What is the WebRTC leak?
The WebRTC project is supported by Google, Mozilla and Opera. Thus, WebRTC is implemented by the lastest versions of all major browsers.
XMyIP WebRTC IP leak test explained
You may encounter the following situations:
Case 1 - Using a VPN, proxy or TOR
- If the WebRTC IP leak test shows 'N/A' for both Local IP Address and Public IP Address then there are no WebRTC IP leaks!
- If the WebRTC test detects a public IP address that is different from the IP address of the VPN, proxy or TOR service, then the browser is leaking your IP address.
- If the WebRTC leak test detects a public IP address that is same with the IP address of the VPN, proxy or TOR service, then your browser is leaking WebRTC requests, but the hide IP solution (VPN, proxy, TOR) protects your real IP address.
Case 2 - Not using a VPN, proxy or TOR
- If the WebRTC leak checker shows 'N/A' for both Local IP Address and Public IP Address then WebRTC is disabled in your browser and there are no WebRTC leaks!
- If the WebRTC IP leak test detects a public IP address or local IP address than WebRTC is enabled and the browser may leak your visible IP address.
Important! This is not DNS leak test and does not show DNS leaks!
