    May I ask why you would take that decision?

    A message is obviously inferior to real privacy protection. According to GDPR, you cannot prevent users from using your system just because they don’t agree to your privacy-intruding terms, rendering your message possibly unusable. A legal grey zone, admittedly, because you might argue having a legitimate interest in keeping a site secure and therefore storing IP addresses.

    Maybe there’s a compelling reason to remove such useful feature as IP obfuscation?

    Thanks for your response. My opinion is unchanged, I’d rather have obfuscation than notification. It’s a core principle of GDPR – don’t store plain personal data wherever possible.

    That said, I appreciate it a lot you took the time to put out a dedicated FAQ that explains your reasoning.
