Lightening Fast Servers Keep Your P2P Sharing PrivateGet PrivadoVPN Today
Peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing has had a bad reputation for several years, but there are a lot of people using it every day to share large, free access, or otherwise unwieldy files with thousands of others in a remarkably efficient way.
Unfortunately, because of its negative reputation, many ISPs discourage users from sharing on P2P networks. They might throttle your speed or even block those types of transfer entirely. Either way, they are able to monitor who you are connected to and what you are downloading.
And you know what? That's none of their business.
With PrivadoVPN, you can not only prevent outside agents from knowing who you've connected to and what you're sharing, you keep your ISP from knowing anything other than that you're downloading a large file.
Before it even leaves your computer, the data you are sharing will be encrypted so that only you and the recipient will know what it is. Then, your information will be sent through an encrypted tunnel to prevent data leaks or snooping. We use the strongest encryption technology and VPN protocols designed to keep even the most dedicated miscreant from reading your files in transit.
P2P file sharing relies on two computers knowing where each other are and uses what’s called an “IP address” to do that. Unfortunately, that also means that other people can see who connected to whom. With a VPN, your data is routed through one of our secure global servers, changing your IP address so you can share files without letting anyone know your identity online.
You might not even realize, but a lot of ISPs actually will put artificial caps on the speed of P2P file transfers to discourage people from using them. If your ISP is doing that to you, using a VPN can bypass that trick. When you’re connected to a virtual private network, your ISP can’t tell what sort of protocol you’re using to transfer files, so you may see even a dramatic increase in download speed using PrivadoVPN.
With the PrivadoVPN Premium plan, you not only get all of the benefits above, but you also get access to our SOCKS5 proxy. This is an additional layer of protection that further anonymizes your P2P activity at the application level. That means that you can set your P2P client to route data through this server and mask your IP while maintaining the incredibly fast speeds you can expect on the PrivadoVPN network.
It's incredibly easy to set up and, once you do, you don't have to think about it ever again. Your P2P data in that client will always be sent through the SOCKS5 proxy so that governments, corporations, hackers, or even your ISP won't be able to trace your P2P activity back to you.
