IP Security Options

Web security is a serious issue and that’s partly why you can restrict access to your WPX account by specific IP addresses.

This can easily be done by logging in to WPX and going to My Account (1) → Security (2);

From this menu, you have control over IP Access;

Your Current IP Address (1) is displayed at the top of the menu, if you are not aware of your public IP.

Examples of Rule Formats & Example Rules (2) are found in this box, if you are not sure what formats are acceptable.

Control IP Access (3) from this box with new rules; place IPs here to block access to your account.

The Active Rules box (4) keeps track of all currently blocked IPs.

The Login Notifications (5) can be enabled from the toggle switch.

Important: Before you restrict access to any IP address, be SURE to check and confirm what kind of IP address you have; either static or dynamic – check with your ISP if unsure.

If you have a Dynamic IP Address, this means that your IP can change at any time. In this case, we recommend that you do not use the IP Access controls because you may block yourself from your account!

If you are unsure what kind of IP address you have, or how to find out, please contact your Internet Service Provider for further information.
