And we keep zero records on our torrent proxy servers, so there is no hidden loophole to catch you. We are committed to your security and we value your trust.
The most common strategies to torrent anonymously are insufficient. Peerguard tools will not keep you, your IP address, or your personal information safe. It is becoming increasingly easy for prying eyes to get around conventional defenses to view torrent download traffic. This can cause problems for anyone torrenting.
Whether you want to keep “big brother” out of your personal business or simply prevent bandwidth throttling, if you’re really serious about keeping your download activity private your best bet involves routing your torrent connection through an encrypted external torrent VPN service.
At TorGuard we offer BT-focused Torrent VPN services to keep you safe and protected. All TorGuard VPN service plans include::
You may wonder how you can ensure your torrent downloads are protected when running your Torrent VPN. TorGuard's Torrent IP Checker Tool is a torrent tracker that lets you download a legal torrent file to your client. Because no one other than you has this torrent and since there are no seeders, the torrent will not download or complete - it will remain active in your queue as long as you wish. Only you will see your torrent IP within your torrent client and will thus be able to constantly monitor your setup.
How TorGuard Torrent VPN Service Works
When you download or seed a torrent, you're connecting to a bunch of other people, called a swarm, all of whom—in order to share files—can see your computer's IP address. That's all very handy when you're sharing files with other users, but file sharers such as yourself aren't necessarily the only people paying attention. Independent monitoring groups also join BitTorrent swarms, but instead of sharing files, they're logging the IP addresses of other people in the swarm—including you—so that they can notify your ISP of your doings. A Torrent VPN service (like TorGuard) funnels your internet traffic—in this case, just your BitTorrent traffic—through another server, so that the BitTorrent swarm will show an IP address from a server that can't be traced back to you instead of the address that points to your house. That way, these “prying eyes” can't contact your ISP, and your ISP has no cause to send you a harrowing letter.
