First, what means peer to peer?
In a P2P (peer-to-peer) network, the “peers” are computer systems that are connected to each other via the Internet. Files can be shared directly between systems on the network without the need for a central server. In other words, each computer on a P2P network becomes a file server as well as a client. The only requirements for a computer to join a peer-to-peer network are an Internet connection and P2P software (Vidict Peer).
How does Vidict Peer work?

Does Vidict Peer work on mobile devices?
Yes. Vidict Peer is available on mobile devices also. They can benefit from P2P by downloading from other peers.
How secure is the Vidict Peer service?
Vidict Peer uses the WebRTC data channel to transfer data between users. The data channel is secured using SCTP protocols and TLS encryption. Communication with the Vidict Peer backend is done via secured WebSocket, which also uses TLS encryption.
