Torrent Client:

The BitTorrent torrent client is safe to use. There is no way to run it through a malware scanner; however, you can run a malware scan on your computer after downloading it. I did that with a full scan with Microsoft Defender on Windows 11 and the torrent client is not detected as malware. I scanned the computer again with Malwarebytes and Spybot – Search & Destroy and neither of them considered the BitTorrent torrent client to be malware.

The BitTorrent torrent client displays one banner advertisement. I have tested these ads as much as possible by clicking on them and then checking if my computer’s hard drive or browser had malware afterward. There was no malware detected in the browser or hard drive.

In conclusion, BitTorrent (the website and the torrent client) is safe to use. We didn’t detect any malware during our scans. And the online malware scanner says is a low security risk with no malware and it hasn’t been blacklisted by any security vendors. OVERALL GRADE: Safe.
