Is PC-PC Torrent Private?


Recommended Posts


My question is: Is PC-PC Torrenting private?

My Explanation: Suppose PC-A is in US and PC-B is in Canada. PC-A uploads/seeds a file via torrent client. PC-B downloads/receives the file via torrent download. Provided that no third PC downloads the same torrent, is this communication safe from prying eyes like ISPs and other privacy invaders?

Unfortunately - no. Your traffic is visible to anyone with the abilioty to snoop and the only way to conceal that is to use a VPN. However, sharing the file via a cloud server (or direct FTP transfer) does what you are asking without the use of torrents (but your ISP always knows the amount of traffic on your machine)
