Ipify (adblock)

Ublock ad blocker stops the Ipify plugin from working thus not allowing users to login/signup when they are using that specific adblocker.

Anyone have suggestions on how we can still record the ip?

No easy way. Only detecting the adblocker and asking the user to deactivate it.

Facing this same issue with Brave Browser. It seems to be blocking the Ipify plugin from working.

I want to avoid asking the user to do anything @vini_brito, instead I prefer to simply detect the error, then resume a different workflow.

So what I did was added a check to see if the workflow error contains “Ipify”, then call a different workflow. This seems to work fine, at least allows the user to signup.

Yup, a solution would be calling, from the browser, a server that is not blacklisted in adblockers’ list. Of course the server would have to be configured to return the IP.
