A BitTorrent client is an app used for peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. Such a program can prepare, request, and transmit any type of computer files over a network with the help of BitTorrent protocol. Computer with a running instance of a client app is considered a peer, hence peer-to-peer connection. To share an initial file, a small file with a 'torrent' extension is created on a peer machine. The torrent file contains metadata about the shared files and about the tracker, the computer coordinating distribution. In order to download shared files, peers need to obtain a torrent file first and then connect to a tracker, which coordinates them with other peers they can download pieces of file from.

Torrent downloaders should consider a VPN as an essential app for safety torrenting. Using torrents doesn’t exclude a possibility to get empty files from insecure resources. In such case the risk to infect your computer with malware or to clutter it up with spam significantly increases. You need to choose a reliable and reputable tool to not only download content from the web but also to protect your operating system from viruses and adware.
