I has IPv6 with VM!

So i was messing about on my mobile connected to my Netgear R7000 and noticed i had an IPv6 address on connecting info on Samsung S7, so looked further it seems to be an 6to4 IPv6 assigned by VM. Interesting huh? Here is an image of it.. https://i.imgur.com/MXEjFLK.png

2002::/16 is 6to4, which is an automatic tunnelling mechanism that effectively is provided by "the internet". It's being set up by your router, without any involvement from VM.
