You tube shows sites based on a another network device

Posted

While examining a product through youtube.com on my desktop workstation I then went to another device my Android device and when I opened youtube I saw sites showing sites for what I was examining.

The Android device never searched for the product I was examining on the Desktop. The only commonality is my home network which uses Vmedia inc ISP.

Is that normal how is youtube.com maintaining the information to show sites I would be interested in on another device that I never searched the product?

You aren't using Sync to sync data between connected devices as that could be a possible cause ?

Otherwise this might be because you have the same IP being connected to the same router.

I do not use sync.

It is not possible to have two IP workstations using the same IP. The only IP in common is my public IP 198.251.56.153.
