WebRTC IP Leak
WebRTC could leak IP address to the websites just after a little effort by these sites. Technology like VPN could also prove to be ineffective if WebRTC feature is enabled into your browser’s setting.
Unfortunately, most of the popular browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Opera have default enabled WebRTC and you as a user has no idea about it until you check it with webRTC.
Webrtc Leak Test
WebRTC tool could help you to figure out your browsers setting that is, whether your WebRTC is leaking or not. To check it out, just run the WebRTC test through webRTC tool and it will tell you that the feature is enabled in your browser or not. On the other hand, if you are VPN user, you must check that your VPN has disabled the feature or not. To check it, connect the VPN and run the test with WebRTC tool. If the results display your real IP address that means your WebRTC feature is enabled.
For enabled WebRTC, you must change your browser’s settings to disable it. There are different methods for WebRTC settings for different Browsers.
