Hi. IPv6 is the new style of internet address, using hex digits, much longer than the 4 bytes of IPv4. If you're using this, you will see your own address in the new format in Settings > WiFi, when you tap the ℹ for your network. Otherwise, I believe it's only likely if you're using a VPN,

Now, I don't know why you'd see an IPv6 "window" with anything, unless it's a hack. Is it actually in the google search page, or when you follow a link in the search results? Could you post a screenshot (use the camera icon in the site editor). Be sure to redact any personal info.
