About This File
This AE detector uses a cookie to detect multiple accounts. The cookie lasts for either an admin configurable time (default 24 months), or until the user clears their cookies.
You can have a AE detection notify your staff by any combination of the following:
- a PC
- a new thread
- A report
The check is performed during the login process, and the user won't even notice anything is different if they're using an AE.New Permissions (under General Moderator Permissions):
- Bypass Alert Ego Checking
- View Alert Ego Report
Please ensure you assign the "View Alert Ego Report" to your moderator/administrator groups so they can see the Alter Ego Reports.
