Many ISP services, such as AOL, use proxy servers. As a result, a user's IP address may "rotate" randomly. This may cause unreliable behavior of your session if the IP address is being used to check validity.

I agree, that's why it is possible to check only a part of IP address or exclude IP from fingerprint in suggested code.
