Validate votes on Norr Competition

I am using your Norr Competition Joomla plugin.( demo.norrnext.com/norrcompetition/competitions/beautiful-earth ) However, I am encountering a problem of suspicious voting activity. I would like to know if there is a way to identify multiple voting from the same person or a group. We have enabled IP validation, however, It appears they use different IPs and browsers may be using VPNs. Is there any other way to identify these activities?

Hi Irantha,
Unfortunately, there is no other way to identify the activities since it is technically hard to realize.
You can try to enable Captcha or allow only registered users to vote.

Thanks Eugene for the quick reply. What does contain in UserAgent details? What does it mean when they are identical for several likes?

Thanks

Different users can have the same UserAgent. The idea with UserAgent was to allow voting to different users within the same IP.
It might be important in various situations like university or dormitory where a lot of computers have the same IP and etc. and it is impossible to limit users by IP.
