Connect Your App using IP Address Authentication [DEPRECATED]

IP Address Authentication has been deprecated and will not be enabled for new customers. Existing customers who currently have IP Address Authentication enabled may continue to use this feature. If IP Address Authentication functionality is changed or removed from service at some point, customers who currently use it will be notified beforehand and given ample time to migrate.

When users connect to your app using IP Address Authentication, Auth0 checks whether the request is coming from within a specified range of IP addresses.
