The best torrenting websites to use with CyberGhost

[ adapted after an original article written by Ulrich Brügmann on the German version of the CyberGhost blog ]

Torrents have always been a source of controversy, but this is unfortunately not a fully deserved bad reputation. Although they are best known as a means of distributing illegal content such as copyright-protected music or movies, peer-to-peer file sharing is also popular because the technology behind it has some considerable benefits.

Those who offer files through torrents thus distribute the required load of resources through a network of computers and thereby relieve the respective provider – which is why Linux files and other large types of documents are offered as torrents. Thus, instead of a single server that just goes down with new releases quickly, many individual computers take over the distribution and ensure noticeably faster download rates.

Even so, using torrents – or better, downloading files through torrents – is illegal in some countries. If not, their use is logged. Another downside: ISPs may take measures to throttle Internet speed when heavy torrent use is detected. Furthermore, they may choose to block certain torrent platforms.

Download torrents using a VPN

To avoid the above-mentioned disadvantages or unjustified warnings, it is recommended to use a good VPN for torrenting. Its purpose is to make you safe and anonymous online, but also to enable you to access regionally blocked torrent sites.

However, not all VPNs are appropriate for torrenting. Many block VPN traffic, just like regular Internet providers do, while others do not hesitate to close user accounts they suspect of P2P file sharing. This means that in spite of probably promoting the fact that they do not monitor their users’ traffic, these VPN providers actually do, otherwise how would they know the websites their users are accessing?

Now, there are some things that all of us can do, from professionals to every single citizen of this world and that is to take our online privacy seriously and do the right steps to protect it, starting from today.

This means using the right privacy protection tools, being more aware of what we post online and generally, being more aware that what we say online may be interpreted different by different entities and organizations.

Even if you're not doing anything wrong

For one year now, we know that 2.7 billion people are possibly being mass surveyed by the NSA huge systems (physical size of 6 of the biggest IKEA stores, capable to store our entire lives).

Facebook doesn’t even charge for giving away data to NSA and 98% percent of the PRISM data has been collected from Google, Yahoo and Microsoft, but AOL, YouTube, Apple or Skype are also involved, according to Wikipedia and other important sources. Read More
