To maintain the privacy of contacts within the HubSpot database, we will be sunsetting the ability to pull the IP address of Contacts via HubSpot’s API or the exports of email event (emailEvents) records.
Geo-location data (e.g. city, state, region, country, timezone, etc.) derived from the IP address will continue to remain accessible via the API and on contact records within HubSpot.
The sunset of the IP address from HubSpot’s APIs will affect the following:
Email APIs: Event APIs & Event Exports All existing IP location data will be purged from our datastores.
Contacts APIs: The `ip_address` contact property will be removed. This property will no longer be accessible via the API. Associated IP location properties will continue to function as they do today.
Subscriptions API Timelines: IP data will still be stored for subscriptions compliance with a 3 year Time to Live, but will not be publicly accessible.
When is this happening?
The sunset will take place on Monday, May 15, 2019.
