qBittorrent is safe to use - at least the files we host are clean - you can check the MD5/SHA1 signatures. When in doubt, double-check using a third-party safety service such as VirusTotal. We do not list software using third-party installers that can be identified as adware/malware by security vendors.How is bittorrent downloading works?
Unlike other download methods, BitTorrent maximizes transfer speed by gathering pieces of the file you want and downloading these pieces simultaneously from people who already have them. This process makes popular and very large files, such as videos and television programs, download much faster than is possible with other protocols.
