uTorrent Will Ensure More Privacy

Results of a recent research disclosed quite an upsetting fact: peer-to-peer traffic is heavily monitored on. In order to address the concerns of its users, BitTorrent Inc. took a decision to modify its most popular file-sharing application – uTorrent.


Perhaps, you already know that way for 3rd parties to track file-sharing activity of the Internet users is through the IP-address. However, there’s another source of data that may expose them: the peer id. Of course, the BitTorrent’s team of developers knows about this issue. That’s why they took a decision to solve the problem by integrating a new feature into the uTorrent’s code.

BitTorrent explained that it wants to introduce a new feature whose operation would randomize peer ids in an n-hour cycle in a bid to mitigate tracking of the Internet users during the use of non-private torrents. As a result, the control will increase for the uTorrent users of their own data and activity which they ask for and are entitled to.

It means that people using uTorrent will feel more secure, because 3rd parties won’t any longer be able to track the peer id for longer than a few hours. Since IP-addresses are concerned, the users must always be careful, particularly when using public trackers. Of course, any Internet user worries about the free flow and use of his or her personal data and habits.

That’s why BitTorrent Inc. works on the features that are aimed at protecting privacy of the customers of such companies as Microsoft, Google, and Firefox. This move would bring the users more control of their data through user-friendly private browsing features. Of course, privacy is always an issue in the talk about file-sharing, but BitTorrent gives us hope that this issue might one day turn into a matter of the past.

skreamer avatarThere was an article about Utorrent including ads a while back. Likely with that I'd imagine. It would be a sweetener to entice the utorent upgrade.

But when I dunno.

No avatarI wouldn't worry about this to much as the add supported version of Utorrent is to risky. and FYI Utorrent 3.0+ is not usable on a lot of privet trackers as its got issues.

do you Honestly believe that ALL P2P traffic is monitored? LOL, if you do then you must be scared, and that's just how they want it.

elrego avatarIf you properly trace all windows connections when you are on the internet, using any program like portexplorer, for example, you will find a lot of nameless companies intruding and sniffing on your traffic, including the FBI. How can they own huge stacks of ips and nor have a name? They are authorized by ICANN to hide it. Stuff like NSA, CIA and shit like that. The anonymous version would be an asset for all of us.

No avatarelrego I dont worry about CIA or FBI as they are out there to catch real criminals, I dont download porn or am a pedophile, so for me its ok for them to be there, I have nothing to hide and I can assure you they dont worry about little people like us they are after big fish in the sea not us downloaders. Monitor yes they do and know a lot more then we think, but not after small time downloaders they search for criminals everywhere.
