The torrents have become one of the favorite ways to download for pirates, the reasons are many, the main ones are the download speed, the huge amount of shared material, the infrastructure without server difficult to block.
Torrents have only one, important, limit, compared to other file sharing methods like eMule, usually torrent clients do not offer an internal search engine, so it’s up to you to use appropriate sites, torrent search engines.
These sites index the torrents available on the network and allow them to be downloaded. In this article, we will talk about Torrentz2, a search engine different from the others, that will allow you with a single search to find torrents indexed by hundreds of other engines.
What is Torrentz2 and how does it work?
Torrentz2 is the clone of Torrentz, known and loved portal for searching and downloading torrents closed by the authorities because it is considered a pirate.
This portal is what is defined in jargon as a meta-engine (or aggregator), because it combines the results of the different search engines to provide the most complete results. The site is very popular, because it allows you to easily find even rare torrents, which on other portals, even famous, may not be indexed.
The portal has a minimal and effective interface, looking for a content is very simple, just enter its name in the search bar and click on Search.
For a long time, Torrentz2 did not allow direct download of the results, and it was necessary to convert the hash of the torrent file to magnet link. Now the situation has changed and it is simple and quick to click on the small magnet-shaped icon and download the content.
To download a content starting from the magnet link, it is always necessary to have a torrent client.
Is Torrentz2 illegal?
Torrentz, as we said, had been closed before being reborn as Torrentz2. In reality, in principle, this engine is no longer illegal than the engines it uses to provide you with the results.
No torrent search engine is, strictly speaking, illegal in itself, as these are sites that automatically index and categorize torrents available on the web. The use of an engine, therefore, is not in itself a crime, it is a crime to use it to download material protected by rights.
So it is a crime, pirate and download material that is not free. Downloading and sharing pirated material is a serious crime and you risk very serious penalties. Teknologya invites you to use these search engines only to find free material, and not to commit crimes.
Some torrent portals and some international sites, instead of advising, like us, not to commit crimes, recommend to have a good referenced VPN service. Their intent is clear, they recommend similar services because they allow their users to not be identified by their IP address, and then continue to download and share with impunity.
Is Torrentz2 safe?
The answer is yes, it is one of the safest torrent portals. Because it is not full of invasive advertising and has no cryptocurrency script at the moment.
In any case, when you use torrent portals, we advise you to equip yourself, a good adblocker and an addon to block the mineral scripts.
Regarding your identity, you should know that downloading via torrent for some known vulnerabilities, you also expose your IP address (and therefore indirectly your identity). If you particularly care about anonymity and privacy, you have to touch or leave the torrents, or have a good VPN service referenced no logs, we have dedicated an article to the best.
Why Torrentz2 is unattainable?
Because, like many other search engines for torrents, it is often blocked by injunctions of the judicial authorities in our country. So the providers, following these injunctions, are forced to remove their address from their DNS servers to make the site unreachable.
To circumvent this type of block, it is really simple, just change the DNS addresses of our local providers, with the best and international ones available on the net. Excellent international DNS are: DNS offered by Cloudflare, Google DNS, and Cisco OpenDNS.
Changing DNS is really simple, we invite you to consult our guide on this.
Once the DNS has been changed, the portal can be reached again at the usual address, or through a quick search on Google using the keyword “torrentz2”.
Obviously, it is always possible to reach the torrent portals and bypass any territorial block using a good VPN service.
