This app scans the database to detect members who have multiple accounts at your forum, and it will lists the results.

The detection method is being done in 3 ways.

1) Registration Method:

This method is based on scanning the members table for members who have registered more than one account at your forum from the same ip. The ip address in question will be displayed with the latest multiple account. When the ip address is clicked upon, it will display all the other aliases of that member.

2) Posting Method.

This method is based on scanning the posts table for members who have posted from more than one account at your forum from the same ip. The ip address in question will be displayed with the latest multiple account. When the ip address is clicked upon, it will display all the other aliases of that member as well as the posts and topics that they have posted.

3) Device Detection Method.

This is the most accurate mthod imo. Ipb adds a unique cookie to members devices when they log in to the forum. The cookie exparation date is set to one year and its unique string is associated with the users device and stored in the device table.  This means if someone logs in to your forum, logs out and then logs in using another account, then it can tell that it was the same person. It means that person has to use same machine, same browser irrespective of the ip address he/she is using. 

And last, but not least, this app adds an option to limit the number of registrations from the same ip.
