Add an option to hide IP address in forum messages
« on: November 15, 2013, 12:49:33 pm »
I have just noticed that when I post a messages to the forum it records and posts my ip address on to the bottom right of the message. There should be a toggle to turn this feature off especially as I am lucky enough to have a fixed IP address. My ip address could be used by a malicious persons to attack my home network.

Do you see the IP addresses of the other posters? What makes think that others can see yours?

VPN is the best choice to hide your ip adress. I use this VPN https://www.waselpro.com/en/ to unblock sites freely among different servers. all servers are encrypted, this one worked great for me.
