@iamdoubz actually, it is not Malwarebytes Privacy that is leaking your IP address, but rather it is the bittorrent client you are using. Bittorrent clients like qBittorrent for example, will bind to all adapters to establish a connection to the torrent thus circumventing the VPN tunnel connection. On top of this, most bittorrent clients are configured by default to work this way, so its a common misstep to encounter.

To change the binding behavior, you need to go into the settings of your bittorrent client and configure it to bind to the "mbvpn" adapter. This will force the bittorrent client to only communicate over that adapter. For example, here are the steps for doing this in qBittorrent:

  1. Open qBittorrent
  2. Click on Tools from the menu bar and select Options
  3. Click Advanced then select "mbvpn" from the Network Interface drop down menu
  4. Click on OK and restart qBittorrent
