Thumbs up A method to delete your flash cookies

I have noticed a lot of members here getting limited through linking their accounts, and the most common reasons is flash cookies. You put all that effort into making your stealth accounts thinking its OK to use portable or different browsers, well this is not OK you are really best using different user accounts to eradicate any possibility of having multiple PayPal/eBay accounts.

But I myself never take any chances now and found this Firefox add-on a must have if running more than 1 account.

Use Firefox browser with an addon called better privacy it deletes your flash cookies every 5 seconds or you can set it to 1 second like I have.

Why not just disable flash cookies?

Seems much simpler to me...

Just google global Adobe panel settings and that will bring up your setting panel, go to folder storage and set them to 0MB AND no site will be able to leave any flash Cookies

Each user account is separate , so if I'm in user account 1 and go to Adobe settings and allow 10mb of data and uncheck allow 3rd party sites to leave flash cookies and than go to user account 2 and go into Adobe settings they will show the default settings

So if your using separate user accounts for each stealth than its not necessary to mess with the flash settings, but if your using multiple browsers on one user account than you will need to adjust the flash settings

Default Re: A method to delete your flash cookies

But I may be doing something wrong or maybe it's just the way it is, when I was trying portable Firefox , I had multiple browsers all on one user account, so I disabled flash cookies

This caused constant verification from eBay and PayPal , when I would list an item on eBay Id need to get a text of a 4 digit code every time, and asked more often with paypal

So I just went back to separate user accounts and left flash alone and no more verifications

Just use 1 user account for each stealth account and you don't need to worry about about messing with the Flash Settings

you only need to adjust Flash when your using one user account with multiple stealth accounts all on separate browsers

Tried that they have a habit of enabling themselves again, not sure if its when it updates.
I know this for sure because it happened to me that's why I use this method.

If you change the settings and uncheck allowing 3rd party sites to store flash cookies and uncheck allowing any site to store flash cookies it should stay that way unless you change the settings, and it may have been through an update

But again I noticed when you change settings it's only for the user account that you are currently in, so if you use another user account with multiple Stealths using multiple browsers you need to adjust the settings again, each user account is independent

Is there a comparable addon for Google Chrome or is it only for Firefox?
