First, navigate to create a new giveaway or edit an existing giveaway.

Next, navigate to the Basic Info tab and tick the the Open security settings checkbox.

Next, tick the Block duplicate IP addresses checkbox. You can now enter How many times can a person join your contest? This will restrict how many times the same IP address can be used to join a contest. Example: if you set it to 5, then 5 different people with 5 unique email addresses can enter your contest.
