A BitTorrent tracker is a server that assists in communication between two or more BitTorrent P2P computers, and zum.bi has a free public server to assist with these communications.
Since 2019-10-25, by shortening a link on our service, you will have the option of indexing them or not to our tracker. As part of our rule of trust and transparency with you, it is important to note that shortened magnetic links prior to this date have not been and will not be changed and/or tracked.
Even if you dont shorten your link on our service, you can add it to our tracker by including the address http://tracker.zum.bi:6969/announce in your tracker list.
The goal of our tracker is just to speed up and increase the availability of your torrent files on the network. We do not store or capture information that is unnecessary to the operation of the service and that may identify you. If you often download/upload via torrent and are concerned about your privacy and security we suggest hiring a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service, some of them also promise to increase your transmission speed. Check out some of them:
Since 2019-10-20, with the exception of torrent links, all shortened links on our platform have been verified by Google Safe Brownsing ®. We are working hard to check shortened links before this date as soon as possible.
Google Safe Brownsing ® helps identify malicious links that may contain social engineering (phishing) attacks, unwanted software, and malware. However, it is important to note that the service may not be exact or perfect:
"Google works to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information about unsafe web resources. However, Google cannot guarantee that its information is comprehensive and error-free: some risky sites may not be identified, and some safe sites may be identified in error."
Our goal is to increase security without giving you the freedom to choose, so we choose not to block/delete potentially insecure links but to display a notification and request permission from the user to proceed with the redirect.
