How to use Proton VPN for BitTorrent
Peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing is only available using one of our paid Proton VPN Plus, Proton Unlimited, or Visionary (legacy users only) plans. If you are on a Free plan and wish to torrent, you need to upgrade to one of these plans.
To do this, log in to your account at account.protonvpn.com, click the Upgrade button at the top right of the screen, and select your preferred plan.
How to torrent with Proton VPN
1. Download, install, and open our app for your device.
Note that while our iOS/iPadOS app does support P2P servers, Apple does not permit P2P apps in the iOS App Store. This means torrenting is not usually possible on iPhones or iPads.
2. Connect to one of our P2P servers. You can torrent while connected to any of our Plus servers, but we recommend connecting to our special P2P servers, as these are optimized for BitTorrent network traffic.
P2P servers (and the countries that support them) are clearly marked with a double-arrow icon.
You can now torrent safely with Proton VPN privacy.
