How to resolve Your IP has been flagged for potential security violations jetpack issue on WordPress step by step tutorial
Follow below step to resolve your concern regarding your ip has been flagged for potential security violations
Step 1 :-
Do you think that the IP showing in your jetpack error is not your ip? Trust me you are wrong 🙂 :-
if you think that the IP showing in your panel is not your’s then you are wrong, there are two type of IP’s you have 1st is your local IP and second is your public IP,
- Local IP:- You can check your local IP simply opening your computer’s network setting or typing Ipconfig in your cmd window. If i show you in a simple way any IP between these are your local IP addresses 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255 or 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255 or 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255.
- Public IP:- Your public IP is the IP which is provided to you by your service provider. To check your public IP just open your browser and open the website whatismyipaddress.com . It will show your public IP address like below image.
Just note (copy )above Public IP address in your notepad or any paper.
Step 2 :-
If jetpack have disabled your IP for security violations then you must open your WordPress from a different computer or install any VPN extension tool in your browser to change your public IP address. In your Chrome browser install hotspot shield VPN tool from here:- click here . And enable your VPN.
Note : If you have another computer or have any other way to access your WordPress then you don’t need to install the VPN you can skip this step and go to the next step.
It will change your public IP, to check if your public IP is changed or not you can check it here whatismyipaddress.com
Now open your WordPress admin panel and Go to jetpack settings. (this time you will not see any error like “Your IP has been flagged for potential security violations” because your IP has been changed in Second step. )
Step 4 :-
Now click on Security tab and then click on down error in front of Protect and fill your public IP
After this step you can disable your VPN and you will never see the error “Your IP has been flagged for potential security violations” again.
And if you’re unlucky enough who is not able to understand above steps and locked from dashboard. You can edit your WP_config file or go to WordPress.com & whitelist your I.P. For WordPress.com method, refer to the official
