Gmail/Youtube detects when using IMACROS

Post by jayonlinemethod » Tue Jun 16, 2015 5:17 pm

Hi, I just noticed today, just today, I'm automating the login process for Youtube, 100% of the time my accounts will be asked for a "CITY which you frequently login" or ask you to re-verify the account with new phone number.

I'm using dedicated Proxy to login to YouTube with imacros, However it doesn't seem to work now.

I tried the script manually and copy what the imacros doing, I put the proxy, login youtube and input username and password and its working 100% of the time!! I'm not getting the re-verification thing, however when I use Imacros, they will ask the reverification thing 100% of the time.

So my question, is this possible? for youtube/gmail to detect that I'm using imacros to automate the login???

if yes, can you offer suggestions or solutions on how to avoid this?

note: I'm using dedicated proxy, Clear command, pauses between actions. Using Firefox browser latest version.

Thank you,
Jay

catch(err){}

But I got another problem which is,

OK, we finally have your FCI..., then I can give my Feedback...

For your last 3 Errors, pfff, post your Script, there is nothing we can tell you about those Errors if you don't post your Script... :idea:

About your Question if Gmail and YouTube can detect that you are using iMacros, I would think NOT, iMacros is using your Browser Default User Agent (even if it's possible to specify an iMacros UA, I recall from reading some Thread or Wiki Page), search the Wiki for "User Agent" and you have some Test Page where you can test your UA... Those Sites could still determine that you are using some Web-Automation Tool, iMacros for example, by analyzing your Click-Click-Typing Speed...

You mention using 'CLEAR' in your Script, that will call for Verification Steps from those Sites, you didn't mention if you cleared the Cookies as well before logging in manually...

I don't exactly understand what you mean with "a dedicated Proxy"..., do you always get the same IP-Address from that Proxy...? What does "dedicated Proxy" mean...?

And even if you get the "last City" Question, you can automatically detect it in your Script and fill it automatically...

But post your Script for some more educated Help (from reading it, I won't run it, at least not with the 'CLEAR' Command, I rely on existing Cookies for some Sites and I'm not clearing all my Cookies every time sbd has a Pb with some specific Site, forcing me to spend half a day re-entering Password and Security Codes sent to me by SMS...), but I might have a clearer idea of what you are doing and what the Pb might be...

And for your 3rd Error, about 155>150 (Line), once you get the RuntimeError, you can click below on the small 'Edit Macro' Icon/Button (left) below the RuntimeError that will take you directly to the faulty Line of Code...

Its not youtube or imacros

Its your proxy
The location of your proxy is different to the location where the acc usually signs in from that's why you a prompted with verification
