If you find a leak in your VPN, don’t panic. There are a number of ways to fix a leak that you have encountered. If you find that such leaks occur frequently, consider changing your VPN provider and go to the one that can better protect your online activity.
How to fix an IP leak
A reliable solution to eliminate IP leaks is to use a VPN service that provides full support for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. You can also add restrictions on using IPv6 addresses only to your firewall, but this is a temporary solution to the incident.
How to fix a DNS leak
If you find a DNS leak, there are a number of ways you can try to fix it. First, turn off your VPN and turn off your WiFi. After a minute, turn on your WiFi and reconnect to your VPN. If this doesn’t solve the problem, try selecting another server to connect to in your VPN. After that, run a DNS leak test again to check the security of your connection.
How to fix a WebRTC leak
The best way to eliminate WebRTC leaks is to disable WebRTC in your browser. This can be done in Firefox and a number of other browsers. But Chromium browsers, such as Chrome or Brave, do not have options to disable WebRTC, so for these browsers, use browser extensions to protect your online privacy.
Tips to prevent VPN leaks
Use the tests above to periodically check your VPN.
Make sure that your VPN provider supports IPv6 addresses so that the IP address does not leak
Contact your VPN provider and make sure that your service does not allow any DNS leak
Disable WebRTC in your browser or add an extension to prevent WebRTC leaks
Consider switching to another VPN provider that offers complete protection against leaks and other vulnerabilities
