An update on IP Masking implementation[edit]

Hello friends! We have new information on IP Masking for you. Thank you for being patient as the project unfolds.

IP masking hides the IP addresses of unregistered editors on Wikimedia projects, fully or partially, from everyone except those who need access to fight spam, vandalism, harassment and disinformation.

So far, we have had conversations on why we are masking IPs and the tools you will need to continue fighting abuse. What is up next is, we want to share with you details about the implementation itself.

This update answers some likely questions you may have about who gets to view IP addresses and the various IP Masking implementation approaches and how each of them will impact the communities.

Please see this section for the latest information. If you need a background on IP Masking, there’s a summary here for you.


Best regards,
