What is IPv6?

In the 1990s, a technology was developed that allowed for 128-bit IP addresses, resulting in almost 3.4×1038 unique IP addresses. Even if everyone on the planet owned a billion devices, it would be more than enough. The most recent version of the Internet Protocol is IPv6.

Internet protocols identify devices so that they can communicate with one another. However, IPv4 is currently the most popular Internet Protocol. All modern internet services and websites use it, and users must have IPv4 support.

IPv4 addresses, on the other hand, are running out of possibilities that’s why IPv6 is here to take the place of IPv4 once that occurs. Thankfully, it is not going to happen anytime soon. However, OysterVPN doesn’t offer you an IPv6 address but it will surely support and protect your IPv6 address from getting leaked or tracked by a third party.
