Change of IP address

I receive the following message after every change of page (even from one page of list to another page on the same list) Your IP address has changed. For security reasons, please login again
This happens all the time.

Are you accessing from something like AOL? They use proxies that change between most page views and as phpList uses cookies, it sort of looses track of you when accessed via such a system.
My sites:-,,,
Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x

Check lines 160 to 164 of config.php, excerpted here:

Code: Select all
# to increase security the session of a user is checked for the IP address
# this needs to be the same for every request. This may not work with
# network situations where you connect via multiple proxies, so you can
# switch off the checking by setting this to 0
