There is a security hole that can reveal your IP address to websites through WebRTC. WebRTC was originally developed to aid certain types of connections between browsers without the need for an additional plugin.The API directory is used for voice calls, video chats, and p2p file sharing. WebRTC could be used to discover a user’s local IP, even under the presence of a VPN.

Since WebRTC uses javascript requests to get your IP address, users of NoScript or similar services will not leak their IP addresses.

Note: This is a BROWSER issue, not a VPN problem, and not unique to our service.
