    Hi, and thanks for any advice you can offer.

    The aim is to be able to access different betting accounts on the same website without the website concerned being aware that they are all being accessed from the same laptop. It's nothing dubious, just betting accounts that will be 'linked' by the bookmakers concerned if the IP address or otherwise is the same on both accounts. This can lead to problems with the accounts BOTH being limited or even closed should EITHER one of them turn a profit (my friends sometimes want to use my laptop for their own bets).

    I am aware of IP addresses & can counter the different accounts being accessed from the same IP by simply turning my router on and off prior to each different account visit.

    My query is:

    (1) What are the other ways of identifying the laptop's 'identity'? - I have read cookies & also System scans (upon account registration - covered in their T&C's) could identify my laptop to the different accounts...is this true? And are there any other ways the laptop/pc could be identified?

    &

    (2) What can be done to stop/limit the websites being able to identify the hardware being used, & not link the different accounts accessed from the same laptop/pc? - I have briefly read about proxy servers, do these disguise both the IP AND laptop identity, or is there anything I can do to 'turn off' the computer giving out any information to identify it?

    Many thanks,
    Andy :)

    Since your question involves circumventing restrictions put in place by a website we cannot assist you with your query. While it may or may not be illegal, it would be a violation of those website's terms of use. Therefore I am closing the thread.
