Google Multiple Accounts Ban

Wed Jul 12, 2017 4:05 pm

Can Google track you from the images you use (screenshots/icons/in app images) ?

Because I've recently lost a bunch accounts that I opened with rdp and everything was okay, but they got all banned in the same day !
(one more thing, I use reverse engineering to reskin)

Of course, first if you use the same image, its very simple.
Then, if you left EXIF data on your image, you are screwed.

Simple put: one can tell, from all your posts, you're not a coder as you're doing it the wrong way.

First, change everything, app, devices, planet and find a solution that works!

Then, and only then, start adding stuff till you find the "bug".

I just read about EXIF data and found that it's related to cameras (when you take a pic it registers EXIF data...) Does it get registered also on images we create with photoshop? and can they link to your PC when adding these images to google play?

I ask that because I always create images and all in the same PC and then upload them to google play using Virtual Machine

Thanks

Thank you for your answer
I am not talking about using the same images. I am talking about using different images and wondering if they can track different images and know their source and then ban your accounts ..

Put your image here and if you find some unique data, it is from your pc: http://metapicz.com/
If you not use the same images, I think Google can't track you right now...

I had this EXIF and images data related thing Paranoia and if it can be a cause for ban, I searched a lot about it and found a good program for deleting it called "FileMind"

BUT I can tell you my fiend that Photoshop/illustrator based photos and images doesn't contain any of these data, And
IT SURELY NOT A REASON FOR GOOGLE TO BAN ACCOUNTS, unless you use photos from google images without licenses and repeat uploading it in multiple accounts of yours.

@jalu Useful website, thanks mate!

Agree with TheGameChanger, images from PC aren`t the only reason for ban... never had such problems...
