#1
Not Solved
Hello, here in Europe have inserted the GDPR and that prohibits me to save user ip's. How can I deactivate the storage of IP's?

GDPR doesn't prohibit you from storing user IP addresses. GDPR considers IP addresses as personal data. That's all.

It's not forbidden. You shouldn't store user IP addresses unless you need to. That applies to any user data, regardless of the law. Storing IP addresses for the general operation of the forum (user sessions, detecting ban evaders, etc.) is perfectly legal under EU law.

It is forbidden to collect these data without the users' knowledge and without declaring why and how the data is collected.
What you need is their consent, usually by having DSGVO declarations in your site's imprint (Impressum).
