    This thread offers some good advice, but I'm still baffled.
    I've cleared cookies/all history, logged out of every connection with google. Tried chrome incognito.
    I use hide the ip.
    It doesn't matter. I'm still getting prompted for SMS. How is google doing this?

    Thanks for the reply. Can you explain this? How could I disable it?

    Edit yer Host file perhaps:)

    Set anything that goes to Adobe to 120.0.0.1
    And for security after you do that make the host file Read only so applications may not update it.

    COPIED FROM SOMEWHERE:

    Please note this post only pertains to machines with Windows XP installed.

    Access is prevented to the websites listed in your HOSTS file, so if you're irritated by a particular pop-up, for example, you could simply add the website it's coming from to your HOSTS file.

    The first step in editing your HOSTS file is to find it.

    My Computer > C: (or whatever drive Windows is on) > WINDOWS > system32 > drivers > etc > hosts

    Note: If you aren't sure where My Computer is [​IMG] or you just want to use a keyboard shortcut to open it, you can hold down the Windows key (which looks like http://www.cisp.com/enews/myvine/july04/windowskey.jpg) on your keyboard while you press the "E" key.

    Right-click on the HOSTS file, and click Open. A window will appear asking what to open it with; find Notepad, select it, and click OK.

    If you've never edited your HOSTS file before, this is what it should look like:

    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    You'll notice all entries begin with "127.0.0.1"; all entries MUST begin with this. If a website is preceded by "127.0.0.1", this means the website cannot load and is blocked. The first entry in the HOSTS file is "127.0.0.1 localhost". Your HOSTS file MUST begin with that entry.

    To add websites to your HOSTS file (to block them), use this as a guideline:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 http://www.blockthiswebsite.com
    After you've edited your HOSTS file, save the changes made (File > Save).

    You're done!

    Optional but recommended:

    If you would like to use a pre-made HOSTS file, I recommend you use http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt. This HOSTS file blocks websites with ads/banners, parasites, hijackers, and unwanted search engines.

This also helps to protect your Privacy and Security by blocking sites that may track your viewing habits, also known as "click-thru tracking" or Data Miners. Simply using a HOSTS file is not a cure-all against all the dangers on the Internet, but it does provide another effective "Layer of Protection".

    If you would like to use the MVPS HOSTS file, open your HOSTS file and delete everything in it. Copy everything in http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.txt (a quick way to select everything is Ctrl+A, then right-click > Copy). Once everything is copied, paste it into your HOSTS file (right-click > Paste). Then, you can save.

    Optional but recommended:

    I would also suggest you make your HOSTS file read-only. This is not necessary, but by doing so, it makes it harder for malicious software to modify your HOSTS file. To make your HOSTS file read-only:

    1) Right-click on the HOSTS file
    2) Click Properties
    3) You will see a window open. Look at the bottom of the window. To the right of Attributes, check the box that says Read-only.
    4) Click Apply/OK.

    Note: When your HOSTS file is read-only, you cannot make any changes to it (setting it to read-only helps in preventing modifications to the file), so if you want to add a new entry to your HOSTS file later on, you'll have to uncheck the Read-only box before you edit; you can then set it back to read-only when you're finished.

    Maybe Local Shared Objects (Flash Cookies). You can delete them with the FF add-on "Objection".
