I used an online software where I can call my own mobile phone via TOR.
I tried to call several times but was then rejected, with the error message that my computer has tried to call too often.
Does the software konw that I use TOR or can it detect my exact fingerprint (my browser/computer)?
The latter would be really devestating to be honest!
Yes. The web server can detect that your request is coming from a Tor exit node. Some web servers use this information to block access. Maybe this is what happened.
No. The Tor Browser prevents this.
Well, did you restart the browser between attempts? Your IP and cookies only get refreshed when you restart it (and there’s a “New Identity” button in the browser). If you just refresh the page, or even not refresh it at all, your identity is preserved, which is intentional.
Yes, I chose “New Identity”, this is what is frightening me so!
It’s probably because someone else has connected to the same website through the same exit node previously. I doubt that that there’s more to it, not on a random website.
