Using a VPN and not getting caught (optional)
Using a VPN is optional. I’ve downloaded torrents at home without a VPN many times without any trouble but some people may get warnings from their ISP (Internet Service Provider). Using a VPN will make your torrenting activity undetectable to your ISP.
There are many VPN providers. I can recommend TorGuard VPN. I’ve been using them for many years.
Their normal prices are about $10/month but they have discounted prices for longer subscriptions. I’m paying a discounted price of $30/year.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed the software, open the VPN application. You can select any server your want but I recommend using a server in a country that speaks your language.
Now you can download torrents completely anonymously.
