Everything you need to know about WebRTC and how it might affect you


A hot subject these days is WebRTC and how it leaks your real IP.

What is WebRTC?

Launched in 2011, WebRTC stands for “Web Real-Time Communication” and is a feature that allows voice calling, video chats or P2P sharing, directly into a browser, without adding an extra browser extension.

We won’t deny it, this feature might be very useful for some users but, for others, it might represent a real threat.


Because some of the “internet surfers” try by any mean to maintain their online anonymity and security while navigating the web and WebRTC might reveal their real IP address.

A very important thing to highlight is that the WebRTC issue is a vulnerability of a web browser – not of a VPN.

With ibVPN you’re safe and sound!

ibVPN is the perfect choice for those who care about their online security and want to stay away from any danger WebRTC brings. With our apps installed (for Windows, Mac OS, iOS or Android) and connected you are able to keep your internet activity protected.

So, play it safe, install the suitable app for your device, connect to the desired server and you won’t have to worry a second about your privacy and anonymity!

Don’t believe us? You can always check if your real IP is leaked when using one of our apps here.

ibVPN allows its users to disable/enable WebRTC!

As mentioned before, the WebRTC issue is dangerous, that’s why we had to find the right solution when it comes to browser extensions too.

As you already know, we provide 3 hype browser extensions that might come in handy when you try to surf the web in the safest way possible or to access your favorite media websites.

But how can you be sure you are surfing the web in the safest way possible, if you’re not using our VPN apps and if WebRTC leaks your real IP?

What if you would be able to control when to disable or enable WebRTC with just a click? Oh wait, now you can!

Our Chrome and Firefox extensions allow you to take control over WebRTC and, from now on, you can enable or disable it. In order to do this, make sure you’re using the latest versions of these two extensions.


Concerning our Opera add-on, the latest update have the WebRTC disabled by default. We will release the version that allows you to enable/disable WebRTC for this add-on very soon.

Important info: As described, WebRTC facilitates voice calling, video chats or P2P sharing which means that, by disabling it, the functionality of some apps, such as Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, Gotomeeting or Houseparty might be affected.

In order to enjoy an awesome experience of online entertainment, make sure you enable/disable WebRTC, without affecting the way you interact with the apps that use WebRTC.

Long story short:

WebRTC is that useful feature that allows you to video/voice call but it also might be the biggest danger when it comes to your online security and privacy. Make sure you browse wisely and think twice before having it enabled!

Safe browsing, folks!
