What is a WebRTC Leak?

WebRTC stands for Web Real Time Communication. It implements STUN which stands for Session Traversal Utilities for Nat. Stun is essentially a protocol that can make your IP address discoverable.

If you installed any of snugVPN's browser extensions for Chrome or Firefox you can simply enable WebRTC protection in the settings panel.

In order to manually protect against this you can follow these simple steps:

Firefox

Type "about:config" into the address bar. Scroll down until you see "media.peerconnection.enabled". Double-click on it and toggle the setting to "false".

Chrome

Simply install Google's official WebRTC Network Limiter Extension.
