With the overwhelming expansion of online devices, it quickly became obvious that far more addresses would be needed to connect devices than the IPv4 address space had available.
That is why IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) came into play. The total number of possible IPv6 addresses is more than 7.9×1028 times as many as IPv4, which uses 32-bit addresses and provides approximately 4.3 billion addresses.
IPv6 provides other technical benefits in addition to a larger addressing space, but we will not get into those, because what you need to know is…
Why we decided to deploy IPv6 services
As you’ve already probably noticed, we are always one step ahead of our competitors.
Most VPNs have been slow to accommodate the global transition to IPv6 and update their server networks. Of course, upgrading servers to support IPv6 is an expensive and difficult effort, but we’ve always promised to provide the best kind of online privacy solutions and we stay true to our motto.
Therefore, starting June 6th, we will begin deploying IPv6 services to our users. Why are we doing this? Because if you are using a VPN that is only compatible with IPv4 addresses, you are risking leaking your IPv6 address and thus becoming exposed online.
What you need to do
Make sure you are using the latest version of CyberGhost on all your devices in order to connect to our upgraded IPv6-compatible servers. If you don’t update, you risk no longer having access to our service.
Rest assured, your app will most likely prompt you to update to the latest version. If by any chance you miss this message, on desktop, you can go to our site and download the most recent version of our app, or check your App/Play Store for updates.
In no time, you will connect to the better, faster, stronger and upgraded CyberGhost servers!
