NEW: How to use VPN-Drop Protection on FrostWire (Experimental Alpha Feature for Desktop)

Starting FrostWire 6.4.6 as our first experimental feature we’re introducing a Privacy Protection feature for VPN users out there.

FrostWire will detect if your VPN connection drops and if you have this setting activated FrostWire will automatically stop all BitTorrent transfers to protect your privacy.

This is a really important setting if you want to protect your privacy on the Internet as you won’t accidentally be transferring or sharing files using your local IP address.

How to use VPN-Drop Protection?

1. Go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Experimental > Check Alpha


2. On the same setting screen go to BitTorrent > Advanced and check the box.

Then apply settings, and the protection should be on.

Warning, this is an Alpha feature, use at your own risk. On our next release it could be promoted to beta as we continue to test and optimize And then show the screenshot of the warning and how the feature works.


FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including support for the BitTorrent protocol and a full blown media player.
