Well, it might be. However, I would suggest to stay away from free VPN's, because who knows what they do with the collected data, gotta make profits somehow. Stick with known brands like NordVPN, or Buffered.
Private Internet Access.
kickasstorrents is working fine. TPB is also fine now.
Guys, if the sites are blocked in your country then use any of these 5 VPN Services recommended by other Redditors to bypass it.
Easy and simple.
I am using PIA and NordVPN without any issues.
Yeah, get a VPN and stop worrying about it.
Private Internet Access is a good one, and relatively inexpensive, you can even use it with your phone/tablet if you want.
If you really can't afford it (just remember what the fines are like if you were to get popped) here are some alternatives...
You asked a question...
>what are you guys using for anonymous downloads?
So i answered it with what i use...
>Private Internet Access.
Kickass Torrents is opening fine.
Guys, if your ISP is blocking the connection then simply use any of these 5 VPNs recommended by other Redditors to bypass the restriction.
I am using NordVPN and CyberGhost without any issues at all.
>KAT Staff confirmed the site is down due to DDos Attacks.
~~Edit, maybe not idk~~
If you're going to use a TPB mirror then why not just use the actual TPB site at https://thepiratebay.org/ ?
Otherwise, there's plenty of other sites you can use. KAT is gone so you might want to start looking into other sites
There are no 'current uploads' of KAT, because the whole site was taken down and if some site has a mirror of KAT they only have a very small subset of the original torrent database. Don't waste your time with those mirrors. They will most likely try to fool you into giving them your password or give you malware.
Try searching for what you need on distributed hash table sites like https://idope.se/ or on torrent crawler sites like https://torrentproject.se/
It's a sponsored link to a VPN (ExpressVPN). It generally only appears for unregistered users. Far as I know, it's a decent VPN for those who don't have one.
If you already use a VPN, you can ignore it. Registering will make it go away, but that's your choice.
Private Internet Access is indeed the best one out there. It also has an easy and reliable Kill Switch option in there, which entirely blocks your connection to the internet as long as the VPN is off. This prevents you from accidentally downloading something without your VPN turned on.
There is also the no-popups per-site switch, which is the first thing to try on such sites: <https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Per-site-switches#no-popups>. Though this "cures" the symptoms, not the disease.
Blocking just inline scripts rather than all 3rd-party scripts may also work better sometimes.
This is a cam, but its not too bad looking from the sample.
Im still waiting for a better version to watch, personally.
Current version of Jackett does in fact support the current KAT site at katcr.co
Just look at kickasstorrent.yml file in Jackett's Definitions folder.
Speaking of that, looks like your own app doesn't even support the rebooted KAT site (katcr.co).
JOY/UTR uploads are the best. Fact. KAT being copblocked by the feds has messed our lives up.
My method now is to
1) keep speed dials in firefox for: l337x.to, extratorrent.cc, and thepiratebay which has https://thepiratebay.org/user/JoyBell2/
2) make fun of the top ten movie torrents and smh in memory of KAT
3) and occasionally if it isn't on those three google it, click on the cached page of any one of the KAT search results, click "text only version" and download that torrent you were looking for and remember what browsing the web looked like on windows 95.
4) Say "wow the internet is shit since KAT was shut down. God I miss that site."
5) Sometimes say screw that noise and just enjoy the sweet ups from rmteam shaanig sharpysword (might be spelled differently idcrightnow) uh yeah and have https://www.twitch.tv/mega64podcast playing in the bg as you search.
There's no official mirror, KAT is gone.
Just start looking into other torrent sites to use: /r/kickasstorrents/comments/4ttnzs/now_that_kat_is_dead_what_are_your_favorite/
Or, since you want to use fake "KAT" sites that are really showing TPB links, perhaps just use TPB itself. Also see /r/tpb & /r/thepiratebay.
Not sure which mirror you're talking about. The .cd mirror I know offhand doesn't have new torrents (see the uploaded date).
There are other fake "mirrors" that have new torrents but they're actually TPB mirrors, so you're really just seeing torrents from https://thepiratebay.org/, maybe that's what you're referring to.
A lot of the groups mentioned above are for movies mainly in 720p. Definitely check out Condors on TPB for a lot of 1080p releases. Although I will say the only downside to them is that they don't upload as regularly as I would like.
There are two VPN lifetime subscriptions on sale currently at Stacksocial. One for $29.00 with one day left, and one for $9.00. The services are not that expensive really.
> Your ISP is probably blocking it. A VPN should allow you to connect.
Already using Private Internet Access. Can't recall if I have tried other PIA VPN Servers to see if that is the problem but that rings a bell. I'll give that a go tonight and see if that was the problem. Thanks for the suggestion.
Zenmate will try to scam you.
The speed is incredibly slow and laggy. The amount of available locations is low compared to other VPN services.
And what's worse, I subscribed to their service for $15 (6 months) and they activated a Paypal recurrent payment. They silently changed the 6 months-subscription fee from $15 to $250. If I hadn't noticed it they would have auto-charged me that amount of money at the end of the current period. Their service is definitely not worth $250 for 6 months. There are better alternatives out there. I can't believe they tried to pull that scam on me.
Avoid at all costs.
Prices when your subscription ends:
One way is to subscribe to a VPN service and activate it when downloading torrents. This will effectively 're-route' your IP address, so if someone tracked the IP address that downloaded that torrent, it likely wouldn't be traced back to you. Some suggest AirVPN, which is about $6-7 per month.
Honestly dont bother.
Go online, sign up for IBVPN and just turn it on to hide your downloading and turn it off when you are just surfing the web.
the internet slows down a bit, but its not worth getting ISP letters.
https://sonarr.tv/ is what i use. it automagically downloads and renames (and does metadata like wallpaper backgrounds for shows and tv show/episode descriptions) and moves the files to designated drives.
