I just recently decided to spoof my user agent in my browser. This is a permanent spoof via browser settings. They only thing I am doing is changing my operating system. It’s a personal privacy choice. Since doing this though, I can not seem to access websites that are behind cloudflare. I get the Checking your browser before accessing “website.com”. And it just keeps refreshing that page. Having the default user agent fixes the issue, but I would like to keep my “customized” user agent. It is a valid user agent, so the problem wouldn’t be a bad user agent string.
My question is, what other options might I need to adjust to keep cloudflare from thinking I am a bot? And not get stuck on this checking browser message. I assuming it’s the DDOS protection that is doing this.
