WebRTC Control is an extension that brings you control over WebRTC API in your browser. 

The toolbar icon serves as a toggle button that enables you to quickly disable or enable the add-on (note: the icon will change color once you click on it). This addon does not a have toolbar popup UI. When WebRTC is enabled in your browser, your real IP address will be exposed to the public (even if you're using a masking service such as VPN). But preventing WebRTC leaks helps you protect your IP address. WebRTC Control add-on will also disable the following WebRTC components (see add-on options page):

  a. navigator.getUserMedia 
  b. window.MediaStreamTrack
  c. window.RTCPeerConnection
  d. window.RTCSessionDescription

Risk impact

WebRTC Control requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

WebRTC Control has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

near perfect, seems to block webrtc like it says on the tin. I would however like to see the option to select some sites where it doesn't block webrtc, on my local network I have a site to check my security camera feed for example and it needs webrtc, yes I can click the button and disable this addon but then I forget to turn it back on. good stuff. (thumbs up)
