If I use inbuilt vpn feature of a browser, does it modify my ipv6 address, making me safe as far as my mac address is concerned ?

OS - Ubuntu 16.04. Browser - Opera

  • The "VPN" inside Opera browser is essentially a proxy, not a Virtual Private Network. It does not change anything on your network configuration, which includes not changing anything regarding IPv6. Commented May 17, 2019 at 15:11
  • @SteffenUllrich: Oh, thanks Sir. I guess, I need to manually change my ipv6. Commented May 17, 2019 at 15:31
