View Full Version : Chrome WebRTC leaking IP when using VPN


The add on WebRTC Block for chrome is not longer working.
Does anybody know how to disable WebRTC on Chrome in any other way?

I switched to the latest Chrome 43 beta version, hoping that I could disable it on chrome://flags.
Unfortunately that option is still grayed out, only available for Chrome android platform.

I use WebRTC Block (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/webrtc-block/nphkkbaidamjmhfanlpblblcadhfbkdm) on Iron (a Chrome based browser) and it works perfect !
You can test WebRTC leaks here (https://www.cyberghostvpn.com/en_us/rtctest).


Thanks OTT

I didn't know that. I'll give it a try.
Just downloaded Slimjet browser that allow WebRTC feature to be disabled on the security setting.
The reviews of this browser seems quite positive.

WebRTC Block on Iron, it still shows my IP. Checked with IPLEAK.

Slimjet WebRTC enable/disable feature works like a charms. Not quite sure I can get used to this browser though. So many features http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/scratchhead.gif

Thanks all the same.

Strange, no leaks here on Iron... tested on different sites.
I'm using Iron portable v41.0.2200.0
I see 2 different internal IP's (VPN and real) which doesn't mather and 1 external IP, that of my VPN...
If a try WebRTC it doesn't work.

Do you surf in Incognito mode ? In that case make sure WebRTC Block is allowed to run !
Check "Allow in Incognito mode" on the "chrome://extensions/" page.

I tested Slimjet in the past and it is a very good and fast browser with indeed "to many" functions : Video downloader, Facebook integration, File upload... which I could not shut down permanently, after each update they were turned on again.
That was the reason for me to not use it further !



WebRTC Block is allowed in incognito, though the icon is not displaying on the toolbar.



Both the above webpages shows that Iron is leaking my IP.
Cyberghost (the link you gave me) give me a clear bill.

Shame as I like Iron. In the past Iron updates where far in between, things seems to have improved in this regard lately.

I mostly use Firefox, just that some of the favorite websites I regularly use, like Weather Report, News and others essentials to me, do not display properly. Also I like watching TV series online and I found that flash player is crashing quite often.

Don't like IE, hence the need for Chrome.

Good that you reckon that Slimjet is a good browser. If it keep up with chromium latest release updates I'll try to get used to it.

Chrome should comes up with a fix for WebRTC, which apparently is on the pipeline and should be available on version 43.
So they say, I won't loose my sleep on account of it though. If Google really wanted they would have fixed it already, they did it for their android browser...
