Q. How do I know my TorGuard proxy or VPN is working?
Answer: TorGuard's free Torrent IP Checker Tool is a torrent tracker that lets you download a legal torrent file to your client.

You'll see your torrent IP within your torrent client and will now be able to constantly monitor your setup.

Q. Would TorGuard ever share my information with a third party?
Answer: We don’t share any information with anyone regarding our network or its users and won’t even consider communicating with a 3rd party unless they’ve first obtained adequate representation within our legal jurisdiction. Only in the event of an official court ordered ruling would we be forced to hand over blank hard drives. There’s nothing to hand over but an operating system. ( No Logs)
Q. How are payments linked to individual user accounts?
Answer: Our client billing area and VPN/Proxy/Email user auth servers are two completely separate systems. This is to ensure the privacy and securities of our customer’s accounts are upheld at all times. While the customer’s chosen payment method will be linked to the client billing area login, this information is kept completely separate from their VPN/Proxy network. In this way, it’s virtually impossible to “connect the dots” of a paying customer with that of someone who is using the servers. This can become a pain for clients as they are required to remember two sets of logins/passwords, but trust us – It’s in the best interest of security.
Q. What is the max connection limit?
Answer: This depends heavily on the speed of the client’s connection as we don’t limit the connection throughput at all on our end. All of our servers feature gigabit+ port speeds, so DL rates can vary from 5mbps – 30mbps depending on your connection speed and ping. We’re also one of the only VPN service providers that allows 5 simultaneous connections per account. This means you can secure all your devices, Laptop, Desktop, Smartphone, Router, all with one VPN account. Try our speed our for yourself with our FREE VPN Service trial, now available.
