    Wow, some good info here.

    Can I accomplish the media.peerconnection.false in Opera? Or do I need to use a different browser.

    WebRTC not done in opera either?

    There is a little program called Turbo VPN with the white rabbit on a orange square, I put this program on my phone and wondered if it actually does what it says.

    Thank you all

    I don't know that VPN. But do check out Ikram et al. (2016) An Analysis of the Privacy and Security Risks of Android VPN Permission-enabled Apps

    Thank you!

    So no matter what we risk it all with these elevated permissions.

    Thats it, I'm hiring my own programmer:D
