How To Download Torrents Anonymously

How To Download Torrents Anonymously
Written by Alexandra S

With law-firms and anti-piracy outfits actively investigating and surveying BitTorrent, a vast number of users accessing torrents are looking for ways to download content anonymously and/or ways to hide their identities from the online community. Paying heed to plenty of visitors’ requests, we are pointing toward the five best ways to hide your identity while downloading torrents, down below.

Since a number of users among the BitTorrent platform are looking for ways in how to download torrents anonymously, privacy services providing such services, have been on the rise lately. The following is a list of the most used privacy services that allow BitTorrent users to change or mask their IP addresses easily.

The privacy services that we have listed and recommended below, vary from cheap to costing you a pretty penny for a valuable service. As it so happens with every single free service, they tend to function slower and they involve a limited amount of services while those coming with a monthly fee offer little or no restrictions.

The bottom line is that paid privacy services are more effective and also faster than the cheaper or free alternatives for those who are trying to find the means in how to download torrents anonymously. Pick one that depends on your particular needs and requirements.

1- VPN

Plenty of heavy BitTorrent users are already aware of VPN. VPN provides privacy services which are among the finest for users in the BitTorrent platform. For the price of a coffee cup to the price of a brand new car, VPN services direct all your web traffic through their servers in order to hide your identity and your IP from online snoopers who may want to find out who you are and where you are operating from. Of course, there are some free VPNs, but they’re not recommended for experienced and heavier users of BitTorrents. We personally recommend HideMyAss Pro, it is the leading VPN service provider.

The Virtual Private Network service is not limited to BitTorrent alone, unlike the rest of the services that we have listed below. They hide your IP address at all times, granting you complete anonymity.

2- BT Guard

BTGuardThe BT Guard proxy service is specifically designed for BitTorrent and it efficiently hides your IP address from the rest the users in a BitTorrent swarm. This service is very versatile, working on multiple platforms such as Windows, Linux, and Mac.

Even though the client has a pre-configured client base, the users of this proxy service can subscribe to other client bases while using this program. It also works with any client that supports Socks V5 proxies such as uTorrent and Vuze. The advantage of this program is that it provides additional encryption software for those seeking security as well.

3- TorrentPrivacy

TorrentPrivacy

This is yet another privacy service designed for BitTorrent closely resembling the BT Guard platform and it provides a modified uTorrent user interface which includes settings that are already configured. The only disadvantage of this program is that it only works on Windows OS, so Linux and Mac OS users are out of luck.

This platform can be found on the following website: http://www.torrentprivacy.com and the program have been in active development for a whole year now.

4- Anomos

Anomos

The Anomos team describe their work as a pseudonym for anonymous, which is program based on an encrypted multi-peer-to-peer file sharing protocol. In its essence, it’s the concept of BitTorrent combined with the layer of the onion routing anonymization. A ready advantage of the program is active end-to-end encryption.

This is a free platform for BitTorrent users who do not want their IP addresses to be shown. With the platform using its own torrent format, its disadvantage is that it cannot be compatible with certain torrent files. Another downside to this free program is that its speed is slower than the speeds offered by paid services.

5- Seedbox

Seedbox

The Seedbox is a dedicated server that provides bandwidth at extremely high speeds, designed for transfers via torrents. This platform provides high speeds for its users while hiding their IP addresses from the rest of the Internet. Once you’re done with downloading a torrent, you can immediately download the desired files to your personal computer through an HTTP connection that is very fast and operates at a very high speed.

  • Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
