- DNS Leak Test
I’m not from Singapore. DNS leak test passed as they are showing the server that I am connected to instead of my real IP.
- WebRTC Test
Both the local and public IP addresses are from the ExpressVPN server instead of mine. Test passed!
- IPV6 Leak Test
I actually went over to email and ask ExpressVPN about their server. They actually owned all of their servers themselves!
Here’s their full answer.
