How to download torrents safely without getting caught


Disclaimer: we don’t advise anyone to download or distribute copyrighted material on the internet illegally. After all… it’s illegal…

Millions of people are using torrenting websites to looks for files on the internet and download them. As I write this there are 6.761.168 registered users on The Pirate Bay (the most popular torrent website) and over 6 million torrents to choose from. Whether it’s movies, music, software or anything else – there’s a torrent for everything. But how do you download a torrent file to your computer anonymously and without leaving footprints that would lead right to you?

Those who use torrents on a regular basis know, that everything they download can be traced back to them, and, if there’s any illegal file down/upload going on, they can face charges and some serious fees. However, there are ways to download torrent files completely anonymous, without letting anyone know that you downloaded anything.

Some suggest using an expensive VPN service or a proxy that would hide ones IP address, some tell you to move to another country with no extradition… There’s also both free and paid software (VPN proxy like BTGuard) that you can download onto your computer, but this is generally way too complicated compared to the method described below. You won’t need to enter any custom settings, download or even install anything at all!

Let me just share the best way I know how to safely download torrents without getting caught and setting off any red flags.

Best way to download torrents anonymously

How awesome would it be if you could just ask someone to download the torrent you like and then just get the file from them? Well, there is a service that does exactly that.

Myfastfile is a service that acts as a middle man between you and the file you want to download. Instead of downloading a file from any given server straight to your computer, which makes it traceable, you can just tell Myfastfile what to download for you and then take the file straight from their protected servers, absolutely anonymous.

It is as if you asked your friend to download something for you, and the only thing you would to is collect a thumb drive with the downloaded file on it. This way your involvement in the download is completely untraceable and no one will ever know that you were behind the torrent download.

How to use the Myfastfile Downloader

First of all, get yourself a Myfastfile premium account. It’s not that expensive actually: it can go as low as $0.21 per day with the 12 month plan. If you just want to test the service you can go ahead and purchase a 1 month premium account for $12.99. The most popular options are the 3- and 12 month accounts, which cost $9.99 per month and $6.57 per month respectively. These are one time only payments, not recurring!

After that, open the Downloader, paste your torrent link (or magnet link) inside the box and press submit. Now Myfastfile will download the file you have selected for you, and you can download it straight from their servers. You don’t even need to install a torrent client or any other software on your computer.

Since many people use the service, you will find that some torrents will download “instantly”, simply because Myfastfile already has the file on their servers. After telling Myfastfile to download a torrent for you, you will have around 3 to 6 days (always different for some reason) to download the file to your computer safely and without letting anyone know.

Download torrents even faster!

When you download a torrent, you are usually automatically downloading it from multiple sources at the same time. However, you are often either limited by the speed of your broadband connection or the amount of people, who are sharing the file with you. So how can you download torrents even faster than you do right now?

As I already told you above, myfastfile stores loads of popular torrents in the cloud already, which allows you to download them straight from their servers. If the file is not yet in the cloud though, myfastfile will download it for you with an absolutely incredible speed: I saw speeds up to 200 Mbps!

Another cool trick myfastfile can do it streaming torrents. Since you’re probably using torrents to download movies in most cases anyway, there’s actually no need for you to download the whole file on your computer or mobile device. Just add the torrent to the Downloaded, let myfastfile download it for you and simply stream the whole thing without downloading it and needing to wait!

So, the fastest way for you to watch a popular movie torrent is simply taking the magnet link, adding it to the downloader and pressing Stream. All of that will take you 10 seconds (if the torrent is already in the cloud).

Myfastfile is the best torrent client replacement

Old-school torrenting methods are oftentimes not as secure as you think they are. By moving everything to the cloud you not only replace your uTorrent, BitTorrent or any other torrent client on your computer with a good looking web UI, but also hide your IP address from anyone who tries to find it without the need to use an additional VPN or proxy.

    Great informative article. Thanks. Can anyone tell me what the difference between d/l a torrent vs from premiumsize..cant they still see that it is illegal? Thanks

    • Silver (Guest)

      It is still illegal to download copyrighted material but the copyright holders that monitor the torrents will only see Premiumize downloading the torrent, not you.
      There is one (small) catch however. Copyright holders could then sue Premiumize and they could also obtain (through a court order) the details of all their customers and any download history that Premiumize might retain. The likelihood of this occurring depends upon the country that Premiumize is based in and how much that country co-operates with other countries that the rights holders are based in (eg USA).

