We’re not sure how many of you guys have been exposed to this article:
It is important for us to say a few words on this matter to clarify where we stand on this and the things we’re doing to keep our users Troll safe!
First of all, there’s no way to prove that the users who were fined were actually viewing torrents using Popcorn Time. From what we gather the word Popcorn Time was not mentioned not even once in the letters the users received.
But still this topic concerns us and if what’s written in the article is true and happened to Popcorn Time users, then we’re very sad to see this.
FYI: Our Android app encrypts the bittorrent traffic from the start and now our alpha 4.0 version which will soon turn into Beta 4.0 also encrypts the bittorrent traffic.
This is the first and ONLY release of Popcorn Time which protects the users- and we worked super hard to make this available ASAP once we witnessed these trolls in action.
AND since this subject is really important to us, we are also going to offer a built in VPN in our apps very soon, proving once more our loyalty to this project
Rock ON users!!!
