    Quit trying to be so negative about it. Other cdn's like bit mitigate do things like this as well.


    Read this.


    "I'm Under Attack" will add additional protections to a site that is under attack and needs DDoS protection and mitigation. If you're under attack and have this feature enabled during the attack, visitors will receive an interstitial page for about five seconds while we analyze the traffic to make sure it is a legitimate human visitor.
    Note: Visitors to the site must have JavaScript and Cookies enabled to pass the interstitial page.

    To enable I'm Under Attack mode, see How do I enable I'm Under Attack mode.
    Why am I getting a "Checking your Browser before accessing" message before entering a site on Cloudflare?
    The "Checking your browser before accessing example.com" page occurs when the site owner has turned on this I'm Under Attack Mode setting. The page will generally go away and grant you access to the site after 5 seconds.
    Note: You will need to have both JavaScript and Cookies turned on in your browser to pass the check. The check is in place to make sure that you are not part of a botnet.
    5 seconds to access a site is not negative! One second would be acceptable. 5 seconds is like using dialup!

    Well which would you prefer? Wait 5 seconds or try to visit the site only to find it's down for who knows how long thanks to a DDOS?

    Also you can contact the owner of the website, they can toggle that feature on or off via cloudflare.

    CloudFlare also runs fast, privacy-oriented DNS resolvers at IPv4 addresses 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1. I use them, and they're fast and reliable. See this August 2018 blog post for more info: Introducing DNS Resolver, 1.1.1.1 (not a joke).
    HTH,
    --Ed--

    I've tried this once, and I see no difference between speeds. I honestly believe this is nothing more than for Cloudfare to watch what other people are doing. It's a violation of privacy, honestly, and I would NOT recommend anyone use those DNS Servers.

    In the case of this site, I can see why they have done it and I probably should not discuss the particular site anyway. I made a schoolboy error in displaying url in my original post here.

    My point stands though - the time is excessive. If this proliferates to other users, life will become very tedious.

    You only get that message if the site is under attack or incorrectly configured, I've been running Vista and Eight forums through Cloudflare for 12 months now and have never seen or heard of anybody seeing that kind of message.

    According to the cloudflare articles, you have to set your site to "I'm under attack mode" for those messages to trigger.
    How do I enable Cloudflare Support


    1. Log into your Cloudflare account.
    2. If you have multiple websites in your account, select the website you wish to protect.
    3. Click the Firewall app in the top menu.
    4. Under Security Level, click I'm Under Attack! in the dropdown menu.

    I get that DDoS alert regularly my Android mobile (6.0.1) with FF Focus on the register site, but not with the W10 desktop PC using Chrome, FF or Edge.
    Ironically I use the Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 DNS service on both (Android app came out last week)...

    Interesting, I just went to the register on my tab s2 (7.0) with opera, no alert.

    Just tried with chrome on the same tablet, no alert.

    Just checked it out on my phone in Chrome, Edge and Opera Mini. Alerts in Chrome and Edge, nothing in Opera Mini with mild data saving on (so going via their proxy servers).
    I've got some hunches, so I'll have an experiment with the browser settings and see if it makes any difference.

    Hello, admins.

    Please, do smth. with that Cloudflare nonsence protection. Please, put this protection into the garbage trash and forget forever.
    "Cloudflare" is not about privacy/security. Please, refer to the TOR Forum and refresh your knowlege.

    This much annoing "tech" is not far from the Google's captha, it's stuck very often and agressively stop from reading your exсellent forum.

    At least, "Cloudflare" is impossible buggy on Firefox and well encrypted DNS.

    To users, respectfully: Never use DNS from monopolies like Google, Cloudflare, Cisco (OpenDNS), etc.
    Also don't use TRR/DoH - a DNS systems built-in directly into the browsers.
    Use only encrypted DNS, like amazing dnscrypt-proxy project and your browsing will be much-much safer.

    Best regards.