    Why do these kinds of articles always have disclaimers about how pirating is illegal and that we shouldn’t do it, while telling us how to pirate illegally without being caught? Its not illegal to tell people how torrent. Even if you were targeted by a lawsuit, you think a judge is going to care about your disclaimer? It’s like someone lecturing me on why I need to be vegetarian, while stuffing their face with fried chicken.

  • godisafairytale

    Very informative advertisement. I enjoyed your ad. Now off to find an article on this topic.

  • Tania Kiara

    I use a Ivacy VPN for downloading torrents and I’ve never received any notice yet. So yeah I guess I’m anonymous online. Thank you for the article though!

  • Roxo

    Thanks!! I just got my second copyright infringement and I can’t afford a third hit! Luckily I just got DVR on a second television so between this and that I should be good.

  • Tiffany J. Francis

    In my experience, the most fastest and secure VPN for torrenting is PureVPN.

    • T-BAG

      i thought so too and then i was tracked!!! guess it’s not so secure now is it

      • Jarrett Garcia

        Hard to say. There’s a lot of factors to being secure, and most VPNs are different. Tracking is just one factor, and how were you tracked, are you sure you were tracked during your use of PureVPN, who tracked you etc..

  • Dante Knightwolf

    myfastfile isn’t 100% anonymous as they still have policies against Copyright they are required by law to retain your information during an infringment

    • DanielBulygin

      Hey Dante, I just talked to myfastfile, and it turns out that this is *not* true. Everything is 100% anonymous, although they might delete a file from their servers if they get a legal notice. So you’re in the clear 😉

  • Buck

    Great article! I’ve been wanting to download Windows 7 Ultimate Extreme Natalie X64. But I always will find a week torrent where nobody has seeded. Any help please?

  • Sabine Carpio

    Does it work even if the file I want it must to be paid? And Is it sure that the file that I want it’s on that page? Thanks for your answers

    A freaking ad! Bogus!

    I’ve had problems with my internet provider tracking copyright violations. Outside of my own ISP I have access to public wireless services. I’ve experimented with this and it seems my ISP never catches anything done using the public wireless. Thus I’ve figured that it’s safe. Am I wrong?

    • Jarrett Garcia

      Without knowing for sure, I would think ISPs would have trouble tracking it back to you when done on public wireless, but it is easier to track and spy on you locally through using the public wireless as your device is more easily accessible.

    Hey, nice work, Dan. I’ve been using Ivacy for streaming movies and downloading songs and comics and to download movies and games torrents. just got its 24-month deal for a little less than $40. The surfing experience has been pretty stress-free since. 😀

    An account service like this is exactly what I need! You won’t believe what happened to me today! First, I recently moved to NH from FL, been downloading torrent movies for years without a problem while using Bright House for my ISP. They had never contacted me, not even once! They rebooted my modem a few times when I was downloading a movie, but they never contacted me nor sent a letter, nothing! I was downloading movies late at night without uploading any data back (yes, I was a torrent leech) and Bright House totally left me alone! Here in NH with Time Warner was a different story! I only lived here not even 10 days and downloaded ONE movie using Deluge! I thought no big deal, maybe they’d send me a letter later, but no. It was worse than that! I began downloading a movie and instead of waiting for it to finish downloading I sat on the couch and accidentally fell asleep. When I woke-up I notice my PC had rebooted to the desktop for some reason and Deluge was no longer downloading nor open! I go to check for the movie and it hadn’t finished downloading. So I proceed to finish downloading the movie. No sooner the movie starts downloading my computer crashed! I couldn’t believe it! I reboot and the same thing happens again! My PC crashed THREE TIMES no sooner the movie began downloading!. Deluge was basically useless! Now I’m a computer nerd! I work and build PCs, laptops and cell phones as a hobby! My computers NEVER crash! Anyway I said screw-it and went to turn my TV on.. and guess what? My f___ cable box had been de-activated! I had to call Time Warner and explained that I just moved here and the cable/Internet account was in my landlord’s name, not mine! So the guy re-activates my cable TV box while denying that Time Warner was causing computers downloading torrents to crash! I was fricken livid not believing they somehow managed to either hack my PC or found a way to cause my torrent file handler (Deluge) to be useless!
