What is IP leak and how to solve it?

IP leak means your real IP is being revealed by the target site even though you are using proxy to mask your request.
Various 3rd party programs cause your actual IP to be leaked when using Bright Data through a browser:

  • WebRTC
  • Flash
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • ActiveX

To ensure this does not happen, make sure to turn these off to be 100% anonymous.
