Ever since the legal issues with Limewire ensued, I switched to using Frostwire, and I've been using it (supposedly with no problems) ever since. The Public Libraries I've been to even use it... so naturally, I thought it was perfectly safe. I've always used to in order to share PUBLICLY-SHARED and LEGAL files, which included movies and TV shows that were at PUBLIC ACCESS.
I just finished getting my Internet service (or rather my girlfriend's, since I'm currently having to live at her house, though I'm paying 95% of the bills) turned back on because I downloaded and viewed the movie "Machete," and an episode of "Batman: The Brave And The Bold," which again were supposedly PERFECTLY, 100% LEGAL TO DO SO, CONSIDERING THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE IN PUBLIC ACCESS/VIEW.
Because of this, my girlfriend has ordered that I am no longer allowed to use Frostwire, due to her name being on the bill and being threatened by the ISP with having the Internet service totally and completely banned, and possibly her going to jail because of the fact that even though I'm doing the same exact thing that the public libraries are doing (with no same/similar repercussions to them) and using Frostwire LEGALLY, these threats have been put upon her/us.
I THOUGHT FROSTWIRE WAS SAFE??? APPARENTLY, IT'S NOT AND NOW I'M BEING MADE TO SUFFER EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES BECAUSE OF IT!!!
I even contacted the manufacturer of my wireless router in order to ask why my IP address is no longer invisible, even though THAT was the way it WAS set up to begin with (set aside the fact that I was under the impression that Frostwire ALSO made sure I was protected from my IP address being advertised concerning every single thing I looked at, using this program). But apparently, the manufacturer changed this, and Frostwire has no problem with showing my IP address to companies who are now under the false impression that I was illegally downloading material that I was made to believe was actually LEGAL.
I need for somebody to PLEASE e-mail me at gargoylegraffiti at yahoo dot com and tell me of a different file-sharing program that IS 100% safe and secure in protecting me from getting such false allegations from companies that I am LEGALLY sharing with ever again. I am OBVIOUSLY not safe on Frostwire any longer (if I ever was at all, it seems) and I have absolutely no confidence in it anymore, unless somebody can help me do differently.
I would like to simply ask if there's a way that somebody could help me to make my IP address invisible, especially on Frostwire. But, as I said, I have been ordered by my girlfriend, that I am no longer allowed to use Frostwire in ANY capacity, no matter what other security measures I install into it now or ever, while I am living here... ALL BECAUSE I WASN'T AS PROTECTED ALL ALONG, AS I WAS LED TO BELIEVE.
Once again... I need for somebody to tell me of a different file-sharing program that IS 100% safe and secure in protecting me from getting such false allegations from companies that I am LEGALLY sharing with ever again.
While I wait to hear back from somebody with this information, I'll be QUITE busy typing up my counter-statement in order for my ISP in order to try and clear my name concerning the 2 offenses that have been falsely put on my record already because of Frostwire's 100% NON-secure program.
