How to Stay Secure While Downloading Torrents?

Post by teressapeter » Mon Jan 14, 2019 1:54 pm

Are you a fan of watching and downloading torrents? Well, the more appealing it sounds in words, in reality it isn't as much convenient as you might think of it. Torrenting has always been a close-to-heart thing for the streamers who don't want to pay a penny more to watch their favorite shows and movies when they can download it using torrenting software and web directories. However, if you look at it closely, torrenting is basically the violation of the piracy laws which everyone should comply for in any case. But if you still don't give a darn about the piracy, then you should think about your privacy. Because, if you are really into watching the pirated stuff and all, you need a secure connection that can help you download torrents anonymously. The more secure your connection is, the less risky it will be. Now, the only way you can secure the internet connection is to buy VPN from a reputable and fastest VPN client like Ivacy that encrypts your connection with a military-grade encryption and keeps you anonymous while you can download and stream anything you want without any buffer or speed drop.

Before ordering a VPN you need to check if your vpn provider allows p2p traffic to avoid blocking. Do not use USA vpn servers for torrenting. Select EU servers instead. This will help you to avoid suspending. As I know aeroshield allows torrenting only on Europe servers.

This is a relevant read about dangers of piracy and how to avoid getting in trouble. Lots of ISPs are kind of forcing what AT&T did here, myself I support the developers and buy games on steam, but honestly some publishers are simply overpricing their products and in some countries it's simply not affordable. Here I support torrenting, but as aleximar said you need a VPN that supports p2p. I use Surfshark for torrents, high speed servers and all of them obfuscated, which means ISP won't even see that you're connected to a VPN at all, an extra security layer.
