VPN Unlimited is a budget-friendly VPN provider with 1,000+ servers spread across 70+ countries. It offers excellent software solutions that cover the majority of popular platforms and provides decent connection speeds, which is especially important for avid P2P aficionados, streamers, and online gamers.
With that in mind, let’s check if VPN Unlimited allows torrenting.
P2P File Sharing
Having said that, legal usage of P2P file sharing is allowed, but if the company spots illegal downloads of copyrighted content (piracy), it can suspend or even terminate your account.
VPN Unlimited utilizes OpenVPN for Windows and Android and IPsec for OS X and iOS. However, you can download third-party OpenVPN connect software and configure it to work with VPN Unlimited’s servers even on Apple devices. Note that VPN Unlimited only provides access to its .ovpn files once you purchase a yearly subscription. PPTP protocol is only used on Windows Mobile.
VPN Unlimited’s parent company KeepSolid Inc is based in New York, which is definitely not ideal since the US is the home of the NSA and CIA. This means the VPN company can be served with warrants and gag orders, which translates to being obligated to hand over user data without the user in question knowing anything about it.
The encryption used features AES-256 cipher, RSA-4096 handshake, and SHA-384 data authentication. It also implements 256-bit ECDHE Perfect Forward Secrecy.
Torrenting On All Servers
VPN Unlimited doesn’t allow P2P filesharing on all of its servers. Rather, it limits torrenting to Canada-Ontario, US-California 1, France, Romania, and Luxembourg servers.
