How to Disable WebRTC

Learn what WebRTC is and how to disable it on your computer.

WebRTC is a browser feature that allows real-time peer to peer communication. This is great for things like audio/video communication. However, this also presents an exploit where your public IP address can be captured even if you’re using a VPN connection. If you are not planning on using voice/video over the web browser, you can disable WebRTC so that never presents an issue.

Disable WebRTC in Chrome

To disable WebRTC in the chrome browser, download one of the following addons: WebRTC Leak Prevent, WebRTC Control, or Easy WebRTC Block.

Disable WebRTC in Firefox

Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar. Then, filter the option media.peerconnection.enabled and set it to false.
