In case you have missed it, the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has been laying the groundwork for IP Masking for some time now. We have had to do this due to changing norms and regulations on the internet.

Once IPs are masked, the addresses of editors who don't log in on Wikimedia projects will be fully or partially hidden. Those who need IP access to fight spam, vandalism, harassment and disinformation will still be able to view them.

We have recently announced the implementation strategy and next steps for the project. 

Community organisers who recruit, train and mentor Wikimedians, and want more information on the changes this could bring to the identification of anonymous editors, should please read and watch the IP Masking project page.

Best regards.
