βœ… How to Torrent Safely Using Surfshark πŸ”’ Surfshark Torrenting Tutorial

how's it going everybody welcome back and today i'll be showing you guys how to torrent safely in surf shark now whether it's legal or illegal to torrent in your own country that is up to you to find out uh get familiar with your local laws and make sure that you're not doing anything uh risky or or legal so with that out of the way if you are interested in surf shark i'll leave some links in the description uh i'll try to find some offers and special deals so that you guys can hopefully save some cash let's get straight into it so there are a few things you can't expect to just get into a vpn turn on and expect to be completely private and anonymous now there are a few things that you want to make sure are on or off to make sure that you are completely private so let's get into the settings here uh we'll get into the kill switch later but first let's talk about protocols now for protocols you can just go with automatic in in uh surfshark will select the best for you sure but you want to you know you want to understand protocols a little bit more so that you know what to do and you know what to select depending on the uh activity you're doing so icaf 2 is good quick but it only works on a handful of servers so that's that's a problem not very reliable tcp has terrible download speed so again we're not going to mess with that openvpn is the best combination of security and speed and that's what we're going to use today and i'll explain in just a second why shadow socks is used if you're in a country where using a vpn is not permitted in the first place which is unfortunate but it's a reality some some countries have that much censorship believe it or not wireguard is the quickest overall now wireguard protocols are newer protocols i would use wireguard protocol for a for any streaming activities that i was that i would do so yeah uh i would also use it for torrenting but the problem is it hasn't been audited now in other vpns there aren't many audits for surf shark honestly but uh the audits that happened on other vpns like expressvpn and nordvpn uh they happened they they made these audits on openvpn so openvpn is tested and proven to be one of the safest uh protocols available wireguard could be quicker and for all we know could be even more secure but since it's a very since it's a pretty recent protocol uh we have not put it to the test we we haven't seen any audits or reports uh proving that it's actually a very safe protocol it could be safe for all we know as i mentioned but openvpn is the tested one so we're gonna go with openvpn now if you're in a country where using a vpn is not permitted in the first place you want to you you want to turn on no borders mode this will allow you to bypass these you know firewalls such as the great firewall of china and such so yeah that's pretty handy now i'm not i'm not in a country where that's you know illegal to use where it's illegal to use a vpn so i don't need that yeah so uh besides the shadow sox protocol this is just one thing to keep in mind if you want to use shadow socks protocol uh when torrenting it's not exactly going to help you because if you see here shadow socks will will only protect your browser traffic so keep that in mind if you're going to use shadow socks protocol and use it for torrenting it's not going to protect your torrenting traffic so just please keep that in mind open udp vpn is usually the best solution when it comes to torrenting it's the best protocol to use so even if you're in a country where it's illegal to torrent and it's illegal to use a vpn just go with openvpn and go with no borders mode if you're not torrenting then yeah sure if you're just browsing just go with shadow socks it'll it'll offer you more anonymity but for security reasons go with openvpn and no borders mode so that'll be it for the openvpn now notice here we have a speed test feature but we'll get back to that in a second that's right before selecting the the servers so let's go to connectivity here we have the most important feature that you want to have when torrenting which is the kill switch it says here disable internet access when vpn connection drops or is turned off now why would you need that okay so if you don't know how vpns work what you're doing is basically changing your ip address obviously but you're also operating on the vpn providers servers which are secured and encrypted servers when you are using the internet you are encrypted all that data is encrypted however if the vpn connection disconnects for whatever reason you will revert back to your internet servers internet service provider servers and that will kind of compromise your traffic and whatever you're doing online all of that will be exposed to your isp and if you're doing anything that's illegal in your country you might get in trouble what a kill switch does is that the moment your vpn connection drops for whatever reason it rarely drops really but if it does drop that will be your security measure and it will completely cut off your internet so that when you go back to your isps server you don't have you're you're not even connected to the internet in the first place so no traffic or no data will show up in the first place so that's really cool that's very important so you want to keep this one on in here it says you won't access the internet without connecting to the vpn exactly how it works kill switch disabled your internet connection reconnect the vpn or turn the kill switch off so now i pretty much don't have an internet and the only way i can get internet is if i uh connect to the vpn so the only way i can get any kind of internet connection is if i'm using their secured encrypted servers so yeah that's a security measure that's very important when it comes to uh torrenting now we're gonna go to [Music] advanced and show you guys the speed test feature here now okay with surf shark you don't really need to use like some server a specialty server or anything like that there are no specialty servers surfshark makes it so that you can stream and torrent on whatever server it will automatically put you in a server where you are able to do such tasks so there's no problem with that what you can do is go to the speed test feature here and just run it it's going to take a while so i'm going to quit it anyways but you can run it and check for the best you know if you're if you're trying to game for example you can check for the best latency if you're trying to uh if you're trying to have the best upload or download speed you can also get all that information and make sure that you're using the right server depending on your situation so that'll be it use openvpn turn on no borders mode if you're in a country where you're not allowed where there are great firewalls or if you're not allowed to use vpns in the first place stick with openvpn make sure the kill switch is on that's very very very important and you know what keep the status notification on because that will notify you when anything happens if it disconnects if the vpn disconnects or anything so yeah i'll also keep that on that's pretty important so that you're also updated now we go to locations and you know you wanna you wanna pick okay you can just go with nearest country or fastest server you wanna pick a server that's closer to you so that you can get you know obviously the the the closer the distance between you and the server you're connecting to the better speeds you're getting it so you know you don't really have to uh worry too much about which server to pick so you can just go with bam faster server and that'll be it really so we're just going to wait until it uh connects here and i'll show you that it actually works with um there we go so i connected to the faster server which is israel for me that is the closest country and safest uh i mean fastest server according to uh surf shark now i'm gonna go here and i'm going to show you guys how this works with torrents resume and here we are now flash gordon is a public domain obviously we're not doing anything illegal here again this is public domain it's uh you know non-copyrighted material or it's not not copyrighted anymore i guess so yeah as you can tell it's working just fine we are downloading without any problems and obviously the download speed will vary between you know depending on your uh speed your internet connection and uh how many seeds there are here there's just one seed and uh yeah that's uh not uh yeah it's an
