Yah, I’m tired of windows messing up.

But I also wanna make sure I can clone the data to the Mac to prevent ‘ this is a new device’ nonsense.

ya exactly I haven't ever tried to do that is it pretty simple? I just started backing up my computer to a 4TB Seagate external hard drive I bought and I have my Ip tracking and all account info saved on an encrypted SanDisk flash drive since I have been making quite a few accounts don't want someone to get ahold of all those accounts info that would be no good.

PayPal will know what OS you are using , I think it's not good to migrate all account at once, PayPal will see that all your accounts are connecting from different computer at same date !

People change device all the time, its not an unusual behavior, just dont go on making other changes to your accounts at the same time and it should be fine.

What about doing what some others say. Putting it on Firefox portable (or other portable app) and just using it from the USB stick? You could always use the same harddrive and put it on a device that allows you to slide in the HD into it and hooked it up with a USB. But for the part about getting flagged by PP. As long as you got the same IP and all you should be good. But no experience with it at all. I would test 1 by 1 out over 3 months? Just play it safe. Maybe someone with more technological skills on here could shine in.

If you use the apple mail app for your emails make sure you go into setting and disable loading images from remote servers. This one got a few of my accts when i switched as it is automatically opted in

What do you use for your accounts now? What browser and how do you separate each account? With different Users on your PC?

any ip lookup service will determine the browser and OS system used to connect over Internet
PayPal ofcourse will record all those informations, so one day if they start investigating your accounts that will help them to create a link between all your accounts , it's not a big factor but it's better to stay STEALTHY as much as you can

It's only a sort term issue at best, certainly not much of an issue.

Just set up your new machine and start using it afresh, see it as a spring clean of your ageing data.
