Question: The essential question here is how does Facebook know I am the same unit that is trying to create a new account, even after I have deleted all cookies/history/cache from my browser, and even after installing a completely new browser and trying to create a new account from a completely newly installed browser?
History: Facebook has deactivated my primary account. The message is "doesn't follow our community standards."
What I am trying to achieve: Create an entirely new and different user account.
What I have tried:
- CHROME: Logging out, trying to create a new account using a new email. Produces the same message, and it doesn't work.
- CHROME: Deleting everything, every cookie, history, and cached content. Create new user with a different email. Same problem, my account has been deactivated (see screenshot)
- Installed OPERA, started from scratch. New username, new email. I switch wi-fi from my phone tether to my house wi-fi. Now I have a completely brand new browser, with a completely different IP. I create a brand new user, new name, birthday, email, password. Whamo! - same message. Definitely not cached. They are tracking me in some way other than a browser cookie.
Browser cookies only work within the same browser. But I started from scratch using a newly installed different browser (Opera), connected to a completely different network, and used completely different credentials. They still have identified me. How?
