I was playing anonymously and I think i won on a cheat. How is that determined?

I was black, how did it know?

I've seen some players that appear to take an unusually long time in rapid games leading me to suspect getting help from a chess engine, but was a little surprised when I saw this. Note: I am 63 years old, only been playing about 2 years, so I am not that good but it helps keep me occupied.

There is a special program on this website which "scans" players for using the engine.
