Some users may find that they have already downloaded uTorrent or BitTorrent before, but they still can’t open the magnet link. When they open the links on some websites, nothing happens. If you face the same problem, maybe you can find the reasons from the following 5 points.

  • Firewall or Antivirus Software: The torrent clients may disallow your firewall or antivirus software to access the magnet links. So, maybe you can shut down the firewall or antivirus software for a while to see if the magnet links open.
  • Invalid or Expired Magnet Link: If you can’t open the magnet links, they may be invalid or expired. In this case, you may have to find an alternative one and check whether the new magnet link can be accessed or not.
  • Slow Internet Connection: Sometimes, a magnet link can’t work because it keeps loading and the result can’t be showed up. This may be caused by an unstable internet connection. Therefore, you may have to accelerate the network first.
  • Unsupported browser: Some browsers may forbid you from accessing the magnet links because the browsers think they are not safe. You can turn to other browsers and open the magnet links.
  • Blocked by ISP: Your magnet links may be blocked by some Internet Service Providers (ISPs). You can try to connect to a VPN and open the links again.

From the above 5 reasons, you know why sometimes your magnet links can’t be opened. You can try each solution to solve your problem. The next part will show you how to save the magnet link to G Suite using MultCloud which is considered the most secure way.
