While some say Most Popular Torrent Sites in 2020 are the Best Torrent Sites at the same time, we respectfully disagree.
Things we look for
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
🏆 Our picks
We are regularly checking and updating this list.
Never torrent without a VPN!
To see how you can protect yourself, check out our article on Best VPN for Torrenting.
It is possible that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) blocks some of these sites, a VPN can help you with that too.
How can I visit torrent sites safely?
We recommend you to use the free browser extension called NoScript. It protects you by blocking all scripts on websites by default, allowing you to only whitelist sources that you deem trustworthy.
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. Keep in mind that you may only use the Tor Network for visiting websites, 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.
