Can I trust qBittorrent's proxy option?

Post by yousef86 »

Hello there, I am using qbt and am a bit concerned about my ip being leaked, so I wanted to know if the proxy option (http) is completely safe.
I tried ipmagnet to see what my ip is and indeed it was my proxy server's ip but I don't know if it's consistent, like when I close my laptop and open it after a while will it for sure use the proxy server to route my traffic and only that?
Sorry for the long post.

If you set the proxy, qBittorrent will ONLY go through that. It's a fixed, set thing. It cannot bypass that setting, unless you mess it up somehow.
