    If you are using VPNs for multiple profiles and get chuffed off when all your accounts get locked, then this may be worth a read. If you use Chrome or Firefox then your real IP address could be seen using WebRTC.

    Anyway, there is a plugin for Chrome but thought you guys may want to know.

    Very interesting. Hopefully there is something to block it soon.

    That's why I use private proxies, to keep myself out of Google sight.

    Nice, glad they list the fixes in there, just another privacy extension to install. Getting kind of ridiculous.
