Important - About detection
« on: November 25, 2015, 03:30:28 PM »

Hi there.
I wanted to inform the community about a new flash cookie that i found.
You can all check it on your Control Panel --> Flash Player --> Local storage settings.
the file's name is device.maxmind.com
If you check about maxmind you will find pretty much all information needed.

maxmind is a geolocation provider who shows to which country your IP belongs...

They have more features than geolocation.

You can remove it using browser extesion for example.
Google for flash cookies remove extension.

If you clean your computer regularly you have nothing to worry.

I have just checked and you are right. No need to install extra plugins for chrome.

Then bookmakers can connect all your accounts.
In result you have fast limits, verification problems and even money confiscation.

bookmakers connecting our accounts, is this if they're of the same owner?
So do you guys use incognito mode when going through bookmakers websites then?

Incognito mode is not what you think. In incognito mode browser do not save any data on the disc.
It stores all data in Random Access Memory. Bookmaker see your traffic same way as in normal mode.

Hey Atilla,

So the best way to avoid detection is to delete the maxwind on a daily basis then?

thanks for the info, though i couldnt find maxmind.  is it good enough to just clear cookies everyday?  i'd rather not clear all form data all the time.  makes logging in quicker.

I do cleaning everytime I change IP address...
In case you do not have a friend you do not need to clean browser data.

If you don't want the hassle of form filling and usernames/passwords constantly then consider using lastpass. It's free for the features you will need and is a brilliant tool for storing passwords/usernames/form filling.
