How to disable IPv6 on Android

In this article, you will learn how to disable IPv6 on your Android device. Since Surfshark does not support IPv6 addresses, we recommend disabling IPv6 as it may cause connectivity issues. On Android devices, it is possible to disable IPv6 on mobile networks only.

NOTE: Your Android graphical interface might differ slightly from the screenshots.

Do the following to disable IPv6 on an Android device:

  1. Launch the Settings app.

  2. Tap on Network and Internet.

  3. Tap on Mobile network.

  4. Scroll down and tap on Advanced.

  5. Tap on Access point names.

  6. Tap on your current mobile network.
