    Angry How is google tracking me through VPN's????

    Here's the problem...

    I need to make multiple gmail accounts using my virtual private network account but im having a problem.

    I signed up for a virtual private network account and then created a new server with a clean IP. and logged in via my remote desktop.

    Once I had access to my new server....I then created a gmail account using the new server. Everything went fine.

    No security issues from google. Everything went smooth.

    so...

    THEN I created a second server with my VPN and then they asked me for my phone number to verify my account. hu?

    How could this be?

    Obviously google was able to detect I was the same person but how?

    I then preformed a test and tried accessing a new server I created from another computer. I created a gmail account. Everything went fine and google did not ask for any verification phone number.

    And using this computer I tried again with a new server and once again they asked.

    I dont get it. Im connecting through a VPN..

    Im not doing ANYTHING else on these servers BUT creating a gmail account.

    The IPS are clean (they are no blacklisted).

    HOW are they making the connection and how can I get around it????

    I don't want to be mean but...

    I'm kind of reluctant of helping you on this one as the problem you're describing tells me that you are, possibly, a spammer. I can't think of any other reaons why you would want to create multiple gmail accounts using a VPN.

    If you're creating these accounts to use some Google services which are only allowed for one and only one account, then you'd be breaking the Terms of Service which I don't think is a good idea.

    Now, maybe you have a perfect explanation and I'm just a bit obsessed with spammers due to the amount of them we have to get rid of on a daily basis... If so, then I apologise and I'm sure that you'll prove me wrong

    Google tracker works easily and smoothly and if anyone try to make multiple accounts for a business purpose by using VPN. It reacted and creates duplication or gives unusual activities error for a particular address.

    I too believe the intentions in this case are not good, glad google is working good. However I may be completely wrong

    You don't need a VPN to make multiple gmail accounts. You can easily get new emails using 33mail.com also.

    There are only two ways to track you. Your IP. And with cookies.
