The most effective ways to anonymously use torrents

Sometimes users have a need in downloading files from torrents and stay anonymous in the process. Most often this is necessary in order to bypass blocking, but some users may need it for own individual reasons. There is a set of ways to load torrents anonymously and among them you can find difficult and simple, paid and free options, but all of them are quite effective. Let’s get acquainted with the most widespread options which don’t break the law.


The VPN connection allows bypassing many prohibitions as it hides true user’s location. Being as “wolf in sheep’s clothing”, the person can use any blocked torrent and download data from foreign websites which was unavailable without VPN. It is very convenient and rather simple, and you don’t need to be a hacker for effective using this service. When looking for most suitable app try to search on website with VPN service lists and reviews and choose it in comparing table of providers (in which you will be able to find all necessary information about this or that VPN service). To bypass blocking of websites many people use free VPN services, but they are too slow to work with torrents. In order not to have such difficulties, it is better to pay several dollars for high-quality service with paid subscription. Also on the website additional information about how to download torrents anonymously could be found.

Network of anonymous transmissions – Tor

To use this network it is necessary to open the local proxy server which will create communication between anonymous Tor network and application which was selected by the user. After that it is necessary to set settings so they will redirect torrent data to the anonymous network. It is important to remember that P2P applications create a huge traffic and because of that it is undesirable to use such network for peering.


This is a system which works by the same principle, as anonymous Tor network, but there is the possibility of peering. Data transfer going by many paths and very tangled therefore the finite receiver remains fully anonymous. The basis of this system is in the complex of routers thanks to which it is impossible to trace from where and by whom data was sent. The probability of data interception is minimized as the complete chain of transmission isn’t known even to Nodes. To use services of this system it is necessary to receive your special invitation to the e-mail address as now BitBlinder works in beta-testing mode.

This is a rather popular service which works online and becomes intermediary in downloading of torrent files via the browser. Service is attractive to many users as that it doesn’t require additional installation and settings – just enough to visit its website and to use service in online mode. The premium account which costs 7 dollars monthly will allow using more expanded functions and getting access to all popular torrents.


This service works also online, but uses a few other diagrams for concealment of true IP address. The address is ciphered thanks to SSH tunneling. The cost of website services is about 10 USA dollars.


This is a decentralized network which will allow using different resources anonymously. Torrents are included too. The address is ciphered on several levels, and identifiers of network points aren’t logically connected in any way. However, for use of this network it is necessary to purchase the license support.
