When connected to a VPN, I check WebRTC at BrowserLeaks - Web Browser Fingerprinting - Browsing Privacy and also IP/DNS Detect
Here are the results:

So according to them, I do not have any WebRTC leak, is that correct?


But my VPN provider's page, where it says WebRTC test, does say this:
Potential Leak

Is that by mistake, isn't it?

Thank you.

Which browser are you using? I remember Brave used to have some problems with it... specially if are using an extension and not the desktop app. Test on other browsers

Edit: i remember i've already checked Webrtc leaks that neither of those sites have found. Maybe someone here in the forum may know how to test that again

Update: I tested with firefox, without any addons, and it says:
WebRTC feature is disabled or not available.

Almost impossible to help you, we don't know your VPN provider nor it's a Desktop app or browser extension only?
From my personal experience, all this kind of "leak" testing websites are not always reliable, if you want to be really sure you have to contact support of your VPN provider, they should be able to guide what you have to do to avoid that your real IP might be visible in specific circumstances on major browsers like Edge, Chrome, Firefox.
