Is it recommended to delete EXIF data before uploading pictured docs?

Im on the fence with this one, maybe altering the exif data is better than removing it altogether

It's like canvas (browser fingerprint) blocking. If you block canvas, not only do some websites notice you did so, but you stick out like a sore thumb. Instead of your profile blending in with all the other users, you become the odd guy.

For most photos, it might be painfully obvious of the EXIF metadata is stripped from the photos when it's expected to be there. I would be more comfortable with a tool that spoofs and changes these values with something else each time it's used instead of removing it.

One of the very best tools is Multilogin.
It allows you to run multiple browser profiles, but goes a couple steps further and changes the entire dynamics of the session, like WebRTC, Canvas Fingerprint, etc. The only problem with it it's a bit expensive. Unless you are a bit serious about your business and don't mind the cost, this is a the very best tool to use. MLA used to have a FREE option (with 10 profiles) but they recently discontinued it when the new version rolled out. That's pretty disappointing.

There is also Kameleo.
It also stops browser fingerprinting, defeats javascript, canvas, WebGL, and other types of browser fingerprinting.

Again, this involves some cost, but these are the two top tools that take stealth to a whole new level.

Truthfully tho, although I'm sure eBay & PayPal have long had the capability to use browser fingerprinting, I doubt they implement it like Amazon does. At least at THIS time.

You can bet that sometime in the future that most any major commercial site out there will be identifying it's users via other means aside from old fashioned IP addresses, cookies, LSO's, etc. Technology is slowly catching up.

This is interesting.

I think the next docs I submit I will be keeping EXIF data from a DSLR or something. All my rejected paypal docs have had no exif data attached to them.
