New version with better IPv6 support

 

Version 38 of FEAT VPN is out, which provides better compatibility when your Android device is connected to an IPv6 network.

VPN services typically only support IPv4. Some apps, however, support IPv6 and use IPv6 when they get a chance. Case in point: the built-in YouTube app. When you are connected to an IPv6 network, YouTube traffic will typically not go through your IPv4 VPN tunnel.

The new version tries to force apps to use IPv4, even when your Android device is connected to an IPv6 network. This should force all apps to send their traffic through the IPv4 VPN tunnel.

The Settings page of FEAT VPN now contains a new option, IPv6 Compatibility, which controls this feature. It's enabled by default. If it causes problems, disable it and let us know.

The new version is available from the following links. Keep in mind that you need to install the correct version of FEAT VPN for your version of Android.


As always, using the FEAT VPN app is subject to the app privacy policy, which is now required by California law. Take a look, but we do not think that it contains anything unexpected.
