Webrtc ip leak Ios 11


#1

I’m running Ios 11 beta 8 and I encounter a big ip leak when I use my Vpn. Do you will upgrade Brave to fix this major privacy problem.
Thanks for your reply

Hi @roberto,

Did you enable fingerprinting protection via lion icon in top right for per site settings or via setting for global settings?

Thank to your reply eljuno, yes I’ve enabled fingerprinting protection.
But It’s a Webrtc ip leak because Apple has implemented it in ios 11
Which has nothing to do with fingerprint.
So most of browsers are leaking your personnal ip over the vpn : Firefox Focus, Brave, Dolphin, Opera , Yandex , Google (beuark!)
I’ve found only 3 browser which doesn’t leak
Safari (with an option checked in settings : (advanced-experimental features- remove legacy Webrtc API)
Firefox
Sleipnir
All others are leaking …

Hi @roberto

WebRTC protection is not available in UIWebView as per comment below and it does block on iOS 10.

I have logged an issue for this to be investigated for iOS 11. Please track the issue here
