Hello Gyes,
Its my first post here:)
What do you think, can biggest social media site like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest detect the imacro?

Only securing Post... 8)

(Never replied because of "CIM" (read my Sig...), still wondering why you decided to post in the 'iMacros for FF' Sub-Forum btw... as your Thread didn't have anything specific to FF only I would think, especially if you didn't even mention your FCI..., oops...!), but/and I don't help for Social Media anyway...)

>>>

But hum, your original Qt was still a bit interesting though... I think there are (or were..., as your OP is now from about 2 years ago, and you never bumped it...) already a few Threads about the "Discussion" on the Forum... And it's indeed a "Discussion", there is no way a Web-Site can with Certainty assess that you are using an iMacros Script, unless your Script is running from iMB (which has its specific "iMB" User Agent). [iMB = iMacros Browser]

But tja...!, any Web-Site Owner can find it a bit "suspicious" if some User manages to produce 10 Clicks on one Page within 1 sec, ah-ah...!, got the "Picture"...!? :twisted:
I think I can avoid all Detection "Tricks"/"Techniques" myself (and I've never-ever seen any implemented btw, apart from UA-Check, and Captcha of course..., hum and some Buttons/Elements that only get activated/enabled after some "manual" Typing and the 'TAG' Mode indeed sometimes fails to activate those Elements, the 'EVENT' Mode (now implemented for all Browsers, was not the case when you opened this current Thread => FCI relevant...!) then usually works fine in such Cases...), but on the other hand I think I would be able to assert with 99% Certainty if some (regular/recurring) User on my Site is using a Script... 8)
But for most Users, a few Random 'WAIT' Statements of a few Seconds between different Actions in a Script should be able to make your Script look like it's "Human"... :idea:
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
