“How can I be absolutely safe while streaming or downloading torrents?” As an expert in the field, this question has been placed before me on more occasions than one. From students to housewives Many people ask me about the world of torrents, how their download and streaming work, and whether they are safe or not. Sometimes, they ask me about the best places to find the safest torrent sites from where they can avoid viruses and malware attacks while downloading torrents. Well, the bottom line is that if you have decided to get into the happening places where torrents are the buzzword, then you should be doubly sure that you are not setting the stage to get infections or malware on to your computer. Here, I have compiled some smart and effective tips that need to be followed on torrent sites for ensuring safe and truly enjoyable experiences.
It is best to pay attention to comments published on the torrents. It is also good to avoid the ones that are sans any comments or feedback. The torrent sites that are used frequently for downloading and testing by regular users, especially those who take the measures to leave behind helpful comments for other users to follow, are the ones that are supposed to be safer than the others and depict higher levels of credibility. In most cases, the user feedback is helpful for gauging whether a particular torrent has been discovered with malware within it or not. Moreover, the comments are considered to be reliable as only those users who are genuinely interested in downloading reliable torrents would be commenting to set precedence for others.
- Pay more attention on what is being downloaded
It is best to download or stream torrents that have high seeds and fastest download speeds. Generally, the ones with high seeds are considered to be legitimate and can be downloaded with lower risks.
- Work with the sandbox technology
If you are still unaware of the sandbox technology for your system, then, it is high time you got into the act and started researching upon how a sandbox would protect critical system files as well as operating systems from malicious threats. This technology takes care of these threats by quarantining the bad files from the word go.
So, are you ready for downloading safe torrents only?
