    Hi Roger,

    I am sorry for the inconvenience. You are requested to go to network settings and from there you can enable IPv6 once again.

    Try this and let me know if it works out or not!

    Hi again Nathaniel,

    Let me try to eliminate your confusion. Right now we do not support IPv6 so you need to disable IPv6 of your system by using “IPv6 Protection” from Settings. We are almost ready to enable IPv6 on PureVPN network. It is in under testing and will be launched soon.
    Hope thing are clear now, but if you still have confusion, feel free to write to us OR you can also join us on live chat, we are available 24/7 for your assistance.

    Hi Nathaniel,

    Let me answer your query.
    Actually Our system is designed to operate for both IPV4 and IPV6 users thats why IPV6 users need to check that box. Also, Our team is currently working to provide full IPV6 support and hopefully it will be available soon. I would suggest you to read our blog for details about IPv6, here is the link of our blog:
    Hopefully, this will give you all answers, if you still have any question or confusion, drop us a line, we will be more than happy to assist you 🙂

      OK, I’m confused because I still don’t know what your IPv6 support actually looks like. Does this box disable IPv6 to avoid the leakage? It sounds like PureVPN still doesn’t have fully working IPv6 support (I note all of your Linux configuration pages end with a note saying to disable IPv6).

    But what, pray tell, does this checkbox do? Your VPN should be tunneling my IPv6 traffic by default, but obviously that’s not the case. It seems like this page is purposely vague about what the “leak protection” actually does.
