The application is completely free to download and use. Simply locate a link for the desired link for the version of the software use to complete the download process and then install it on your computer or PC quickly and conveniently.
The creators of the software respect the privacy of users and do not monitor the content that they share or who they share it with. This information is stored solely on the computers of users and is not collected by the servers, while it also may be encrypted in certain cases to make it even more secure.
The software can be used with a wide range of different types of operating systems such as Mac OSX, PC and Linux. However, it should be noted that certain content that is made available by the software may not be compatible with some operating systems.
The Azureus BitTorrent application that Vuze is based on is open source software. Most of the individual torrents that are available to download are also open source and can be used without incurring legal issues, although certain torrents may be copyrighted and it is always a good idea to check before downloading a torrent.
Azureus is the original BitTorrent application that Vuze is buil on and was. Azureus was developed as a special open source project in 2003. The project was named by one of the original developers after a species of poison dart frog that can be found in the South American country of Suriname.
A special peer-to-peer content distribution system has been developed that breaks large files into smaller pieces and then distributes them in parallel so that they can be downloaded by several different computers at the same time. Because each person who is downloading the file receives only a small piece at a time the download speed is increased dramatically.
While the software itself does not work as a virtual private network (VPN) other VPNs can be used along with the software to help encrypt data and enhance the security of users and those who wish to transfer data via a VPN will find this very easy to do.
The software can be used on Mac safely and securely due to the special safety measures that have been put in place by the creators. The information on the Macs of individual users is not uploaded to the servers or looked into in any way to help maintain the privacy and security of users.
Every effort is taken to make sure that the software is free from viruses. However, because the open source content can be created and shared by any user, there is no way of guaranteeing that this content will not be malicious or contain viruses and users should try to stick to trusted sources for their downloads.
