Can we use fiverr in Public places where IP's are same?


#1

Hi,
I want to know that can we use Fiverr in public places like universities, school, colleges and other places where we know that many other people are present who are using Fiverr.
Is it safe to use Fiverr on these places?
Please help me with your suggestion.

Thanks

It’s probably better to avoid it if you can, but it should help to clear the temp files (all of them, not just cookies) before you open the site and after you’ve logged off the site. I would recommend everything but the browser history in private. If you’re in a public setting, just clear it all. That should help, but I do know Fiverr uses IP addresses for “things.” Not sure exactly how they fit into the security though.

If they put a lot of weight on the IP address that would be bad, but if that was the case my speculation is that people at schools wouldn’t have an account very long. I would hope the security is more sophisticated than that.Also, many systems aggregate IPs anyway, but I also know that automated security can get weird.

If you’re using a public computer, it’s definitely not the best (could have something like a keylogger installed).

Sorry I couldn’t give a more definitive answer. Basically try to be vigilant no matter where you’re accessing the site. Security is always important. And try to avoid accessing it where a lot of people are already on it, if you can.

Oh, and always, always uncheck that “stay logged in” box.

You could try asking CS, but I’m not sure you’d get anyone who knows how that part works (or would be willing to tell you, for security reasons).

it is better not to use as it can cause problems to your account.

A Fiverr account can be used on different IP’s but you can’t use different Fiverr’s accounts on same IP.

It mainly depends upon detection of Fiverr.

Don’t worry it will be safe.

Just make sure are you using the Fiverr where Fiverr’s traffic is high then it will effect other wise it is safe use where Fiverr’s traffic is low.

I’ve used, am now using 5r from hotels, smartphones, work, etc. I have yet to have issues.

I’ve been living out of hotels for the past month, also used connections at Starbucks, restaurants, etc.

My account is still working, 5r hasn’t disabled me.

Just saying. . . .

Very interesting, I haven’t even thought of it from that perspective.

However, I believe that Fiverr fully realizes that some of their Sellers may be World Travelers, Backpackers and Location - Independent Sellers who have no other option than to use the public IPs, so I believe that they have sophisticated their tracking system to match that understanding.

In my personal opinion, I don’t think you’ll run into problems for using Fiverr on a Public IP Address.

It’s worth asking the CS about it however.
