I noticed tonight that my ISP is leaking in the webRTC section on ipleak.net, is this a known issue that's being worked on?

it's best to just shut it off in your browser.  search the forum more.

Google Chrome has an extension that fixes the webrtc problem. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/webrtc-network-limiter/npeicpdbkakmehahjeeohfdhnlpdklia?hl=en



In Firefox webrtc can be turned off completely by following these simple steps.

  1. Enter "about:config" in the firefox address bar and press enter.
  2. Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
  3. Search for "media.peerconnection.enabled"
  4. Double click the entry, the column "Value" should now be "false"
  5. Done. Do the WebRTC leak test again.

uBlock Origin is the best extension for it, as it works across all browsers and makes this process very user friendly.

Hello !


If you scroll to the bottom of ipleak.net it will tell you how to plug the leak.
