Download Torrents Safely (and Quickly) with CyberGhost VPN
Torrenting is an easy way to share large files over the internet. The BitTorrent protocol is perfectly legal, but downloading and sharing copyrighted material through torrents is not. This is why torrenting can be a gray area from a legal perspective.
While we do not condone the use of torrents for copyrighted material, we do believe that everyone should be able to use torrents safely and anonymously. This is where CyberGhost VPN comes in. We keep you anonymous while torrenting, no matter your location, tracker, or ISP.
Download Torrents on Any Device
CyberGhost VPN is available on all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Linux. You can use our VPN on Xbox, PlayStation, and Smart TVs. You can also install CyberGhost VPN directly to your router!
And the best part? You can use CyberGhost on up to 7 devices simultaneously!
Dedicated VPN Servers for Torrenting
Need to download torrents as quickly and safely as possible? No worries, we have servers optimized for torrenting. This means you get a safe, smooth, and seamless torrenting experience.
Our encrypted VPN tunnel means you can access restricted torrent domains and avoid any ISP throttling.
No Logs. None.
We don’t keep logs of anyone’s activity, so protecting our users’ privacy comes naturally to us. If you want to stay anonymous while torrenting, this is a vital prerequisite. How do we do it? CyberGhost VPN is developed according to Privacy by Design principles. We’ve never breached our customers’ trust because we never stored their data in the first place. We are based in Romania, a country with no data retention laws.
As such, we are not legally bound to log any data. Romania is not part of any surveillance alliance, so nothing compels us to collaborate with foreign intelligence agencies. Our home makes it much easier for us to protect our Ghosties.
With CyberGhost VPN, your torrent activity is completely anonymous - nobody will be able to tell what you’re doing now, or ever.
We also release a regular Transparency Report where you can find out more about the legal and law enforcement requests we get, our infrastructure, and more.
Airtight (DNS) Leak Prevention
DNS leaks can expose your torrenting activity to your ISP. To make sure they never happen, the CyberGhost team developed an airtight DNS leak protection: our very own DNS service, enabled by default in all of our apps.
The DNS is like a public ledger that helps connect you to your favorite websites. Most ISPs have their own DNS servers, so they have full access to your browsing activity. If you connect to torrenting sites without a VPN or private DNS enabled, your ISP can tell.
VPNs are a possible way around your ISP’s DNS, but not all VPNs can successfully plug DNS leaks. With other VPN apps, there’s a chance that your device might sometimes revert to the default DNS, which means any eavesdroppers and your ISP will know you visited torrenting websites.
When you use Cyberghost VPN, all DNS requests are routed through our DNS servers, while IPv6 requests are blocked. Simple and secure.
VPNs may offer increased protection, but they are known to slow down your internet speed. We’re not big fans of compromise, so we made a commitment to offer the fastest possible VPN servers.
Because everything starts in the data center, we’re constantly scaling our server fleet to improve baseline performance. You can check out our fleet reports for more information on how much RAM, CPU, and bandwidth we pack per physical server.
But we don’t just want to be the best VPN for torrenting.
Aside from P2P traffic, our infrastructure also includes streaming and gaming-optimized servers. CyberGhost is compatible with the fastest encryption protocols and, depending on what you’re doing online, the app automatically switches to the best type of connection. Strap in.
No VPN can protect your identity if the secure tunnel drops. Your information and activity are most likely to be exposed, since your device reverts back to its regular IP address.
Even the most stable of connections can experience issues, and when this happens, we want to make sure there’s no accidental exposure. This is all the more important if you’re using a VPN to torrent in a country that sanctions sharing copyrighted material - the ISP will see our you might get a warning or a fine.
Our application constantly monitors traffic and, if you get disconnected from the VPN server, CyberGhost’s automatic kill switch completely cuts off your internet connection.
Bandwidth is particularly important if you’re looking for the best VPN torrent setup. It limits your download and upload speeds while torrenting.
Many VPNs say they don’t limit users’ bandwidth, but they have other caps in place that are not as obvious. For instance, a VPN can restrict the total bandwidth available on individual servers - if the server you connect to can't handle more than 5 Mbps, you won’t get more.
That’s why CyberGhost doesn’t limit bandwidth or traffic in any way. In addition, we regularly increase our average bandwidth to accommodate increased usage. When we say unlimited, we mean it.
If you’re experiencing any connection issues, we have 24/7 customer support at the ready.
Optimized for Torrenting
CyberGhost is the first VPN to offer optimized servers for torrenting. We specifically designed these servers for P2P traffic, which means more reliable connections and faster downloads.
When you use an encrypted CyberGhost VPN torrent server, you don’t have to worry about your ISP or anyone else tracking your activity. You’re also able to access torrenting sites that your ISP blocked.
Depending on where you live, we recommend choosing one of the torrenting-optimized servers in Spain, Switzerland, Poland, Canada, India, or Egypt. These are some of the regions where torrenting legislation is still favorable.
If you’re not happy with your download and upload speeds, you can always use our 45-day money-back guarantee to get a full refund. But we’re confident we have the best VPN for torrenting - which is also why our guarantee is longer than our competitors’.
Torrenting is legal so long as you use it for non-copyrighted material. In most countries, torrenting copyrighted material is punishable by law, although the sanctions are not always enforced.
We recommend you always use a VPN with solid encryption when you torrent. This way, you’ll remain anonymous, and you won’t be sanctioned even if you accidentally download copyrighted content.
Torrenting with a VPN is generally safe. The only thing you need to look out for is malware that infiltrates your computer or device when you run an application. It’s good practice to always scan files you download through torrents before using or opening them.
With CyberGhost VPN, you can torrent safely, and you also can easily scan for viruses using the same application. All you have to do is upgrade to the Security Suite, install the built-in antivirus, and give your files a quick scan when the download is complete.
No. Free VPNs are usually a way to harvest user information, which is sold to various third parties. Some free VPNs actually leverage their users’ computers and devices to expand their network. If you’re not paying for a product, chances are, you are the product.
What’s worse, many free VPNs ask for high-level permissions on your devices. That’s why you should only install software from trusted sources.
CyberGhost VPN comes with a 45-day money-back guarantee. You can use it to download torrents safely, and if you’re not satisfied with the service, ask for a full refund.
Simply put, DNS leaks are a result of network misconfiguration or poor-quality VPN tunnels. In a DNS leak, your secure connection reverts to the regular one, and requests are fulfilled through your ISP’s DNS, rather than through the VPN tunnel.
Yes. VPNs hide your IP from the rest of the internet, encrypt your traffic, and reroute your DNS requests through a private network.
When you use your regular connection, you’re basically allowing your ISP full access to your online activities.
When you use a VPN, your traffic is all jumbled up thanks to the encryption, while a private service fulfils your DNS requests. Even if someone tries to eavesdrop on your connection, they won’t be able to tell what’s going on. If the VPN tunnel drops at any point, the application’s kill switch should prevent any DNS requests from being fulfilled.
