Peer2Profit Review: Earn Money Doing Nothing

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

Peer2Profit is unique in that you can share your traffic and profit on it.  That’s it.

Unlike the many ways I talk about making money, such as surveys, completing offers or even yielding phone calls, Peer2Profit requires no work on your end.  You just need to install an application and run it to earn cash.

If you want to earn a simple passive income, then Peer2Profit may be something to consider; however, don’t expect to get rich like the many applications I talk about.  You can make some extra cash, but it’s going to be a slow-going ride.  If you’re okay with that, then this may be a review for you.

What is Peer2Profit?

Peer2Profit simply will take any unused internet bandwidth you’re not using at the moment and share it with their customer.  They then use this unused bandwidth and then share it with advertisers, marketers and analytic companies.

And, how do they make money, you may be wondering?

Simply put, the advertisers who use Peer2Profit will use your bandwidth for market research, social media account management and much more.  For example, they may want to use your bandwidth to determine what a competitor is charging you on their website.  They may also use it to check out advertisements you are seeing.  These advertising companies then turn around and use the data they compiled to sell to anyone who needs this research.

Peer2Profit works with a variety of banks, social networking sites, internet agencies and so much more.  Everyone they work with is 100% verified, making it very safe to use, as every company on board needs to sign an agreement to use your data legally.

Is it Safe?

Peer2Profit will argue it is, but I’m going to go on a whim and say I’m not a fan of it.

Whenever you install any software on your computer, you have to be leery.  In this case, Peer2Profit will be able to spy on your network traffic, which allows them to monitor ANY of your unencrypted traffic.  In the cyber security world, this is a huge NO NO.

Whenever you download any software, there are risks involved as well as vulnerabilities.  If you were to have any sensitive documents on your computer, you’re putting this at risk as this software could gain access.

This is why if you were to use this software, you only use it on a device that has NOTHING on it.  I’m talking about a device with nothing.  You let it run and you collect your passive income.  Even then, however, the software could still spy on your devices connected to your router, so you may have to go one step future and connect to a hot spot that has no other devices on it.  This is a lot of work to make only a few dollars.

You have to ask yourself if a few dollars is worth risking your IP address quality score.

How to use Peer2Profit

To start earning with Peer2Profit, you will need to install software and run it either on your desktop or mobile device.  This software is necessary to earn cash as this is how they will use your bandwidth.

Once you sign up for a free account, you can download the software, which you will see a link directly on your dashboard.

At the moment, the software is available for Windows, Linux and Ubuntu computers; however, you cannot use it on a Mac.  This may change in the future, however, I wouldn’t count on this in the future as most Apple products are very aggressive in blocking these types of services.

After you install the software, you will go through a very simple setup process, no different than that of installing software on your computer.

When you’re done downloading it, then all you have to do is simply let this software run in the background and it will do all of the work for you.  That’s it.  As I mentioned, it’s truly a passive income piece of software that requires nothing on your part.  You can check in on it on occasion to see if it’s running, but other than that, you can surf your computer as you normally do.

NOTE:  You can also download the Peer2Profit app on Android, and you can find it via the Google Play Store.

Making Money with Referrals

Aside from allowing the software to run in the background, you can also earn by referring your friends.

And, for every friend you refer, you will earn 50% of their income, which is very high for the industry.  Most money-making sites either give you 10 to 20% or give you a flat rate.  As you can imagine, this will add up fast.

While you won’t make much using the software, you can make much more if you refer quite few friends.

Use the special URL on the dashboard or use your referral code separately to get credit for every referral.

How Much Can You Make?

The thing I like about Peer2Profit is that they don’t fluff the numbers.  They let you know exactly how much you can make.

To determine how much you can make will depend on a few factors, such as how long you let the software run and mainly, where you live.

When you log into your dashboard, you should see a map that looks something like the image above.  The darker the green, the more you can make.

On average, if you live in the United States, Canada, Australia or parts of Europe, you can make about $4~ per month, per IP address.  Anywhere else, you can expect to make less than this.

For every GB of data you share, expect to earn anywhere from $0.30 to $1, and this will depend on your geographical location.  In the end, plan on making maybe $1 to $4 a month while using your computer quite aggressively.

With these types of sites, you will never make much, so don’t let it surprise you; however, if you were to refer your friends, this could be much higher, of course.

Getting Paid

When it comes time to get paid, you can see that there are a variety of options to choose from:

Payouts start at $1, but you can see, the minimum payout will depend on which option you choose.

If you want Litecoin, for instance, you only need $1, however, if you want a bank card, it will be as high as $20.  Nonetheless, you can cash out for as little as $1 if need be.

Keep in mind that the company always changes its payout options, so what you see now could change in the future.

Signing Up

If you are interested in joining, it’s as easy as adding your email and a password.  If you have a referral code, you can do so at this time.  If you don’t have one, feel free to use mine, 1664991653633dc1a5cd879.

Peer2Profit supports all countries, but as I mentioned, every country will vary as to how much you can make.  Just because you join doesn’t mean you can make money.

Once you confirm your e-mail address, you can immediately download the software and start earning.

Final Thoughts

4/10In the end, you have to ask yourself a few questions.

Are you happy sharing your IP address and information while using your computer?  I personally don’t like the idea of it, but I know some people are different in this opinion.  If you do go this route, please make sure you’re smart with your decisions.  I guess you could always use an inactive computer/mobile phone that runs 24/7 like I mentioned.  That way, you don’t have to worry about it tracking you or other parts of your network.

Another thing you have to ask yourself is if this software is worth a few dollars a month?  These passive income apps don’t pay much, but, again, you could earn more if you refer friends.  10 friends earning $4 a month could be $20 in your pocket.  That does add up.

As long as you have the mindset you won’t get rich AND the software is using your IP address for research purposes, then go ahead.  If not, there are a million other ways to make money legitimately online.

That’s going to do it for now.
