Downloading torrents is always risky, more so when you are directly downloading them using your internet connection. The sensible option is to mask your IP address, with the help of a service such as CyberGhost VPN.
And since your IP is hidden, websites cannot track your searches and browsing patterns, which means no ads either. If you want complete control over the service, including which protocol to use, you will be happy to know that the VPN supports OpenVPN, L2TP-IPsec and PPTP, and you can select any of those.
Your internet is secured by the VPN’s 256-bit AES encryption, which protects your network from being attacked by hackers, malware, etc. This allows you to download or browse the internet, bank or shop online on any network connection, including free and public Wi-Fi networks which you may come across at many places.
If your internet is flaky, and the connection breaks, you will still be secured by the Kill Switch, which disables the internet connection as a precaution, to block websites and applications from getting your real IP address. The DNS and IP Leak prevention built in to the VPN, prevents such leaks in your web browser.
CyberGhost is also an excellent way to bypass regional blocks, for example if Twitter or Facebook is not available in your Country or the one you are touring, you can use the VPN to access the websites. Is your favorite video or music streaming service not available in your Country yet? You know which VPN can allow you to reach the service.
What about the speed though? Using a VPN will slow your traffic won’t it. Not really, CyberGhost has more than 1250 servers which are located in 59 Countries worldwide, so you have a lot of options to choose from, including selecting servers from your own or neighboring regions for the best speeds.
CyberGhost is a cross-platform service with apps for Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS. You can also configure your router to work with the VPN for complete security for all your devices.
CyberGhost allows users to connect up to 5 devices simultaneously, to a single account. There are no limitations to the upload or download count, so you can use the VPN all the time too.
