Preventing WebRTC leaks

Even if you are using a proxy, websites can still access your real IP address via WebRTC (Web Real Time Communication) leaks. WebRTC is used for voice, video, or file sharing over the Internet. But if you're looking to hide your location you'll want to disable WebRTC because it can reveal your real IP address.

You can turn off WebRTC in the privacy section of the Ghost Browser settings by following the below instructions.

If you still think your IP address is leaking after turning off WebRTC, please contact us here and let us know how you tested it so we can replicate the issue. Be aware that some websites (like whoer.net) will tell you that your IP address is leaking even when it isn’t. If they say that WebRTC is leaking your real IP, but display a null result for your actual IP address, that means that you are not leaking your real IP address - success!

Disabling WebRTC for Ghost Browser

  1. In upper right corner of the browser click the menu > Settings
  2. Click the blue, 'Show advanced settings...' text
  3. As seen in the screenshot below click the box that says, Disable WebRTC.

Like the other browser settings, checking or unchecking this box will persist even if you quit the browser. So rest assured that if you disable WebRTC it will remain disabled until you re-enable it.
