I'll go through periods where I get this Cloudflare "Verifying connection click the box to verify you're human" window that shows up, then months will go by and it doesn't show up again.

Any insights?

Hi,
i just implemented Cloudflare on my company SaaS, I can give you some info on that.
Basically, Cloudflare gives a score to each connection depending a several parameters such as your IP address, your provider and your location.
If you get this checkbox from time to time, it is likely your location and/or IP address is sometimes identified as potentially bad (for example if someone is using it to send a lot of requests).
For you, it means nothing bad except that you need to check a box.
If you get this page a lot (and not everyone else), you might need to check if someone is using your connection to do bad things and change your wireless password, but most of the times it's just a coincidence and there's nothing to worry about.

Interesting.

It's a further pain because about 1/3 to half the time the checkbox doesn't come up and I have to backpage and try again.

I know - First World problems.

I forgot to mention, if you are using a proxy (such as a VPN), it is its IP that is seen by Cloudflare, so it is likely that if someone else is using the same poxy has the same IP.
