Why you should use a VPN when torrenting

Most of us on the internet these days worry, to some extent, about our online security, and many of us do something to protect it, like using a VPN.

However, when it comes to torrenting, most of us seem to forget that we need protection when sharing files, and as a result, we leave ourselves open to attack.

File-sharing in any form leaves you vulnerable and your online security potentially compromised, but we tend not to take steps to secure our connection when torrenting. For many people, this is because they’re worried about losing their fast upload / download speeds, and they’re worried about people seeing what they’re doing.

SurfEasy VPN now supports torrent protection to users on the Ultra VPN plan—and we’ve made it so that you don’t have to worry about any of the above.

Our dedicated torrent servers maintain your super fast speeds, we don’t put restrictions on your bandwidth and we certainly don’t keep any logs of your torrenting activity, because we think that what you do online is your business and your business only.

SurfEasy torrent protection is available in both our Mac and Windows applications, so you no longer have to leave yourself open to attack when torrenting.

Visit to get started today, and protect yourself online no matter what you’re doing.
