Kickass Torrents torrent download site

The original Kickass Torrents has been shut down on July 20th 2016.
The community backed Kickass Torrents has been launched in December 2016.

A large group of original Kickass Torrents staffers has launched a reincarnation of the infamous torrent site, hoping to restore it to its former glory. The new site uses a fresh and secure database, but the look and feel of the platform remains the same.



Kickass Torrents (KAT) is a well-know torrent site indexing thousands of torrents verified and commented by a large file-sharing community. KAT continues to innovate and release new features. Beside The Pirate Bay, Kickass Torrents has grown to one of the most popular torrent sites.

What makes a difference to The Pirate Bay is the fact that Kickass Torrents deals with DMCA takedown requests while The Pirate Bay yet refuses to delete any torrent. Anyhow there’s a vast content collection provided by KATs community that potentially tops the catalog of The Pirate Bay.

Third-party malware and adult adverts annoy many visitors but decreased in recent times. Registered users will have the most ads removed.

Kickass Torrents downloads are provided as .torrent file downloads and magnet links. Due to its popularity and recurring DDoS attacks, suffers downtimes every now and then.

    I wouldn’t trust any of these Kickass clones, so many pop-ups and inconsistencies. I’ve switched back to ThePirateBay for now, but seems to be the closest in my opinion.

    KickAss Torrent was the best torrent page in history of all torrent pages. There are so many torrent pages, but they are not even half good as KAT was that for sure!!! Page design etc. was really perfect a lot of torrents was verified, and I never had any problems with KAT.

    It is sad that KAT go down, but that pointless and unsafe The Pirate Bay is still online! I used TPB one time and even that time was fake torrent! I wasn’t use TPB for years now, and never will. Torrents are not even checked etc. is not safe at all…
