@thatonecalculator This is the only real reason to have a VPN. Torrents use IPs to sync with the tracker.

Copyright groups grab IPs from trackers to send out copyright notices to your ISP.

@art@mastodon.sdf.org One more thing, I do use a VPN that's on one of my homeservers whenever I log into a public Wifi network (which is kinda rare, since I have unlimited).

@art Use Tor Browser for specific things that need to be anonymous. For everything else, you use your network like a normie.
