How do I block bots and crawlers?

Cloudflare's data sources will help reduce the number of bad bots and crawlers hitting your site automatically (not all). If you would like to place a block of your own for a bad bot or crawler, you can block them by IP in your Firewall app.

In addition, customers that are on a paid plan can look at turning on Cloudflare's Web Application Firewall (WAF) to further help reduce the threat of bad bots and crawlers that don't follow good behavior guidelines.

Still not finding what you need?

The Cloudflare team is here to help. 95% of questions can be answered using the search tool, but if you can’t find what you need, submit a support request.
