Yes, absolutely. In fact, the Usenet is one of the safest alternatives for file sharing, ahead of alternatives like torrenting and even TOR (The Onion Router). This is due to the fact that your IP address is not visible to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) when you’re downloading since (depending on the provider) it is possible to access the Usenet via encrypted ports, making use of a handy SSL protection. However, this is not magic and you’ll still be visible to your Usenet provider, so if you want to remain invisible even to them then make sure you pick one with a trustworthy no-log policy.
Also, don’t forget that the majority of Usenet providers additionally offer VPN services, too, which adds another layer of security to make your connection as safe as it can be. Activate the VPN first and make sure to use an SSL encrypted port and there’s pretty much no way that anyone could lay an eye on your Usenet session. However, the best way to remain as safe as possible is to stay away from copyright material, which the download and distribution of is obviously illegal.
