    I'm not sure if that even exists!!! Maybe someone else will have a better solution.

    Meanwhile, you may use Tor with put.io or BitLet.
    If you are that desperate to hide your IP, use VPN. Just google free VPN services. Many are free but with limitations.

    BTW, are you trying to download something illegal? I mean, ISPs don't track each and every user do they? Who has so much free time? :p But if you do something illegal and someone gets a hint of it, you may be in serious trouble!!! Why take the risk? :p :D
    I think it's better to be safe than sorry.

    You can also set up your torrent client to only accept encrypted connections I think.

    I'm not sure how put.io woks. From what I tested, it downloads the contents to a cloud storage. And it offers a direct download link. So the torrents are downloaded by directly by put.io and indirectly you. So probably the IP of put.io will be tracked. put.io is like a virtual drive like many other cloud storage. So you can transfer the torrents, access your files, and do everything as you could do to a cloud storage. In short, all you need is a browser.

    BitLet is a probably a Java based app which works similar to bittorrent but does not require installation. You need to use it with any browser.

    Tor also uses a browser (probably Aurura). So, you can use both put.io and BitLet using Tor. Simply use the browser.

    But on a serious note, what exactly are you trying to download? Is it illegal in any way? Why are you trying to maintain so much secrecy? I have a shrewd suspicion that it is.

    I download movies/music from private torrent trackers yes and i want my ip to be hidden.

    if i use put.io/LetBit those services download the file for me right? So their ip address can only be seen by the other torrent clients that are also downloading the file and not my real ip address, is that correct?

    But if this is the case how do i know that put.io/LetBit doesnt share my real ip with someone else informing him what/when did i download?

    Stop using Public torrent sites, only use Private Invite Only sites, problem solved.

    Using a privatetorrent tracker doesnt mean that 3rd-party people can't see my real ip address and also waht iam downloading.

    @MDLGeek: please answer me friend if you know.

    Most private trackers don't allow the use of anonymizing proxies or Tor, so check their rules first or it might get you banned.

    It could be used to circumvent IP bans, or it could appear that you're sharing your account with others if you're logging in from many different IPs. Also, you don't want to end up connecting with the same IP as someone else on the site anyway, because if someone is violating the site's rules (e.g. ratio cheating), your account might be banned just as well if you've been sharing their IP.

    An example from what.cd's rules:

    Most private sites also have rules that say if you work for the government or law enforcement your not allowed to use the tracker. So unless they have a warrent to the site you have nothing to worry about because they would be gathering information illegally (same as breaking into a house to steal evidence) and it can't be used in a court of law.

    Let me the make the following as clear as I can:

    1. IP: Your IP can reveal nothing more than your city of residence (i.e. your city, country etc. But nothing more than city.) To get additional details (your name, exact address, street, etc.), anyone must go through a legal battle. Without a court order, your ISP cannot and will not reveal your details. So stop panicking about showing your IP in the first place.

    2. ISP: The suggestions I gave you might be able to camouflage your IP from fellow peers, but not from your ISP. I may be wrong, but from what I know its impossible to hide your online activities from your ISP. I strongly believe it is essential for the security of a nation and safety of human race to keep a check on what data is transferred and received by a user. But once again, ISPs never reveal your personal information unless its absolutely essential. Thousands of users download movies by torrent and how many are many caught? Not many... Why? Because the act is not threatening enough (once again, exceptions may occur).

    3. Tor: I'll echo 100's words. Moreover, from what I checked the IP addresses provided by Tor are mostly blacklisted somewhere or the other... Don't believe me? Give it a try yourself.

    4. Downloading movies: Most movies these days are available for download as direct download links rather than torrents. Just google it! If you are still panicked about people seeing your IP, you can try these. I think Tor should work in these cases. Keep in mind, in most cases, the downloads are non-resumable.

    5. Legal issues: Try to stay as much as possible on the right side of law and order. As I said before, its better to be safe than sorry. Simply said, stay away from shady stuff.


    Did I get my point across?

    Hope that helped! :)

    Thank you very much for your detailed info!

    By direct download links you mean file hosters links?

    I guess I was too detailed... :eek: Nevertheless, you are welcome.
    But yes. These files are mostly hosted at some file sharing site. e.g. rapidshare, turbobit, mediafire etc.
    But mostly you'll find the links to the files at some website, so its better to start with googling. Once again, let me remind you, these links are mostly non-resumable. And you might face problems with Tor. In all cases, you can always use your default browser with normal IP.
    And stay away from illegal stuff. You may end in serious trouble.

    Just being curious, why were you so paranoid about your IP being showed? And are you still panicked?
