Remember that Microsoft charges for static ip addresses so if you’re not using them or you don’t need them to be static ips, remove them and save yourself a few dollars. We also wanted to remove our static IP addresses because we wanted to reduce our attack surface.

By changing IP address every time a computer boots up, it means that a hacker would need to figure out what our ip addresses are and then try to hack into them in the time that those machines are running.
