XF 1.5 Current visitors listed with error


When I call up the list of current visitors, guests and google are listed with "(error)". Please see attatched screenshot.

Could this be a problem with my settings or have I found a bug?

This is as designed (and a recent change).

If a user, whether logged in or not, is viewing a page they don't have access to, users with the ability to bypass user privacy will see that.
I have already adjusted my settings so that at least some guests are no longer shown with "error", however I can't seem to change it for all guests and robots. Where exactly must I permitt usage so that all guests and robots are shown normally?

It's not clear what you're asking.

All guests have the same permissions so some of them must just be accessing pages they don't have permission to view.

Or potentially pages that are invalid. It's any page that returns an error -- this could be a permission error, a not found error, or even something else.
