How to disable IPv6 on any device?

This guide will show you how to manually disable IPv6 address support on any device.


When IPv6 is enabled, it can drastically slow down your connection speed, cause unstable connection issues, or make it impossible to connect to the VPN server at all. Therefore, disabling IPv6 can be very helpful if you are experiencing any connection issues while using Surfshark.


Select your device from the list below for detailed instructions on how to disable IPv6.


You probably noticed that there are no iOS devices in the mentioned device list. Sadly, at the moment there is no way of disabling IPv6 on an iOS device. However, you can disable IPv6 directly on your router through the admin panel, or by contacting your internet service provider.
