I recently discovered BTGuard – a program that allows you to anonymously download torrents. After an embarrassing situation with my ISP, I realized how exposed I am when using torrent software. Any snooping corporation or law enforcement officer can quickly and easily determine the identity of everyone accessing a torrent. This is a problem if you use torrents to download anything from pirated movies, TV, pirated software, or porn. Luckily, BTGuard exists which uses proxy servers to basically create a wall between you and your fellow downloaders on the peer-to-peer network and makes your torrent download anonymous. BTGuard works with most BitTorrent software including uTorrent, BitTorrent, Vuze, and BitComet. Please see my more extensive guide on anonymous BitTorrent.
