Auto Authorize IP

Learn and log new IPs on a device automatically.

What is IP Authorization

This Device Setting controls whether Control D will auto-learn (and log) all source IPs that interact with a Secure DNS resolver.

How to Use

Edit any device, and toggle the feature ON. In this mode, when you use your Secure DNS resolvers, newly seen source IPs will be automatically logged and stored alongside the Device.


If you have Legacy Resolver enabled, all stored IPs will be able to use your Legacy Resolvers. Disabling this feature will prevent IP logging behavior.


Legacy Resolver

If you have Legacy Resolver feature enabled on a Device, Auto IP Authorization cannot be disabled since it requires source IPs to be logged in order for Legacy DNS to function.
