Prevent WebRTC leaks

Manually disabling WebRTC in your browser.*

How to disable WebRTC in Chrome on desktop

There are two Chrome extensions known to successfully block WebRTC leaks:

  1. uBlock Origin
  2. WebRTC Network Limiter

uBlock Origin is a general all-purpose blocker that blocks ads, trackers, malware, and has an option to block WebRTC. WebRTC Network Limiter is an official Google add-on that specifically stops IP leaks without totally blocking WebRTC.

How to disable WebRTC in Safari on desktop

There’s no need to disable WebRTC in Safari. Safari’s permissions model is stricter than those of most browsers. By default, no IP addresses are made available to websites except the one you use to access the site. Therefore you shouldn’t need to take any additional action to prevent WebRTC leaks in Safari. Note, however, that if you grant any particular site permission to use audio or video capture, you might expose your IPs.

How to disable WebRTC in Firefox on desktop

  1. Type about:config into the address bar
  2. Click the “I accept the risk!” button that appears
  3. Type media.peerconnection.enabled in the search bar
  4. Double-click to change the Value to “false”

This should work on both mobile and desktop versions of Firefox.

How to disable WebRTC in Opera on desktop

To disable WebRTC in Opera, you’ll need to download the extension WebRTC Leak Prevent and follow these steps:

  1. Access the extension’s settings (View → Show Extensions → WebRTC Leak Prevent → Options)
  2. Choose “Disable non-proxied UDP (force proxy)” from the dropdown menu
  3. Click Apply settings

How to disable WebRTC in Microsoft Edge

Unfortunately, there’s currently no way to completely disable WebRTC in Microsoft Edge. However, you can set your browser to hide your local IP address if you:

  1. Type about:flags into the address bar
  2. Check the option marked Hide my local IP address over WebRTC connections

As mentioned above, revealing your local IP address is not a threat to your privacy, so the steps above offer little benefit. Therefore the best way to stop WebRTC leaks while using Microsoft Edge is by using the IPBurger VPN app for Windows.

*Disabling WebRTC probably won’t affect normal web browsing. Most websites don’t depend on it… yet. But as WebRTC becomes more popular, the functionality of certain sites may decline if you disable it completely.

Prevent IPv6 leaks

If you are not using IPBurger Extension for web browsers, then you must disable IPv6 on your computer to properly use IPBurger services. Otherwise, your real IP Address might be leaked.

For using VPN Softwares/Protocols such as SoftEther, L2TP or OpenVPN, you must disable IPv6.

That’s it, your IPv6 is now disabled, and you can safely use the VPN.
