Frequently asked questions

Torrent swarms from public trackers are visible to anyone with an internet connection. Researchers estimate that your IP address is logged within minutes of downloading a popular torrent. File-sharers are being targeted based on their IP address for harassment, threats and lawsuits. 

Torrent activity is tracked in 2 ways:

  1. Via your public IP address in torrent swarms (visible to everyone)
  2. Direct monitoring of your internet connection (by your Internet Service Provider).

By using common tools like a torrent-friendly Virtual Private Network (VPN) you can hide your real IP address from torrent swarms. A VPN will also encrypt your internet traffic so your ISP or network administrator can’t monitor or throttle you directly. 

The high-quality VPN services we recommend on this site all come with their own easy-to-use software.

Simply choose a server location and click connect. The VPN will do all the hard work behind the scenes, changing your IP address and encrypting all of your internet traffic with extremely strong encryption.

There are several very good torrent-friendly VPN services, all with zero-log privacy policies.

The 3 we recommend most frequently are:

  1. Private Internet Access
  2. NordVPN
  3. IPVanish
