The 15 best torrent sites in 2022

With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning Super Bowl LV, pirates are in fashion in 2021. So let's see the list of the 15 best torrent sites in 2021, for all of you aspiring pirates. Now, keep in mind that torrenting itself is not illegal and it is a great way to download large files without worrying about losing your connection. The idea behind torrents is pretty simple. Instead of downloading files from a centralized server, torrents give downloaders the ability to download pieces of the files from different users that already have them, using free torrent clients. This is called peer-to-peer (P2P) downloading and of course, it can lead to much faster download speed compared to downloading from a centralized location.

Torrents are not illegal

Contrary to popular belief, torrents themselves are not illegal, they are just a technology to allow people to share their files and other people to download them. That is all there is to is, and in fact it is extremely useful. For instance, I use torrents to download my Ubuntu images whenever I need to install Linux on a desktop or laptop. This is totally fine and legal, as the images and the torrents themselves are provided by Canonical.

It is the nature of the file that is shared that creates problems. Sharing a movie, tv-show, a piece of software that is copyrighted and someone else's intellectual property is 100% illegal and I would not encourage anyone to go down that path.

That being said, in the list of best torrent sites I will present, you will find a mix of everything, literally everything, legal or not. Let's get to it then

Pro tip: Always use adblocking software to access torrent sites as their ad selection is sketchy, to say the least, and you can end up with malware or adware on your computer. Instead, I encourage you to disable your ad blocker for “Borderpolar” as it helps me keep the blog running (or it will eventually, right now, not so much). Using a VPN would make things even better.

uBlock Origin may be a disaster for publishers like us (and torrent websites) but it is an amazing tool with a ton of options to avoid being tracked block ads from running on your browser.

Torrents and VPN

Downloading torrents without a VPN makes your traffic visible to your ISP and third parties. Not only is this dangerous for your privacy, but it can go completely wrong if you engage in actual piracy when downloading content subject to copyright. Essentially, a VPN can protect you from getting caught. Using a premium VPN provider like ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or Cyberghost, will ensure that you are not at risk will keeping your connection stable and your download speed almost unaffected.

Alternatively, you can try some of the best free VPN providers but most of them come with data limits and/or bandwidth throttling. A premium VPN service will guarantee that you are safe rather than sorry.

What to look for in a torrent site

For me there are two primary things to look for when searching for the best torrent sites out there:

  • Trustworthiness: You don't want to end up downloading torrents from a website without any verified uploaders where anyone can upload any kind of content containing viruses.
  • Website traffic: High website traffic and popularity condone the trustworthiness of the torrent website, High popularity leads to content variety too and an active community that will moderate the uploaded content and report any problems with torrents. Moreover, this usually leads to a higher seeder/leecher ratio. Seeders are the users that own the full file you want to download while leechers are the ones downloading pieces of it. The more seeders a torrent, the more decentralized and consequently faster and reliable its download be. This is pretty great and you want to use torrent sites with a high seeder/leecher ratio and consequently higher file availability.

The Pirate Bay

The Pirate Bay Torrent site is one of the oldest and most popular BitTorrent sites of all time. You will find a wide variety of content in the Pirate Bay. The Pirate Bay is simple, and torrents are flagged and tagged to help you identify the safe ones. It remains the first go-to option for everyone downloading torrents in 2021 as it should be. But keep in mind that it is constantly under attack, so keep in mind to look for Pirate Bay mirrors. There are tons, just like for every torrent site on this list. The top torrent sites offer an extensive collection of mirrors.

The Pirate Bay remains the most popular site in the world and it is very hard to bring it down as mirrors will keep popping up.

YTS torrent sitenbsp image23
YTS Homepage


YTS is arguably the second most popular torrent name in the space behind Pirate Bay in terms of site traffic and overall appeal. This site has always been known for its impressive library of movies. YTS does an excellent job of populating movies with HD quality and small file sizes. You can browse and download YIFY movies (movies offered by the YIFY or YTS peer-to-peer release group) in excellent 720p, 1080p, 2160p 4K, and 3D quality, all at the smallest file size. 

YTS's library size is quite small compared to other torrent sites, but in general, if you are looking for a movie and it is available on YTS, I recommend getting it from there.

RARBG torrentsnbsp image24
RARBG Homepage


RARBG has the freshest and popular content in many categories, especially TV shows, Movies, and adult content. It also has a top 10 list that features the most downloaded content at any given time. The amazing thing about RARBG is that it offers the best quality for many movies, going up to 4K blu-ray resolution. Pretty great for those with ultra-high-resolution OCS (like me). RARBG is probably the best option for the latest adult content.

Torrentz 2nbsp image25

Torrentz2 is a torrent search engine, as it retrieves torrents from many different sources, some of which are part of this list. It is the successor of and it remains one of my favorite options for torrents due to the variety of torrents you can find and the hidden gems that you cannot find easily without Torrentz2. Its content is pretty much a union of some of the most popular torrent sites.

The website's traffic is in the millions and as a torrent aggregator, it has the largest torrent library available. You will definitely find a lot of low-health torrents but overall it is a great way to search for anything you want.
