Default Important - eBay can track you via browser fingerprints !

Thesafety.us kit can show browser fingerprints even if you use different windows users with fresh installed chrome browsers and of course different IPs…

So I am pretty sure eBay can also see this.. any suggestions how to avoid this??

Or shall I need to have completely new PC for each account now ? Or VPS ?

Completely virgin pc or phone works just okay. As they seem to check hardware as well.

I don't use Chrome but with firefox, by manually tweaking tons of settings in about:config I've been able to confuse the hell out of websites. When I go to whoer.net now it shows the wrong operating system, browser, system time, everything. Aspkin's rented CDN absolutely hates it and won't ever let me on the site anymore if I try to use a VPN.

Thing is that hardening makes things even worse, as ebay bots now work very simple - if they do not see a picture of an average customer, they block you straight away. So that is why a real device is needed - to pass bot check. There seem to be no software (vps, multilogin, multiuser) that can trick them now reliably. But just using a clean brand new device via 4g network works great.

Good morning dano. Is it really morning in Italy right now?


@muzzie - aside from hcaptcha's every time I login I haven't had any problems. For the most part though I agree with what you're saying. Taking extra steps to "anonymize" yourself just makes you look suspicious from eBay's POV because you don't look like a normal user. I did it primarily for places other than eBay and have been considering moving my eBay account to a portable FF which isn't hardened to avoid all the captchas.

Thanks for the info, it’s very useful. So you’re just using different windows user accounts?

I'm just using different copies of Firefox portable for each account. I used to use virtual machines but I no longer feel it's necessary.

My main account is the one selling on a "hardened" instance of Firefox.

Firefox or virtual machine seems does not work for creating new accounts. New PC is good when creating new account.

I don't think different users should be OK now, especially when you create new stealth account.

Virtual machines and different users do not work anymore. New hardware needed.

Paranoia or solid basis to affirm it ?

On bonanza they pull webgl and canvas which stays the same across similar browsers and user accounts. I use canvas blocker which creates and maintains fingerprints across multiple sites. Seems to work

That site can't even detect I'm running a Proxy.

Download a fingerprint blocker extension. They show notifications when canvas or webgl is requested. It happens on specific pages with every page reload. Some sites dont pull the data at all.

But how do you know eBay checks that?. I know your PC/ Browser leak info but eBay doesn't check it. Got several eBays suspended but nothing happens if opening a new in the same PC. I just use different PC users, that's all. And it has been working for me since I began on eBay in 2003
