Private IP addresses are logged in as client.ip

Hi, we are experiencing strange issue with the APM error logs since ~9AM UTC. We are getting Private IP addresses logged inside client.ip
They seem to be coming from Amazon but are not our machines.

What could be causing this issue?

Kibana version : 7.5.0

Elasticsearch version : 7.5.0

APM Server version : 7.5.0

APM Agent language and version : apm-rum-angular v3

Browser version : any

Original install method (e.g. download page, yum, deb, from source, etc.) and version : Cloud version

Fresh install or upgraded from other version? :

Is there anything special in your setup? : No

Errors in browser console (if relevant) : No

Hi @akosanovic,
by default the APM Server captures the IP address and User Agent of the real user when requests are sent from the RUM agent, and the IP address for requests from backend services.
You can disable this by setting apm-server.capture_personal_data: false in the apm-server.yml.
