Have just had a 'Cloudflare checking your browser' screen when entering the site. Is this the admin adding an extra layer of protection, or does it emanate from elsewhere and we should beware?

Update - Information from from an acquaintance of mine who is an IT professional :


"[FONT=&quot]I've seen a few sites using this since Covid kicked off - basically, big companies are using this sort of software to protect themselves from DDOS attacks, or to avoid misconstruing spikes in user interest (due to users having nothing else to do) as DDOS attempts. " [For any not fluent in IT-speak. DDOS = Distributed Denial of Service i.e. trying to bring a site down by overloading it][/FONT]
