WangGuard
[resolved] Reported Proxy (2 posts)

    Have a number of Reported Proxy notices and one is my own IP. What is this feature actually telling us? is it saying the user is using a proxy or the user is using a known spamming proxy? I am running through Cloudflare so presumed that it was just informing of the proxy server, but would appreciate clarification

    Thanks

    Hi websitu,

    Yes, that's mean the user is using a proxy, but not necessarily mean a proxy Spam.

    If you use CloudFlare, you need to deactivate IP check in WangGuard settings because CloudFlare don't report the real IP and WangGuard can block all registrations.

    All CloudFlare IPs are white listed, but if CloudFlare add new IPs and thy are not white listed in WangGuard, you can have many false positive.

    Kind regards
