Kickass Torrents heads to the dark web

Kickass Torrents has added a dark web address to its site to make it easier for users to bypass Internet service provider blockades.

TorrentFreak reported that the operators of the torrent index decided to hide the site on the Tor network after a number of ISPs started blocking access to it.

ISPs from the United Kingdom and Finland already block Kickass Torrents, and soon Australia may be added to the list.

Tor is short for The Onion Router, and is essentially Internet browser software which masks Internet traffic.

It lets you navigate to sites that typically end in .onion.
