Torrents have been the go-to solution for anyone who needed to download a movie, TV show, software or any other form of digital content. The most crucial use-case of Torrent websites is that they’re peer-to-peer and so can be used to generate and share documents, audio or video freely that could be of potential use for someone else.
While they’ve been continuously at war with authorities, many torrent sites have still found ways to flourish in today’s growing age of the Internet. If you do intend to download a torrent file or visit torrent sites, a VPN is highly recommended.