Now if i can just find a new torrent repository; which is why i'm on this thread in the first place.
Magnet links have been stripped and replaced by a redirect that asks to create a free account which in turn tries to redirect to an URL that is flagged as malicious:
Basically it is trying to jump on the bandwagon and monetize over nothing.
Most mirrors at least have magnets, this one is pure cancer.
And other web crawlers will allow you to do just that.
It will probably need some adjustments to the default install settings, with some trial and error you can get it to work.
This might be late but I've found a pretty easy to install Illustrator CC 2015 here: https://zooqle.com/adobe-illustrator-cc-2015-19-0-1-x86-x64-2015-pc-repack-by-d-ako-6y4wg.html
and Photoshop: https://zooqle.com/adobe-photoshop-cc-2015-1-20151114-r-301-2015-pc-repack-by-d-ako-e3g8j.html
I haven't tried Photoshop yet but I did install Illustrator and it worked for me.
That is stuff from before the collapse. I did find this afternoon where he did a test post I think on 1337.
Just the one book, but it is since the shutdown. Marty was my main supplier you might say.
Zeronet is a band-aid at best... A clever architecture for handling relatively small websites that fit its model. What we really need is a generic, trustless, distributed block storage system like IPFS. That can get rid of torrents, magnet links, and hopefully http by storing everything in a single "DHT"-like graph.
Copy into your "Run..." bar or BitTorrent client:
Photoshop CS6 - magnet:?xt=urn:btih:6ce4c1686cab55cb21ed6bd54aeef36a49550431&dn=Adobe+Photoshop+CS6+13.0.1+Final++Multilanguage+%28cracked+dll%29+%5BC&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.leechers-paradise.org%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fzer0day.ch%3A1337&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.coppersurfer.tk%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fpublic.popcorn-tracker.org%3A6969
Sony Vegas Pro+ - magnet:?xt=urn:btih:0e61f74fd57e62b2d3247dd5d40ab16a540e335a&dn=Sony+Vegas+Pro+13.0+Build+453+%28x64%29+%2B+Patch+DI&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.leechers-paradise.org%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fzer0day.ch%3A1337&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.coppersurfer.tk%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fpublic.popcorn-tracker.org%3A6969
Just a note, not everything is on KAT.
For some things, if KAT doesn't have it - Try the old sites.
I find I prefer torrents GRYM if I am not going for the raw disc with FGT
Star Wars Force Awakens
Copyright requests to take down from adobe, i'm assuming. Best to look in other torrent database sites. https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/12019334/Adobe_Photoshop_CC_2015_(20150529.r.88)_(32_64Bit)___Crack
Different VPN's have different services.
The one I use (Astrill...highly recommend life so much easier in China, and continues to do so) has several different options. You can have only browser traffic go through the VPN, or, you can have all computer program traffic go through the VPN.
Double check to ensure you don't have a "stealth" mode that allows all computer traffic to go through it.
As the others have said, a VPN will basically end this. We have a sponsor on site (The little button that says "Torrent With Safety" It's a real offer not some weird ad) with ExpressVPN and I believe our affiliate link offers 3 free months. Not sure about the details, I literally just looked at the link now and it says 3 months. Never really paid attention to it before.
PIA is also a good option, I hear.
As for the notifications themselves, if you keep getting them over and over, they will eventually escalate. I've gotten 3 in my life, and ignored them all. They stopped once I started using a seedbox, and later a VPN.
I've jumped around a bit. I used PIA for a year, AirVPN for a year, and now I'm using ExpressVPN for a year. I would recommend AirVPN or ExpressVPN, but the latter is quite expensive. PIA had really slow servers.
VPNs are very easy to use. Just install and then click a button to connect.
Another route you could go is a seedbox. You can download torrents to it and then use FTP to download from the seedbox. Since your computer is never involved in the torrenting it will never be throttled and copyright trolls can't trace it to you.
> Is a VPN necessary to download stuff from pirate bay or extratorrents
Very much so. $5/month for a VPN service is nothing compared to what it offers.
If you're looking for a good VPN service, I personally recommend TorGuard but others such as PIA, NordVPN, AirVPN, BTguard and ExpressVPN are also good.
Seedboxes are also another option if you want to get involved in private trackers or if you just want to seed a lot.
I'm using NordVPN and it sucks for speed. Going to be changing once my subscription runs out. Spoke with tech support multiples times for up to 2 hours at a time and no solution (although they did try their best). It MAY be Comcast throttling me as I have seen reports of that being a possibility. Either way, in my case, I see about a 80-90% loss of speed
Personally I use IPVanish
They have a lot of servers all over the world and an easy user interface to navigate. It will ping the different servers and list the fastest ones first which is really nice. This ensures you will have almost no increased latency on your network. I think it's like 5$/month.
I'm sure there are other good VPNs as well but I haven't tried any other
Have you tried PureVPN (9.99/month)? Its working best for me in downloading torrents. Here is the list of torrents VPN with reviews and prices you can compare it online and get help in choosing best one.
Basically you connect to their servers and all your web traffic is routed through that server so to any website or online service you connect it will appear to them that you are wherever that server is. So if you live in California and connect to a server in Canada, to the online world, you're now in Canada.
Saves you from this sort of hassle because you're impossible (well incredibly hard) to track.
I'd suggest doing your own research to see which VPN service is best for you but if you do go with NordVPN I find it is incredibly easy to use and understand, very simple (another reason I like it) so you can just go on, fine a server with low latency and connect to and transport your online presence somewhere else.
I've been using Torguard for years and love it. Can't recommend enough. It's a paid proxy but it's unlimited speed and bandwidth and if you use the promo code TGLifetime50 you get 50% off for the life of the service.
