Blog and Twitter bonuses are checked personally by us to see if they are valid. This usually takes several days, and can take up to a week.

Find it at Seedr - Get Space and you and your friends can all get extra space. See How to: Get More Space for more information.

No. Seedr encrypts all your connections so neither your ISP nor anyone in the middle can see what you download to your cloud.

Are my files checked for viruses?

No. We are working on integrating both NOD32(for scanning files) and Kaspersky(for server security) to have a double layer of protection. Once the system is ready, Seedr users with paid plans will be automatically warned whenever we detect their storage has a file containing viruses. Files viewed directly on Seedr are safe. If you download files from Seedr to your device, or use Seedr via FTP or WebDAV, you are taking a risk.

Do I need a VPN when using Seedr?

Using a VPN with Seedr is usually not recommended. Seedr traffic is already encrypted, and you never actually connect to the download network while using Seedr. Using a VPN may not do much, other than hurt your streaming and download performance from Seedr.

There is no limit on the number of files you can add to your Seedr storage. However, there is a limit on the total storage capacity.

Once you've reached your limit you may delete files to clear room for new ones, upgrade your account, or get bonuses.
