cannot prevent IP address leaking through WebRTC. Web Real-Time Communication
(WebRTC) is an application programming interface (API) that is widely used in
various plugin-less applications.
WebRTC includes a method for the
web server to request the local IP address through the user's web browser. This
way the server may obtain the original IP address of the user's computer as
long as the user's browser supports WebRTC.
A VPN solution, such as Freedome
or its competitors, can not disable WebRTC within the web browser. At best, we
code. However, if the web server is a TLS/SSL protected https server, all
browser and it is impossible for Freedome to inspect that. The code may also be
obfuscated or compressed, making it difficult to reliably detect WebRTC.
Therefore, it is not technically possible to block WebRTC with Freedome.
To prevent WebRTC IP address
leakage, you must disable WebRTC in the web browser. Unfortunately, this is not
possible with all web browsers.
