Ip Addresses Changing

I recently made the change to allow my subdomain access to flow through Cloudflare in an effort to secure the site a little better through an organized console.

However, I have now noticed that Cloudflare is changing ALL of the IP addresses of customers logging in, which is not helping us track users and their logins effectively.

Why would the ip address of the person loggin in change to IP that points to Cloudflare instead of logging the actual IP the user is logging from?

It is really important that we log accurate ip’s as it’s how we control the very first line of account security.

Cloudflare is a reverse proxy, so all traffic comes through Cloudflare’s servers, but you can configure your server to look for the proper IP address headers:
