How can I stop Network Settings from being able to change without my permission? Couldn't find anything under "Security" in Settings.

OSX 10.9.5 (Mavericks)

Changes (broke Internet): Settings -> Network -> Advanced

  1. TCP/IP -> Configure IPv6: "Link-local only" (vs. "Automatically")
  2. Proxies -> Web Proxy (HTTP) Checked (vs. Unchecked)

Running TunnelBear VPN (which turns off IPv6 automatically to prevent leakage when using "Vigilant" mode) and UBlock Origin. I suspect they may have something to do with changes.


Pretty sure the issue was with TunnelBear.
