Can anyone confirm if Norton 360 VPN supports IPV6. I turned on VPN, got a different ip4 address from my original ipv4 address but when I go to https://whatismyipaddress.com/, it showed me the new IPv4 address and my current IPv6 address. Using the IPV6 address, the website was able to identify my actual location. This was surprising to me as this defeats the whole purpose of the VPN!
I followed these instructions to disable IPv6 for now.
- Go to Apple - > System Preferences -> Network
- Select the first network connection you see listed on the left-hand side, then click the Advanced button.
- Go to the TCP/IP tab at the top
- Beside "Configure IPv6", set it to "Link-local Only"
After following this step, the website above was no longer able to identify my location or see my ipv6 address.
