Brave torrent manager encrypts downloads and hides the IPS?

I have a question about the torrent manager that has Brave incorporated …

Does the torrent manager hide the IPS and encrypt the downloads so that the contracted internet company does not know your downloads?


No – webtorrent is simply the P2P streaming client. You would need a VPN connection of some kind to do what you’re describing.

Seconded. While Brave can use Tor for private browsing, Tor cannot be used for any torrent protocol.

While Brave does a great job within the sphere of things it can control, there are still plenty of reasons to get a VPN to supplement the privacy features of Brave.
