Top 5 Best VPNs for Torrenting, File Sharing, P2P

Top 5 Best VPNs for Torrenting, File Sharing, P2P

7.0/7 rating 1 vote

Torrent was introduced as a file sharing protocol in 2001. Before that, there was no easy way to share or send huge files through the Internet. So, to make this process easier, Bit Torrent was introduced. Files are downloaded and shared at the same time through torrents in a decentralized manner which makes torrent pretty difficult to ban.

There are certain privacy and copyright issues, though. Your ISP can track your downloads, and if you download anything out of the ordinary through torrents, there are hefty fines. A solution to this problem was found later in VPN (Virtual Private Network) – which allow you to browse privately by piggybacking on different servers and hiding your true IP.

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) secures your network by masking your connection’s IP address. So in a way, it creates a secure virtual tunnel between your computer and rest of the internet which makes it impossible for anyone to track downloads or torrent activity. With an emerging demand of VPNs amongst internet users all around the world, many VPN services tried to break into this niche, but only a few of them succeed in keeping themselves in business.

There are many VPN services which can completely secure your torrent and download activity. Some well-known VPNs are listed here.

1. PIAVPN

Private Internet Access or PIA is, without any arguments, the best VPN for torrenting. This VPN product is funded and created by London Trust Media, Inc. At first, they did a detailed research on how advertisement agencies and spammers work to gain a terrifying amount of knowledge about your surfing habits and preferences. After a thorough research, they developed a product which uses layers upon layers of protection to make sure that your privacy is safe and nobody will be able to know what are you browsing about or what your browsing preferences are.

PIA’s cross-platform compatibility is unmatchable. Only a few VPNs can reach this level of compatibility and sophistication. This VPN supports Windows, MAC, Unix/Linux, iOS, and Android. So no matter what kind of platform you are using, you can be sure that your online activity is secure.

This type of protection is also a plus point for torrenting because even your ISP will be unable to track your downloading activity. In a way, it makes you invincible, but at a price. All the good VPNs come at a cost and seeing the effort they’ve put into protecting your privacy, and that price is nothing.

Price

PIA has different price plans if you are interested in subscribing. They have an Annual plan which costs $39.95 with a 52% discount. These discount offers change regularly, so take the time you visit their pricing page, it may have been modified. Their six months’ plan costs $35.95, and they also have a monthly plan which costs $6.95.

All in all, Private Internet Access (PIA) is the best VPN for torrenting, and their prices are also pretty reasonable. A few bucks per year can save you from a lot of headaches.

2. Ivacy VPN

PIA is not the only big player in the VPN game. There are a few others which come on par with it. Ivacy VPN is one of them. Ivacy has more than 250 servers in 44+ countries. Along with that, Ivacy uses 256-bit encryption to make your activity secure, and you can use up to 5 multiple logins. They have a no logging policy, so none of your online activity will be logged into their servers. Considering all these features, you can start your torrenting activity with confidence because Ivacy is making sure that you don’t get caught by your ISP and have to pay heavy fines.

Many types of operating systems and devices are supported by this VPN including, iPhone, iPad, Windows, Android, Xbox360 and DDWRT Router.

Up to 3 devices can be connected simultaneously.

Above mentioned are pretty much the same features as other VPNs discussed. The only difference is that Express VPN has more locations than any other. And as always, you can be sure that your torrenting activity will be safe and secure without any hassles.
