Torrents were downloading even when PIA Client disconnected
I'm very new to this PIA business.
To anonymize myself from my ISP and safely download torrents.
What I have done:
My PIA Client has the following settings:
I'm NOT using a proxy.
- I was downloading a few torrents through BitTorrent 7.7.3 on Windows 7 64-bit.
- The PIA Client was running and the icon was dark green ("Connected")
- I think I was on a bad server and intermittently the PIA icon would be light green ("Connecting"). When this happened, I was not able to browse, probably meaning the Kill Switch feature is working. However, my torrents were still running. This is very concerning to me because it would mean my IP is being leaked intermittently.
What I need:
I am looking for a solution to prevent this from happening and to anonymize myself.
[Also, if anyone has tips on how to increase download speeds, please let me know I am only getting 250kbps max when I was able to get around 1Mbps before I started using PIA]
