$ fingerprint@info:~ echo $WEBRTC
Original feature purpose:
WebRTC (Real Time Communication) is a technology
which enables Web applications and sites to capture and optionally stream audio and/or video media, as well as to exchange
arbitrary data between browsers without requiring an intermediary. The set of standards, which is available via WebRTC, makes it
possible to share data and perform teleconferencing peer-to-peer without requiring the user to install plug-ins or
any other third-party software.
For more details see, e.g., MDN web docs
WebRTC IP-Leak: WebRTC allows requests to STUN servers that will return the public and the local IP addresses of the client.
This also works with an active VPN connection (both, the local VPN address and your real public IP address can be revealed).
Media Device IDs: Media Device IDs are unique identifiers of a media device installed or plugged in to your system.
Examples for Media Devices are audio (connected microphones, connected speakers) and video (webcam) devices.
The list of device IDs, i.e. connected and installed media devices, combined with supported or enabled WebRTC features by the client (e.g. screen capturing support)
results in a WebRTC fingerprint.
FP-Categories: js, js-attrib, html5, unchanged-consistent
Firefox: Disable via
Chrome: Use Chrome extension (No setting option to deactivate WebRTC)
Use Incognito mode (Media Device API)
Info: Generates new Device IDs
