Does Surfshark support IPv6?

At the moment, Surfshark does not support the IPv6 protocol. Having IPv6 enabled on your network might make it complicated to connect to our servers in some situations.

You will not notice any difference in your daily activities if you turn IPv6 off, as there are few use cases for IPv6 yet.


How to check if your network has IPv6?

  1. Use Surfshark's IP leak test to check your IP address.

  2. This page will check your current public IP address.

    If you have IPv6 running on your network, you will see a lengthy IP address consisting of letters, digits, and colons.

  3. If you don't have IPv6, you will see a shorter IP address consisting only of digits and dots.

If you see that IPv6 is active on your network, please disable it so you can use Surfshark without any possible interruptions.

You can disable IPv6 directly on Windows, macOS, Android, and Linux devices.
