How to use tools for anonymous torrent downloads real quick and easy [in 2019]

How to use tools for torrent download

  1. A VPN app to get access to Torrent sites. In my country, many torrent sites are blocked. The Torrent technology (P2P file sharing) is not only for illegal downloads but many legal software and videos are available for download via torrents as well. I prefer Nord VPN for anonymity. It is available for almost all platforms with some good servers. P2P is allowed. BTW, we will use a torrent leecher web service.
  2. A download manager, I prefer Internet Download Manager for Windows and Advanced Download Manager (buy Pro for ad free experience) for Android.
  3. An account in Torrent Leecher site like Zbigz , the premium service is good but has some cost. If the file size is not too big then seedr.cc also provides good speed and 2GB storage to start with for free.

Anonymous torrent download
The 1-2-3 of the process:
  1. Connect to VPN, for anonymous connection and access to Torrent site. The detailed connection process will vary from one software to another.
  2. Copy the magnet link of the torrent file from the site. Add the link to seedr or zbigz. There are a number of torrent leecher services available with different free and paid plans. I have listed only those which I personally have used and found to be working well. We can also paste to torrent file lik as well instead of magnet links. 3.The leecher service will start caching the file requested in its own servers. It is something like the leecher service download the torrent file in a similar manner as it is done in our own PC via Torrent Clients. We leave the leecher site till the caching is complete. Sometimes it takes longer time for the process to complete. Once the caching process is complete, the file can be downloaded as usual. Use the download manager of your choice to download it at maximum speed.

Dark web tools are not always used for illegal purposes.

Hi all, we all muat have aware of some tools used in dark web. One of the tools that is most widely used for illegal downloads of almost any kind, movies, music, books, software, porn (most popular, ?), etc. is torrent. We all have used utorrent for sure. Thepiratebay, kickass torrents, tirrentz.eu all have been (in)famous for illegal torrent files.

BUT, torrent technology is a beautiful piece of technology that allows efficient downloads via peer to peer file sharing. This technology can be used for legal downloads, which can allow downloading of large files with more efficient manner. Torrent is almost similar to the Blockchain technology, decentralized system of sharing a file.

I today would like to share a website which allows legal downloads of acaademic materials.

http://academictorrents.com

It is a distributed system for sharing enormous datasets – for researchers, by researchers.

The result is a scalable, secure, and fault-tolerant repository for data, with blazing fast download speeds.

As an avid android user I recommend Flud, a very good and efficient torrent client for Android OS.

Thanks DropBox, I found some old Magestic Sunset images!

I am an ardent fan of smartphone photography. I use Dropbox to archive some of my old photos using the Camera Upload feature to save space on my smartphone. Luckily, I have around 26GB of Dropbox space most of which I use to store photos captured using the smartphone. Dropbox provides 2GB of free space as the starter plan and they have a referral system to increase the amount of free space upto 16GB. The paid plans are also pretty good deal even though I have not yet felt the need to upgrade to a paid plan.

Now let me show you some photos which I liked a lot while browsing through my photo archive at Dropbox.

You can try DropBox (It contains a referral link which will provide me with an extra 500MB space and also you can earn an extra 500MB if signed up through this link and the app is installed) if not already a member.

I took the above picture at my village, a lush green paddy field. The shot was taken using a Samsung Galaxy Note (aka N7000) phone sometime in 2012. The picture was color enhanced with Adobe Lightroom Mobile on my current OnePlus 3 smartphone.

I, along with my family, went for some treatment at the Apollo Hospitals in Chennai, India during Sep-Oct, 2012 where I underwent a small knee surgery (an arthroscopic surgery) for some knee joint pain and during our stay we had a trip to Mahabalipuram (also known as Mamallapuram, a UNESCO World Heritage Site) which has many stone sculptures as well as beautiful sunsets. The following pictures are examples of the beauty of the place during sunset (my mobile photography is not that good to justify the real beauty of that place)
