Message: "Warning: Torrent Traffic Active" when I download files using a torrent client or application

This message indicates that Norton WiFi Privacy has detected an active torrent traffic and has disabled the VPN connection.

An active torrent traffic leaves your computer vulnerable to security threats and attacks. It may also result in loss of your personal information and data. Norton WiFi Privacy does not allow or protect active torrent traffic generated by a torrent client on your Windows PC or Mac.

Exit the torrent client or stop all the downloads and uploads from the torrent client, and then turn on Norton WiFi Privacy VPN again.
