Security Suggestion: Because of security issue, we want to suggest you to not open these websites without using a proxy or VPN. Some of these websites could also be banned in your region, so it is always good to play a safe side. You can easily find a free VPN or a proxy of these websites online.

That’s all for this guys and happy Torrenting. And One thing to clear, I will personally recommend you to download only Free software or open source software from torrent sites and buy the paid software from official websites for your use.
