We calculate prefixes of the IP addresses to anonymize them as follows:</p> <ul> <li>For IPv4 addresses, we remove the last two bytes to anonymize them. For example, an IP address such as <code>12.34.56.78</code> would be logged as <code>12.34.0.0</code>.</li> <li>For IPv6 addresses, we remove all bytes but the first two. For example, an IP address such as <code>2001:db8:85a3:8d3:1319:8a2e:370:7344</code> would be logged as <code>2001:db8:0:0:0:0:0:0</code> (short <code>2001:0db8::</code>).</li> </ul>
