can freebie sites see your screen resolution/ browser?

What does it matter?

They can probably see what browser you're using, if they're set up that way, but not your screen resolution.

Why do you want to know?

Sometimes, freebie sites will put people and their refs on hold if they see certain patterns emerge.


all/majority of refs do same offer
they have similar passwords
patterns in usernames addresses/ account activites

and i was just wondering if they would put somebody on hold if all of their refs had the same screen resolution or browser. But before I started wondering about that, I wanted to see if they were able to see it (Screen res/browser) at all.

You're not hearing voices too, are you? ;)

I would do freebie sites only while wearing a tinfoil hat.

Of course they would use browser and screen resolution as unique identifiers to place someone on hold. I mean really, could there be that many people using IE @ 1024x768?
