Why wouldn't it?
It is just a vpn service.

The VPN traffic is not controlled anyhow.
But I'm wondering, since you posted this question on the Avast SecureLine for iOS forum, if you're thinking about using the connection from your iOS device... Is this right?

Free VPN servers limit download torrents. I have already written to the correct branch, sorry:-)

No they don't.
It depends on the provider of the vpn service if torrents are allowed (limited) or not.

Thank you for yet another indirect answer:-)
I would accept this answer - "Avast VPN allows you to upload torrents."
Thanks anyway, the topic can be closed.

You did not answer the question on the topic.
You do not seem to read my question in the topic.
jobert replied - "The VPN traffic is not controlled anyhow".
Wrong answer. CyberGhost in the free version does not allow to download torrents. That is, VPN traffic is controlled.
Eddie told me - "It depends on the provider of the vpn service if torrents are allowed (limited) or not."
I had a simple question about a particular VPN Avast - "Avast VPN allows to download torrents?"
Well, I'll try to empirically and take a trial version of Avast.

Learn how to read, we for sure did answer your question.
You are failing in understanding it, nothing we can do about it.

Sorry if I was not clear. I didn't want to mean VPN traffic in general. In case of SecureLine for iOS, I can tell the VPN traffic is not controlled (which means you could use for these means). But, as far as I know, you can not do that using a non-Jailbroken device.
I recommend you to post topics related to the desktop version on the appropriate forum.
VPN connection may work differently on other platforms due to different technologies used in each case - besides other matters.
If you have any questions regarding SecureLine for iOS, or questions regarding issues on iOS in general that you think we could solve, I'd be glad to help you.

Regards,

Jobert
