After update g2 to kit Kat, I noticed that something was added to my IP address under network. And it remains whether phone is in airplane mode or with the wifi on. Any thoughts on what it could be?

Wow that is very interesting and scary, I had no idea. So that number just became like my social security number of the internet by which I can be tracked.

I am not sure. It kinda sucks. even if you have nothing to hide

wonder if it can be spoofed.
I know ipv6 can be turned off. And a lot of security agencies do tend to advice switching it off.

Guys, that is just an IPv6 address vs the normal IPv4 address. Apparently they are connecting you to both now.

192.0.0.4 being the IPv4 address you are familiar with.

Edit: oops. missed that someone already said it was IPv6. Sorry
