WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) utilizes and implements STUN (Seesion Traversal Utilities for Nat). STUN is a protocol that makes the Public IP address of an internet user discoverable. In order to disable this, you simply need to follow a few simple steps:

Mozilla Firefox: In the address bar, type “about:config”. Now scroll down until you find “media.peerconnection.enabled”. Double click on it to set it to false.

Google Chrome: You can simply install Google’s official extension of WebRTC Network Limiter.

    My streaming started to break down while watching tv. I checked the speed and it was around 150 kbs. I turned off webrtc and it came back up to watch tv. Do I need webrtc leak protection?
