Default Phone tethering

I've searched the threads a couple days now for info on tethering phone to PC. I've gleaned that it changes your IP, but are there any other fingerprints I should know about that Amazon can link to? ie., IMEI, serial number, phone number, wifi MAC address, cookies, etc.

Tethering does NOT transmit IMEI, Serial Number, Phone Number, MAC Address, or Cookies.

And one more question: does it transmit your PC's fingerprint? Do I have to do any scrubbing? Thanks

the PC Transmits your fingerprint via Browser, the Tethering doesn't have anything to do with that. You can't "scrub" a fingerprint....from what I know (could be wrong). You can "modify" your fingerprint, I believe a few members have more knowledge in that area.

I found on Amazon Ghost that Amazon CAN read a tethered cell phone's MAC address and can therefore only be used for one Amazon account. Uncool giving wrong information. I'm glad I double checked.

Tethering is great. Just use a spreadsheet to keep track of your IP addresses. Other than that. Nothing to worry about!

But I read in Amazon Ghost that Amazon can read your tethered phone's MAC address and link your accounts. Is the book wrong?

Nothing is perfect, no website can read your MAC address without your permission.

Better to be on the cautious side of things anyhow, especially with amazon

For the most part... any internet connection, amazon can only see the IP, not the details of the device regardless if its tether, ethernet, wifi etc.

The MAC address, cannot be seen by AZ. You can force an IP address change, by changing your MAC address. But, cell phones change IP address frequently, anyway.

Cookies, and "fingerprints", are on the PC side of the equation. Those still need to be scrubbed, and removed.
