How safe is torrenting in Germany with this VPN?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I moved to Germany a couple of months ago and ran into a problem.  For downloading from a torrent, they send a fine in the amount of 1 thousand euros. I am looking for a suitable vpn in order to avoid a fine.  Can you please tell me if AirVpn encrypts the IP address well? I would not want to download from the torrent in time, my ip was leaked somewhere.  Does this vpn guarantee me security in this case? I've heard a lot about such benefits as P2P, Internet Kill Switch, IPleak and DNSleaktest, and I don't know if they are in this vpn.  If I don’t understand anything about VPN, and I will be grateful if you explain everything in detail, since I really don’t want a fine. Thanks in advance for your reply and help!

It's German, but I highly recommend reading a bit through this. Try to get help from a fellow German with translation or use a translator. Your situation is frequently encountered here and you may have a few aces up your sleeve to counter this.

I understand your uncertainty right now, but let's try using precise words to describe exactly what the VPN gets you.

No, the encryption is for your traffic. The VPN server pseudonymizes your IP address: If your address is 1.2.3.4 and that of the VPN server is 5.6.7.8, any IP you connect to will see that the connection comes from 5.6.7.8.

No VPN guarantees your safety. But it helps, especially with the correct configuration.

They are.
  • All servers can be used for P2P.
  • The "kill switch" is called Network Lock here and is not a kill switch in the classical sense. It's a set of firewall rules that only allow connections to the VPN servers. This is more robust because the kill switch is a reactive technique (reacts to a failed ping or a change of IP address, etc.) while the firewall is proactive (rules are rules and are application-independent).
  • IPLeak is AirVPN's own IP API. But people use others as well.
