Is Torrentz2 Safe? Is Torrentz2 legal?

Torrentz2's predecessor portal, Torrenz has been closed in the past as it was deemed illegal. In fact, all sites that allow torrent downloads with copyrighted material are illegal. Downloading and sharing non-free and therefore pirated material is definitely illegal and carries very severe penalties. SoulTricks strongly encourages you to use torrent search engines, such as Torrentz2, just to download free material.

Of course Torrentz2 is a safe portal as it does not have malicious scripts and does not have a lot of invasive advertising. You can still protect yourself with an adblocker like AdBlock Plus for Chrome or a service VPN which will allow you not to be identified by IP address and to download anonymously.

Among the best VPNs I can recommend you:

  • Surfshark
  • NordVPN
  • ExpressVPN
