BTGuard VPN protects my privacy by sending and receiving data across the internet as if I was in a private network. It gives me all the protection and security that I expect from a private network. The product consists of settings. I am using BTGuard VPN for torrenting and browsing at the same time. It is easy to setup. It works fine. A drawback is the transmission speed. It is too slow for watching online videos.
I join BTGuard. For a three-month subscription, they give you five percent discount, for six months, you get 15 percent. I pay with PayPal. I can cancel anytime. My account is immediately activated. I login to the customer area. BTGuard offers two installation variants: PPTP and OpenVPN.
PPTP and OpenVPN are different methods of becoming anonymous. PPTP is available for Windows, Mac OS, and iOS. OpenVPN is available for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. I choose PPTP for Windows and follow the instructions. Three minutes later, my VPN is running.
I check my IP address by pasting it into Google. It appears to be located in Amsterdam, when I live in Germany. I can now watch videos on YouTube that are not allowed in my legislation. The VPN circumvents IP blocking. BTGuard does not store records of usage.
BTGuard VPN anonymizes various types of internet services. The speed for surfing and BitTorrent is good. The speed for watching online videos is too slow. People that need an anonymous internet connection in addition to anonymous BitTorrent can buy it. I do not recommend it for people that need anonymous streaming of online videos. People that only need anonymous BitTorrent can buy BTGuard BitTorrent Proxy, it is faster and cheaper. Goto BTGuard
