      Description

      There is an ongoing discussion about visibility of IP address data on several Moodle sites like profil or reports. Specially German data protection officers are very criticla against access to such data.

      Its possible to hide IP address from profile page, but ist visible for admins always. IP addresses are shown on report pages without an option to hide them

      Here are two suggestions:
      1. Hide IP address on profile page also for admins if the setting is done
      2. Add an option to hide IP address for all users on every page. I've not checked which pages show the ip address. So i can't tell you where it should be hidden.
