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.
We are regularly checking and updating this list.
How can I visit torrent sites safely?
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)
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.
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.
