Privacy & Security (8)
Does Seedr use my internet to fetch files?
No. Seedr uses our own cloud to add files directly from the internet to your account. That's how your files get there so fast, up to 100MB/s. That is also why you can start a transfer into Seedr and close the site. Seedr never does anything on your device. For example, once you've added a link, you don't need to keep your device connected to the internet, or even powered on. You may come back later and have your files immediately available…
Can anyone see my IP address?
No. Seedr handles all that for you by using our servers and networks, not yours. Using our system completely separates your devices from the outside network, and keeps your device sterile, private, and safe. There is no need to use a VPN to hide your IP address from the web since you are never directly connected to it when transferring files with Seedr.

Can anyone see what I download?
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.
