Your network devices are not protected!

Your devices are accessible from the Internet via the IPv6 protocol. Your personal data may be at risk.

Description


Our scan has found your device is directly accessible from the Internet via IPv6 protocol. Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the latest version of communication protocol used on the Internet. It allows easier direct communication between various devices (such as your PC, tablet, phone, etc.). This is a good thing, however when not configured properly it can allow others to connect directly to your network, your devices and compromise your private data. Our scan was able to connect to your device directly. This is a security risk.

Solution


Many routers don't support the same features for IPv6 as they do for older IPv4 protocol. Check your router settings for IPv6 and enable "Firewall" or "SPI Inspection".
