Can I be tracked with VPN

By DavidTheOnlyGod ·
Hi
I want to register on a game, but the developer wouldnt let me. Its a stupid game, cyclingsimulator. I can register from any other device even in my house, just from my phone he blocked me somehow. That is strange, I am using a VPN so he doesnt recognise me, but its still not working, somehow they know it is me. Maybe he tracks my phone after the phones IP adress? Can the IP adress of the phone be changed so he or the system doesnt recognise this device? Thank you

https://www.google.com/search?q=Can+I+be+tracked+with+VPN+site:security.stackexchange.com says yes you can be tracked.

Remember that those the represent and sell VPNs may not be totally honest.

I want you to remain honest with us here. No one here will help others try to defeat or get around blocks like you mention. What I find is that usually the person who is asking knows why they were blocked but rarely tells us.

To get into the game, make peace with the developer.

There is another situation here. The developer is an idiot. He banned me and my friend because we shared some potentials of cyclists on messenger. He is stupid. Yes, he banned me, but the reason is stupid and the reason the same. But I dont feel like I need to go to explain every detail in here. If you dont want to help, so be it. If I knew I did something wrong, I wouldnt ask. I cant make any peace with him, he is not understanding. Once I donated and asked for some free scouts(some prize for donating in the game) but he said I asked for too many and he bans me fron donating cause I am wasting his time. Then I told him he isnt worth my money and banned me for 1 year just for this...

At least I would like to know if he tracks my device or something. I am completely honest. You dont know him, but he is an arse.

The tracking question is answered.

I supplied prior answers to the can you be tracked when you use a VPN so that's answered.

As to what you wrote about the developer it appears you won't be making peace and may have sealed your fate for years as you dug a deeper hole here. I shouldn't have to tell you that they can google for discussions about their product and may find this discussion.

Given that it's very likely your interaction with them is recent it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes for them to think "Again?" and double down on your ban.

Definitely not the way to make peace.

Ok

I dont care about making peace with such garbages.

But thanks for your answer.

Reading about the relationship between you and the owner of the game, I really wonder why you want to register (again). Doesn't seem to serve any useful purpose.

Not useful

by DavidTheOnlyGod In reply to Re: register

Thats true whay you say. Ofc because he banned me without reason and I saw people were really happy about it, like so much hate and all just because I was better than them...I tried to create a lot of new teams. Apparently they have some problems with that, and I wanted to take revenge. But na, he blocked me after I did 40 or so. But yes, although Im angry and hurt, it doesnt serve to any purpose.

I wondered for my knowledge at least to know how he traced my device because I use a VPN...I not always did ofc...Just since 2 weeks

Since a VPN will assign you a new IP address and run your data through different servers, that makes tracking you very, very difficult. Even if someone was somehow able to get to your IP address, it wouldn't actually be yours, but one that's hidden behind the VPN's server.
