Re: Deanonymisation of own real IP addresses via WebRTC

Hi,

 

I have posted a longer answer to the WebRTC question in another thread, detailing a few options for disabling WebRTC.


The short answer is that the WebRTC IP address leak is quite real, and a VPN solution such as Freedome can not technically fully defeat it. The problem needs to be addressed within the web browser itself -  by browser configuration changes (or plugins) to disable WebRTC, or by changes made by the browser developers.

There is now a working extension for Google Chrome too:

 

WebRTC Network Limiter (Chrome Store)

 

Tested after installation using the site IPLeak.net seems to be doing its job.
