Re: How can earn online website owners catch cheaters with multiple accounts

Dynamic Ip address change over time. So it's impossible to catch cheaters. Only Static IP users can be caught. The mobile hotspot, internet cafe all comes under dynamic IP's.

A tough job for admins, they have to keep an eagle eye to check users ip adresses and such.. But there is the other side to it.. some newbie gets thrown out because he/she is blundering in ignorance.

Even mobile users can get scot-free as having multiple SIM/mobile is not a problem in most countries. In India a SIM is available for free and its running cost is also almost free @$2 p/m for 2GB or more data per day and unlimited voice call to any inland network.

They range from IP addresses, browsers, cookies, computer detection, OS detection, windows version and etc. Trust me, if one changes an IP while keeping everything else including screen size and etc the same, that is a cheater. You can try using the above and see of they help.

I have never realized that we could catch the cheater by checking their browser, OS, computer etc. I will have to find out more on this.

When we go online, that is part of the information which sites collect from us. If you can set up real traps using either, you can be able to know accounts which are cheaters. I once used that same info to track multiple account holders on my site. Wordfence if you are using WordPress is one way.
