If you do not have protective measures in place to secure your connection to Bittorrent, 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 request from a third party requesting your personal identity and information. 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. Setup just takes a minute with our easy one click proxy software.
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 third party agents looking to find out your personal name and information. 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 the BitTorrent network, they can throttle your connection to unbearably slow speeds, even if you just download occasionally.
If you are serious about keeping your download activity private, you should tunnel your BitTorrent connection through a privacy service like TorGuard. Anonymous VPN service can hide your activity to keep “Big Brother” out of your personal business and protect you from a nosey ISP or network admin. TorGuard provides Bittorrent focused proxy servers, VPNs, and Anonymous email services to keep you safe and secure while torrenting.
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. Independent monitoring groups can also join torrent 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. TorGuard 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. TorGuard offers you both a proxy to combat spying and encryption to combat throttling.
If you're going to use BitTorrent to share and download files, we highly recommend getting some sort of protection from one of these TorGuard services so you can avoid ISP “love letters” and throttled speeds. Enjoy true internet freedom and anonymity knowing that your sensitive web traffic is securely hidden with TorGuard security and our VPN service.
