Fake torrents on the Piratebay are very annoying to deal with. So how can you know if a Torrent is fake? follow below tips.
- If there is a lot of white space under the torrent info, it’s a red flag. A long vertical white space hints to someone trying to stop you from seeing comments because other users may comment that the torrent is indeed Fake.
- Click on the username of the original torrent poster OP. See if he/she has other torrents, and if comments say “Fake” in other torrents he uploaded, then chances are the torrent your viewing is also fake.
- Another way to know is by the title, if the title sounds too good to be true then it probably is. For example, if a movie currently in Theatres also shows up as a torrent marked DVD rip. Then there is a good chance that’s a fake one.
- Movie torrents with .wmv extensions should be avoided as that format can allow popups to websites. You can trust .MKV .AVI and .MP4 which are the most common.
- When you are dealing with apps, make sure the app torrent your downloading is the size that it is expected to be. Nearly all apps are over 2 megabytes in size. Viruses and trojans are often small sizes. Your Anti-virus will often do a good job catching these viruses or trojans, but keep in mind that AV’s can also cause a false positive. AV’s may think an app is bad when that app may just be a crack or patch which is harmless.
All the Scammers love to make money by uploading Torrents to get users infected or to get them to participate in fake surveys.
