What is a torrent?

A torrent is a compressed file that is passed through the Internet and available to millions of people to download. Music, ebooks, movies and software are all available in torrent form. Torrents are illegal to download and Federal copyright regulations have led to people receiving notices, fines and prison sentences for illegal downloading.

How it works

Torrent Privacy creates a secure pathway for information with a SSH protocol. Downloaded information including the IP address of the receiving computer and user information is masked once a download is passed through the information tunnel. Torrent Privacy is a legal program according to the Personal Data Protection Act.


Torrent Privacy offers trial, monthly and yearly subscription prices. As of 2010, the one week trial is £1.90, one month is £6.40, three months are £16.20, six months are £32.40 and a one year subscription is £64.90.
