WebRTC Test

What is WebRTC?

There is a special interface (program) in most Internet browsers (Chrome, Firefox, etc.) called Web Real Time Communication, or WebRTC, and that’s where the so-called flaw is.

However, WebRTC isn’t a flaw at all. It’s actually a special facet of your Web browser.

WebRTC allows computers on different networks to perform special browser-to-browser applications, such as voice calling, video chats, file sharing and more.

But as it turns out, in the hands of a technically savvy person, WebRTC can be tricked into revealing your actual IP address, even if you’re actively using a VPN! That’s certainly not what you would expect or want.

IP address revealed!

Your local IP addresses:

    Your public IP addresses:

      Your IPv6 addresses:
