Thinking of getting PIA (for real this time), but I'm too much of a retard. Someone said to
>Look at their SOCKS5 proxy wiki for configuring your torrent client directly and you don't even need to start the little program pia makes you dl
But, I read horror stories about still getting copyright claims. I use Deluge and Windows 7 and want to download mad shit from kat.cr so I can end my spotify membership. I've been caught in teh past.
Please someone step by step redpill this retard

Bittorrent is an insecure protocol that leaks your IP to other peers even when you're using a proxy. Just use mega f a m.
Take the What.CD Interview if it's music that you're looking for. Public trackers have tons of unseeded content and many of that is music. On What, there's little to no unseeded torrents. Everyone seeds here, just for you (you have to seed like everyone else).
Use utorrent 2.2.1 for windows.
I use PIA, can't post on it as far as I know.
Just remember it is probably safe for downloading copy written shit, it won't save you if someone really wants to track you. Especially the Feds. You are TRUSTING PIA to protect your data.
TOR is fine too for downloading, but I try to stay away from TOR. It's not any safer really, and known TOR nodes can actually bring attention to yourself for closer inspection.
Both are probably fine for downloading. It's like having locks for your house. It can't keep anyone out that really wants in. But it's a good idea.
i been using pia for about two years now and downloading the terabytes of stuff off those torrent sites
i use a raspberry pi and a nas to download stuff round the clock
there are nice guides online that will walk you through it
>>52409571 makes a good point
so long as you dont go downloading cheese pizza, you can torrent plenty
