What is an IP address?

An IP address is like a house number in the online world. Each internet-connected device has a unique IP address required for connections and communications. Since your online activities can be traced through your IP address, it's crucial to safeguard its privacy.


Think of IPv4 like the addresses on houses. It's the usual, classic "house number" for our gadgets, making sure every bit of data gets to the right device. An address like "" acts like a "city, street, house number", guiding the internet to the exact location.

But, similar to a bustling city reaching its limit in available addresses due to the growing number of houses, the internet is running out of IPv4 addresses. That's why, the new system, IPv6, is stepping onto the stage.


You can think of IPv6 as the new and updated system for assigning these numbers.In technical terms, where IPv4 uses 32 bits, resulting in about 4.3 billion possible addresses, IPv6 employs a 128-bit address system, offering over 340 undecillion (that's a number followed by 36 zeroes!) possible addresses.

This means we're unlikely to run out of internet "house numbers" anytime soon. You can check if your IP is IPv4 or IPv6 using the IP Checker Tool.

What is IPv6 Leak? What information is leaked?

An IPv6 leak is akin to a telltale informer in the online world. Even when you're using a VPN to conceal your online tracks, this leak can divulge your real IP address – akin to a secret fingerprint that can unveil your device, online activities, and even your location! This can occur if your VPN isn't configured correctly or doesn't encompass IPv6. So, if your online privacy is important to you, ensure your VPN is rock-solid and fully covers IPv6, just like X-VPN. Don't let the telltale informer compromise your anonymity!

How does our IPv6 leak test work?

In our IPv6 Leak Test, your browser attempts to initiate communication with an IPv6-only server. If the connection is successful, there's an IPv6 leak, meaning your VPN isn't working properly or you're unprotected. However, if the connection fails, it means you're either not using IPv6 so there's no leak, or your VPN is successfully blocking IPv6 and protecting you.
