You aren't missing anything yet. I think we just haven't updated the
code to support WebView on Android 6. Each major OS changes the method
for proxying, and in some cases makes it impossible. 

This is why we have moved to Orfox, building on Firefox/Gecko code,
instead of Android's WebView.

That said, we are doing some work on a project that needs this, as well,
so if anyone has the code to add Marshmallow support, then I would be
happy to integrate it into NetCipher.
