    I've used PIA for the past 4 years without problems.
    It also provides you with a SOCKS5 proxy as do NordVPN and IPVanish I believe.

    Do you remember who bought NordVPN a short while ago? And who owns utorrent?

    Well, I might be helpful to read an occasional newspaper.
    If you use Nord, you might as well not use a VPN...

    First I had two warning from my internet provider about copyright chit and now since nordvpn, nothing, so what's your argument ThomasMann.
    Show me what they say about nord plz.
    BTW if you configure utorrent with sock5 you should have no probs at all.
    Cheers.

    If you want to understand why the change in ownership might be a problem, simply research it.
    And I am quite happy to use tixati, after the changes at utorrent.

    Same here like privacy that goes out not just for torrent of course.
    I put my vpn id in browser and torrent now that's privacy that I like, and of course if you know how to use a vpn you should not have any probs at all.

    Check out Deluge for torrenting...

    Use blacklists/whitelists, whatever you can find, since some of the seeders are corporate/gov shisters...

    (Don't take TM seriously...)

    Is iirc known for leaking IPs (if you check comments on reddit).

    Best option for torrenting is to use qBittorent with all traffic routed to the VPNs SOCKS5. Doing this with Windscribe here although they also offer a Firewall that already beats any kill-switches.

    there are some sites which allow you to download directly your needed file from utorrent, you copy your utorrent or magnet links then paste it in the right box, then the file is downloaded hrough a seedbox and once it has been downloaded completely, the site will make the file accessible for you so that you can download it but there is a limitation that you can't exceed for free.
    if you want to download the file from utorrent link with unlimited access, you will have to pay.
