Video tutorial showing how to torrent anonymously, safely, securely, and privately using a free unlimited VPN for Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP. This VPN (Softether VPN + VPN Gate) will mask your IP Address and Encrypt your download so that it is harder to track who you are and a smaller chance of getting caught torrenting.
One mistake I made, when choosing a VPN, make sure to choose the one with the highest line speed and the lowest ping. Not the one in your country. Big mistake on my part!
You should be using VPN's everyday since they improve your security and make you more anonymous on the web. A VPN will encrypt your web traffic so that no one can view what you are doing or who you are. You can use this casually or to torrent like in the video. Use this along Tor for casual browser to maximize your security. A VPN will also bypass regional restrictions such as China, and bypass wifi restrictions to access websites like YouTube, Netflix, or Reddit.

for torrenting, it works like charm. but for surfing website, something is weird.
- When I checked my IP location, it has been hidden to another country
- When browsing blocked websites, they are still blocked and my government webpage showed up, which is impossible because my ip has been changed. Why is that?
Great question! Obviously there’s no correct answer here, but here are my thoughts:
There are millions of people torrenting, and some of it is illegal. I won’t promote that, but I address that it happens. Most people trying to crack down are looking for easy targets. Using ANY VPN is going to be so much more secure than using nothing. This VPN keeps logs for two weeks so they’d have to request their logs before the end of the 2 week period. So I’d recommend any VPN over no VPN any day for discouragement, but just know there are much more secure paid options available.
When I enable the vpn I get issues with internet connection. It doesn't give me access despite being connected but it works just fine when i disable the vpn. Any thoughts on the matter or should I just move along and try a different vpn?. I would like to mention that ProtonVPN worked perfectly but the free version does not allow torrenting or rather p2p.
Okay lots of stuff to get to here :)
First, Piratebay and other torrent sites go down literally...all the time. So another outage doesn't surprise me. There are dozens of mirrors online, and the main site will most likely be back up within a month. If the main site doesn't, a mirror will take a stand and decide to be the "next" variation of the website.
As for the app, could you elaborate a bit more? You are essentially describing all of these torrent websites. They are central places to share torrent magnet links. They don't host any of their own content.
For your second comment, I'm having trouble understanding what your question is. Could you rephrase it?
Also the last 3 anime that I've tried to get into on YouTube that weren't completely on YouTube we're also not on anime websites as well as piratebay was down. It happened again now and that's why I want to get your thoughts.
It's an open-sourced project. I wouldn't trust them with your privacy, but I would trust them for security. It's going to encrypt you and protect you from WiFi snoopers, and allow you to bypass wifi restrictions and ISP spying. But I wouldn't trust them to keep your privacy safe. You are right, it's free and there are going to be handoffs. If you want full security and privacy, then you have to pay for a VPN. But this will work for people just wanting to do something quick.
sorry verynew to this.. im in south africa... i used a japanese vpn to connect but everything is now so slow... not sure if i did it correctly. so once i have now connected can i just launch the chrome browser or my vuze downloader and look for torrents or is there a specific place i must look?
as far as speed goes which one should I prioritise distance of the IP or the line speed?
I live in Canada and the IP's for Canada only have around 14mbp line speed while japan's IP's have line speed ranging from 60-90mbps.
and i downloaded this VPN, it ended up shutting off my internet i could barely access anything except maybe a google search.... am i using a bad connection? do the connections just vary? Is this THAT big of a difference if you PAY for a Faster VPN? Thanks in advance
I am guessing you are using the free version of Tunnelbear. They most likely do not allow you to download torrents using their free service, most VPN providers do this. The one in the video will not block torrents.
So if I'm always connected to the VPN, does that mean all of my internet traffic is filtered through it? Streaming services, regular light internet use, downloading torrents, etc are filtered and by extension slowed? Or does my torrenting client only get filtered through?
It's a bad idea to use this or any free VPN for torrenting. They no doubt maintain logs. That's why it's free. Your privacy is of no concern to them. They stand to lose nothing if they turn over your ip address because you're not paying them anyway.
Techlore it's true that only a small handful of copyright owners take the trouble to actually sue anyone. But the ones that do do it by getting a court order forcing the VPN or Internet provider to give them your information. I can think of only a few cases: Malibu media, hurt locker, Dallas buyers club. All of these copyright owners did do exactly that.
It is true companies can take this extra step. But they frequently do not. Why would they put time and money into chasing people using a VPN when they can hit the people who have absolutely no protection? Although it is true paid VPN's are far superior to any free VPN, the protection of a free VPN is still greater than not using one at all.
How do I know if this VPN client is really safe? The VPN servers in this client looks like they are set up by random people so their might not be much encryption when it comes to anonymity within the client.
The actual program is safe. It is open-sourced and from a reliable company. But yes, there isn't much information given on the specific servers. To be perfectly honest, just having a VPN for torrenting will keep you safe. No one wants to go through the trouble of tracing you through a VPN server if there are millions of people completely unprotected torrenting. You also have to remember that this is a free VPN and that comes with a price (ironically LOL). If you need maximum security with a VPN, you need to either make your own and pay for a very secure VPN provider.
Great video! A friend of mine said he was using a proxy server and even though the proxy hid or changed his IP adress he had to stop downloading because he got his second warning notice for a movie or file that he downloaded.
Apparently the movie/music industry got around the proxy somehow. How is that possible and how is a VPN safer?
And since it's not completely foolproof, how does the movie/music industry get around VPNs also? Just trying to understand how they work their slick magic. Thanks!
+LurkerDood thats the thing. He was connected. it said he was online through the icon. he opened a browser after getting connected to a US server and then we looked up his ip address and it was unchanged. he uses the cable companies modem but im not sure if its failing to give him a new ip address because of that...?
Then he wasn't connected to the VPN
Once you get connected to that IP, you see that little computer icon with the little blue ball next to the volume control at the bottom? Once you get connected that blue ball disappears
haha, i tried 3 countries with really high line speed really low ping and none of them worked (japan, korea, and one other i cant remember...) the only one that actually worked for me and that in using rn is Hong Kong! thanks all; you Hong Kongians! the only helpfull thing youve ever done for me!:] nice vid, thanks for the help!
+Techlore The TCP option never showed up. It just connected automatically looking for a DHCP and presto; however, like half the skeptics on here, I also only see my original IP, Techlore. Come on man, what's up with that?
say connect but went I do diagnostic since I see no network access I try to fix it and see
