If you do not have protective measures in place to secure your connection to the torrent cloud, it is just a matter of time before your ISP responds to your downloading activities by throttling your connection or by sending you the infamous “love letter.” The worst-case scenario is that they receive a subpoena from an attorney requesting your identity for a potential lawsuit. TorGuard offers proxy and VPN service to ensure your anonymity and security, protecting you from these risks. Our private VPN and torrent proxy tools can keep you completely safe when you use a BitTorrent client.
Traditional measures aren't enough to let you torrent anonymously and stay safe anymore. It is becoming increasingly easy for prying eyes to view torrent traffic. This includes representatives looking to target torrenters with lawsuits. If your ISP throttles BitTorrent traffic and you don’t have a tool in place to anonymize your connection, you have an additional problem. As long as an ISP can detect that you are connecting to a BitTorrent cloud, they can throttle your connection to unbearably slow speeds, even if you are accessing perfectly legal downloads.
If you are serious about keeping your download activity private, you should route your BitTorrent connection through an external service. An anonymous VPN can hide your activity to keep “Big Brother” out of your personal business and protect you from your ISP. TorGuard provides BT-focused proxy servers, VPNs, and Anonymous email services to keep you safe and secure while torrenting.
Keep reading to learn how TorGuard works and how to set it up to privatize and anonymize your BitTorrent traffic with TorGuard.
When you download or seed a torrent, you connect to several other people. This is called a swarm, and everyone in the swarm can see your computer's IP address. But independent monitoring groups can also join swarms in order to monitor activity and log IP addresses. They can notify your ISP of your doings and use the information for other purposes. Our proxy and VPN services funnel your internet and BitTorrent traffic through another server. Those in Torrent swarm see an IP address from our server that can't be traced back to you. So “prying eyes” can't identify you and share your torrenting information with your ISP, so it has no cause to send you a harrowing letter. TorGuard offers you both a proxy to combat spying and encryption to combat throttling.
It gets better. Hypothetically, snoopers in the swarm could go after TorGuard and request our logs to get the same information about your downloading. But we don’t keep any logs of activity on our servers, so there's no trail leading back to you. Someone watching traffic on our servers would simply see them sharing a file, while your ISP only sees you connecting to TorGuard. Everything else is encrypted.
You still have to be careful of going over your ISP's bandwidth cap if they have one.
