Will this slow my downloads?

As with all privacy-enhancing software, there is some cost in terms of performance. However, SwarmScreen offers you an intuitive tuning knob to control the privacy/performance tradeoff -- higher privacy may result in some performance loss as some of your bandwidth is allocated to hide your real traffic. We call our tuning knob SPF (SwarmScreen Protection Factor) -- analagous to sunscreen, the higher the setting, the more privacy you get. Lower SPF values reduce privacy but give you better download performance, so you can pick the trade-off between privacy and performance.
