    Hi everyone,

    So, I need some help on this one.
    I have for some time been fiddling around with creating (fake) Trustpilot reviews for some businesses. However, a lot of the reviews tend to be deleted or detected by Trustpilots own compliance-software.
    • For every review/profile I've made, I've created a unique email address (i.e. hotmail, outlook etc.), and then created a Trustpilot user with that email.

    • I have been using a unique VPN IP-address for each review and user so that each review is made from its own VPN IP address and not two reviews have the same IP Address.

    However, a lot of my reviews tend to be deleted after 2-4 weeks.
    I am creating the reviews from the same device (mac laptop), and I'm starting to wonder wether Trustpilot is able to recognise my device which may be why my reviews are removed? I always use either Chrome Incognito or Mozilla Private to make the reviews. And I wipe all the data/cookies etc. after each session.

    Now, this makes me wonder - does Trustpilot know that I'm using the same machine, and thus deletes my reviews? I mean, if Netflix can tell that you've logged into your account from an unknown/new device, then surely sites like Trustpilot will be able to detect this too?

    So, my question goes - will spoofing my User Agent (UA) help to solve this problem, or are there someone out there who can recommend a solution for my issue?

    Thanks

    There are a 100+ ways a website can identify you or your browser from hardware fingerprinting to typing pattern and changing UA would like do little to prevent this. I suggest you read this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Device_fingerprint to understand the concept of fingerprinting better.

    You can try to turn off JavaScript however this would likely look just as suspicious. The easiest solution for you would be to use specific software such as MultiLogin or similar.

    Good luck ;)

    Oh, And if you need custom made browsers/Useragent spoofed then you can feel free to PM me.

    I have a lot of those i am using those in PP and its not easy to spot those!

    They are used by the professional's. Rest can be talked in private.

    The only decent option out there right now is MultiLoginApp, but they've recently turned to extortionate pricing models. Also using a VPN is going to be suspicious by itself.

    Home Page:
    Use chrome with developers tools turned on and select a device view, usually this will send different headers.

    Also, try closing webRTC, just to make sure.
