How to Spot a Fake Torrent?
Well if you’re a long-term computer user, you’ll spot a fake torrent even if it is your first time downloading one. But if you’re a beginner always check the details of the files before downloading torrent.
You just need to check if there aren’t any extra files that look like system executable files or file names that seem to look like ordinary files but their extensions are like RAR, EXE or something other then what you’re content extension may be.
For Example when downloading a movie you can check if the file extension is MP4 or MKV (usually these are the formats movie files are uploaded with), anything other then that is probably a virus or a fake torrent.
