I’m new to networking security issues, so there might be a lot of basic stuff I don’t get.
I own the site: https://www.klit-andersen.com
Some times when I try to access it to maintain the content or even just visit for testing how it looks, I run into a cloudflare pages that asks me to “complete one more step” where I need to check that I’m not a robot.
I found this page regarding the issue: Understanding Cloudflare Challenge Passage (Captcha) – Cloudflare Help Center.
I’ve tried to look up my IP to remove it from the list. I could not find it. I made a whitelist of my IP anyway. That did not help.
Then a friend installed a VPN add-on. When I use that, there is no problem. But I think my PC slowed down so I disabled it. And for a period everything was working fine - even without the VPN.
But now the problem has come back.
Sure - I can use VPN, but I still think my PC is to slow with that. And I mean - if my IP is not listed (and therefore I can’t remove / whitelist it).then why on earth do I keep running into this “I’m not a robot” check if I don’t use VPN?
I don’t know what made it work for a short period without VPN, and I don’t understand why it has come back when my IP is not listed.
Please try to explain in plain words. I’m not good with technical network related terms.
