Is it advisable to use a VPN?

in Other

Yes, there are many reasons for this most importantly your privacy which we always encourage. Should KAT become blocked in your country you will also still be able to access the site.

Note: VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It is a method employing encryption to provide secure access to a remote computer over the Internet.

You will find more information in the Copyright Issues Section.

Thanks to that SoG, I've added a Related FAQ: FAQ: Where can I get a free VPN proxy server for downloading Torrents? which includes a mention of https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ (which is no longer free).

Here's my thinking:
Somehow, PIA got the privilege of being recommended by KAT. So I'm not going to tamper with that. Maybe it's nothing, or maybe people have some agreements in place. Since it got the official sanction, I left it and just edited it to reflect that it's no longer free. Then I linked the whole FAQ from here, so people who follow the link will see both -- as well as the link to the Copyright Issues section which has more discussion of VPNs.

Absolutely! Using a VPN is becoming more and more important these days. But there are few things to keep in mind.

1: Don't use a free VPN service, because if you aren't paying for the product, you are the product.

2: Go for the paid ones and read their privacy policies thoroughly before opting for them.

3: My suggestion would be to go with Ivacy VPN, as they are currently carrying the torrenting persona very well in the VPN market.

So, there you go. Just my two cents on the topic.

hi I paid for VPN and I still got a letter from copyright
can i still use a cracked vpn software?
...you should be able to if it's been done properly. Some risks associated with it not being properly done is that certain features may not work, bandwidth limiting, etc.

That's a lot of good, interesting info.
A nice review of that VPN provider.
I'm willing to look at it as information, not spam.

But this would be better placed in a thread or post in The Community. You'll get more and better attention somewhere here:

Thank you Anomolous, I would agree with position, and appreciate your help.

I had, in fact, spent quite a bit of time exploring everywhere especially in Community to find something or ask for help from someone there to help me. And what I was looking for was right here.

I've had a very disturbing email from my ISP - not only once but a different email based on a different basis
