IPREDator Beta Launched this Week

This week kicked off the closed beta of IPREDator, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) operated by the developers of The Pirate Bay. Unlike the torrent website, IPREDator offers anonymous Internet access by replacing the end-users IP address--assigned by the ISP--with a new address using a 128-bit encrypted VPN tunnel. This prevents 3rd-party monitoring software from successfully tracking data to and from the end user's PC. The new IP address also bypasses ISP-defined limitations.

"IPREDator does not store any personal details about its clients," stated an email to the beta clients. "IPREDator does not store any traffic habits you might have. IPREDator is the key to a free internet in the renaissance of censorship!"

According to ITnews, IPREDator offers greater security than its competitors--Perfect Privacy, Torrent Freedom, and Witopia to name a few--because the VPN originates in Sweden; local law does not (presently) enforce companies to surrender user information unless the conviction results in at least two years in jail.

As it stands, IPREDator will remain in beta until further notice, allowing only 180,000 registered beta testers to test the secure network. When officially launched, the service will cost around $7 USD per month.

    Do you really think that the developers of pirate bay would allow a crack for their own software on Piratebay? I doubt it.

    In any case, what are you people doing on the internet which is so shady you need anonymity...Oh that's right... pirating. figures.

  • Shady?
    Laws vary from country to country.
    What one individual perceives to be 'good' others may think the opposite and vice verse.
    In order to ensure freedom of privacy for people to do whatever they wish on the Internet, then no monitoring of their activities should be in place as it defeats the whole purpose of privacy.

    Using the argument 'If you're innocent, you have nothing to hide' is completely idiotic in my personal opinion.
    Some people are more private than others and may perceive 'trivial' aspects as something that shouldn't be seen by others.

    Making assumptions that this is just another way to cover up illegal activities is just that, an assumption, which for numerous people won't hold ground.

    If you feel comfortable with the fact your every move is being monitored and are going to be penalized grossly for the smallest infraction, then go ahead.
    Unless the individual decides to share what they are doing with others online, to have free access to their life and everything else would give the people in power even MORE power.

  • Yup, trust a company that survives on theft and law breaking to guard your privacy. That's funny.
