Windows 7: 74 VPNs Tested for IP, DNS & WebRTC Leaks (15 Leaking)

64-bit Windows 10 Pro
74 VPNs Tested for IP, DNS & WebRTC Leaks (15 Leaking)

There are multiple reasons why VPNs leak.But a leaking VPN is useless.

You purchase VPN service for one very simple reason: Hide your IP and protect your data while browsing the Internet or using public Wi-Fi.

Leaks completely undermine this vital service, exposing your true location and activities right before the prying eyes of your ISP, government agencies, and cybercriminals.

Itís like buying a vacuum cleaner and having it blow dirt out all over your house.

We donít take leaks lightly.

Every VPN that we review goes through an extensive leak-detection process. We establish a connection with their servers and then use six different third-party tools to reveal our IP address.

If they donít match the VPNís stated server location, it means they are leakingÖ

15 VPNs That Leak
  1. Hoxx VPN (free & paid version)
  2. Hola (free version)
  3. (paid version)
  4. SecureVPN (paid version)
  5. DotVPN (free version)
  6. Speedify (free version)
  7. Betternet (free version)
  8. Ivacy (free version)
  9. Touch VPN (paid version)

Here's another resource worth looking into: Privacy Tools - Encryption Against Global Mass Surveillance

Test Webrtc: WebRTC Leak Test - IP Address Discovery - Media Device ID Fingerprint -

Test for DNS leaks: DNS leak test

(You shouldn't see your NIC's DNS IPs with a leak test if you are using a VPN. The IPs should be something vastly different.)

If it's bad on Win7, no doubt MS will say 'things can only get better' on Win10.

It's really game over whether you use a VPN in 10 or not. LOL They very fact it has a built-in keylogger should raise eyebrows. Yet people will say, "but, but, you can turn it off." THAT'S NOT THE POINT!

It will be a very long time before I use 10, and when I do I'll use a hardware-based firewall and block all of M$'s ASNs and monitor SNMP for anything else that comes and goes. I don't even use updates anyway. I use Faronics Anti-executable and Sandboxie with my browser, browse the Internet with common sense and scan downloads at virus total. This whole "you need updates" is a fallacy. Haven't used updates since I ran 98se in 2004.
