While some say Most Popular Torrent Sites in 2019 are the Best Torrent Sites at the same time, we respectfully disagree.

Attention: If you are simply interested in watching Movies or TV Shows, listening to Music or trying the latest Games, you can find other ways to do so. Check out our article on Is Torrenting Necessary?.

Things we look for

As BestTorrent does NOT condone or encourage piracy, or other illegal activities, we are looking at Torrent Sites from a strictly technical point of view. In our opinion the Best Torrent Sites should all have these things in common:

  • Active community
  • Torrents with trust signals (trusted uploader badges, verified torrents, feedback in comments)
  • The website should work with NoScript

It is possible that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) blocks some of these. A VPN can protect your privacy while torrenting and help you unblock websites. For more information, check out our comprehensive review of the Best VPN for Torrenting.

How can I visit torrent sites safely?

Most websites use Javascript to improve user experience and usability. While this is usually harmless, can also be dangerous.

Some torrent sites are shadier than others. We recommend you to use the free browser extension called NoScript, to block all scripts.

Unfortunately, most torrent sites do not work with scripts blocked.

a) Firefox + NoScript + VPN (preferred)

Firefox with NoScript is a very safe choice. Additionally, a VPN can protect your privacy when you are browsing torrent sites and running your torrent client, by hiding your real IP Address.

b) Tor Browser

With NoScript and other security enhancements baked in by default, Tor Browser allows surfing the web virtually anonymously through the Tor Network. Unfortunately, it is only for browsing sites, not running the torrent client with it.

Trust signals

It is a good idea always to choose torrents marked with trust signals, such as a trusted uploader, a verified torrent, or proper feedback in the comments.
