Windows Piracy

Linux Piracy

MacOS Piracy




Piracy sites have ads, so it's highly recommended to install UBlock Origin. Also note that it's not recommended to use more than one adblocker at a time.



Antivirus software is usually bloatware. Stick to trusted sources for games and software and you will be fine with nothing but Windows Defender and an occasional Malwarebytes scan. Remember to always scan software before installing with tools like VirusTotal / VToncolab or use it in Sandboxie.



Note that a VPN is not needed outside of torrenting. You can avoid the need for one altogether by sticking to direct download and streaming sites.




When using DDL it's generally recommended to use a download manager such as Internet Download Manager(IDM) or JDownloader, they improve the ease of downloading along with the speeds. You'll find them here



Torrenting can get you in trouble with your ISP, so make sure to use a VPN. Most VPNs offer a killswitch to prevent data leaks, but it's much more effective to bind your VPN to your client, preventing it from connecting at all unless your VPN is on.
