CanadianVPN allows peer-to-peer (P2P) and file sharing. However, they don’t allow sharing any copyrighted material.
Encryption and Logging
Even though Canadian VPN offers only OpenVPN through (SSL/2048 bit encryption), OpenVPN is considered to be the most secure and most recommended protocol as it ensures optimal protection for all internet activities, including: browsing, emails, VoIP sessions, gaming, streaming videos, torrenting, etc. However, OpenVPN isn’t supported by all devices, especially many hand devices, such as: smartphones and tablets.
As for logging, CanadianVPN doesn’t keep logs and never resells their users’ personal info in anyway, which is excellent and adds value to the service.
