WebRTC detected IP addresses

Is the IP addresses shown in the "Public IP addresses" section your actual IP addresses?
Maybe not! Your browser might be configured such that it uses a proxy server as the actual endpoint. If so, most likely the displayed IP address is the IP address of the endpoint server. However, there are different ways to find your actual IP address. Like using WebRTC method. WebRTC can bypass system-wide proxy and reveal your actual IP address. You can find a few browser extensions that can disable WebRTC. Try for instance "WebRTC Protect" extension (Chrome link, Opera link, and
Firefox (not available yet))
What are the common terms used in proxy manager extensions?
There are usually four different ways to configure your browser to use a proxy server.
- No Proxy Mode (Direct Mode): In this case, your browser bypasses all the system level proxies and try to connect you to the internet directly. This option is usually used to detect whether an external software is configuring a system-level proxy or not. You can turn it on and off and compare IP addresses. Another use case is when although you are connected to the internet, still you cannot browse any website. Most likely an external proxy manager is configured your network to use a specific proxy server that is not available anymore or is not responding. By turning "Direct Mode" on you can bypass these os-level proxies and allow you to directly browse the web.
- System Proxy Mode: In this mode, your browser uses a system-wide proxy server. Sometimes, proxy applications only set system-level proxy and expect all other applications to respect the proxy setting (although there are different ways to connect to the net directly). Not that the external software is going to manage proxy settings in this case and is responsible for all the proxy and DNS leakages.
- Manual Proxy Mode: In this case, you are going to explicitly define a proxy server for "HTTP", "HTTPS" and "FTP" protocols. Some proxy extensions support "other" protocols as well.
To change your IP address, you need to configure your browser to use a proxy server. If you are on Firefox, try Proxy Switcher
add-on (extension), for Chrome browser, try Proxy Switcher
