Description

WebRTC can leak local IP information even when using Orbot. Either we need to find a way to proxy it as well (perhaps with SOCKS) or disable it.

WebRTC only works when JavaScript is enabled.

Apparently, currently it is not possible to directly disable WebRTC: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/36174648/disable-android-webview-webrtc

Unless Google adds WebRTC controls to the standard WebView, implementing this feature will require WebView to be forked to create Privacy WebView as part of the 4.x series. Until that time, WebRTC only works when JavaScript is enabled, so browsing with JavaScript disabled (the default) also disables WebRTC.
