First of all, internet law is confusing. It constantly changes and we are not lawyers. By the time you get done reading you’ll see how it can even be different depending on where you are. Having said that, if you’re like most people, these are 10 things you’re doing online that are probably Illegal.

1. Torrenting

Torrenting itself isn’t illegal, most of the things torrented on the web make it that way like Movies, TV Series, Games, Software, Music.

2. Unofficial TV Streaming Services

Basically any show you’re watching online for free whose rights are owned by some TV channel or an official streaming site.

3. Accessing the deep web

It’s the criminal underbelly of the internet and just accessing the wrong site can get you in loads of trouble. Don’t go there believe me lots of shit there in deep web.

4. Faking your IP

This one shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. You can do all kinds of dodgy things when you’re anonymous. People fake their IP address to access things they’re not supposed to access and which are not available in their country.

5. Connecting to unsecured, non-public Wi-Fi

No, it’s not because it’s unsafe, it’s because you’re stealing internet. So, now stop using your neighbor’s WiFi connection to download torrents (Too much illegal) :p

6. Unlocking your phone

Although jailbreaking your iPhone and Rooting your Android smartphone is still technically legal, but personally unlocking your phone to use across carriers isn’t.

7. Ad blockers

In few countries blocking ads are illegal, although it’s completely unenforceable. But com’on ads are maybe the only source of revenue they have like ours  disable it for site like us at least 😀 .

8. Clicking “save image as” (Downloading Images)
