Default Can Screen/Monitor Resolution Link You




Can screen resolution link you? For example, if I have a wide screen monitor with a resolution that not too many people use, and I use it to create 20 accounts. Can Ebay use that as a linking factor when deciding to suspend your accounts? e.g.. in the scenario where they found 2 linking factors, but they weren't completely sure... And then, they checked the screen resolution and all 20 accounts were identical.

They can do yes

Alter the browser size though, make it smaller than the screen, and they cannot link you that way

It shouldn't in most cases.

Most likely, yes, but this is just my presumption.
In a manual review, eBay staffs will be looking for similarities, and it is tough to avoid similarities on 20 active accounts. At some point, you'd get lazy and sell the same item on multiple accounts. Your dispatch and shop closing times amongst many other things may be identical too.
Someone who's looking can easily find a link.

If I had 20 accounts, I would only use a handful at any time and just warm up the rest - ready to be rotated giving the first handful that I used the last 1or 2 years a temporary rest.

I think, resolution is not important
you should care about cookies, localstorage, locale and mostly user agent

Resolution is part of the fingerprint usually. It alone probably cannot get you busted since these values are fairly standard, but in order to make yourself appear as unique as possible better alter it (it's also easy).
