if im not mistaken, so switching browsers should eliminate cookies from the equation? idk, but i will try again with this addon

    Each device (computer, phone) has its own fingerprint created by combining the mac address combined with the OS combined with screen size combined with a zillion other things. Cookies are not needed to find repeat visitors. Google and Twitter can probably distinguish people by typing speed interlaced with grammar and content specs (number of paragraphs, sentences per paragraph, words per sentence - this can all be measured). They may not know who you are by name but they can tell you are the same person in a myriad of ways.

    MAC-Address
    IP (subnet, geo location)
    hostname
    Screen resolution
    WebRTC
    Java
    Cookies
    Flashcookies
    installed plugins/addons in browser
    DNS (! resolve DNS only through proxy to avoid)
    Useragent

    a VPN would alter most of it.

    If you use proxies extension to hide your identity then, it may be identified.
    But if you use software of proxies like HMA Pro VPN then, no one can identify your identity and you and your place can't be recognized.

    - Using a Virtual machine, with a fresh OS install + browser (ie or ff) , default settings works best.
    - Don't use chrome at all
    - Disable webrtc, or your real IP is still visible even though you're behind a VPN.
    in firefox set
    to FALSE

    That is about pulling some things from bios and no one proxy or VPN can't help ... only solution is VPS.

    MAC Address alone could uniquely identify any system that doesn't have a duplicate MAC of another due to manufacturing errors (fun times if your company receives a batch of NICs like that). However short of using ActiveX or some other extension/plugin, and asking the user for permissions; a website won't be able to get this information from visitor.

    So shouldn't worry about this.

    Add to this: what fonts you have installed, and any other metric found here: https://panopticlick.eff.org/

    Anyone figure out how to remain undetected with Flash or WebRTC enabled?

    Best Regards

    In this case, I use proxies. But before I switch to any proxies I always perform my CCleaner first, in that way all the history in your system will be cleared out. I find it very effective.
