Can't Access KickassTorrents - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as,

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Actually there is a way to open the kickass torrent website using Google Chrome. Just follow this instructions:
1. Open Google Chrome Settings
2. Open Advance Settings
3. Under PRIVACY uncheck this "Protect yourself and your device from harmful sites"
Open the kickass torrent website.
Dont forget to check it back after using the website if you dont want harmful attacks.
Hope this was helpful. Enjoy.

If you are using FireFox ( later builds like 41 ) and try to load the KAT site it will block it. It has defined the site an "attack site" which shuts down your ability to load it. The solution is very simple. Go to tools>options>security and click the "exceptions" button. Put the KAT url in the "adress of website" line and apply it. Note, if you are acessing KAT through a torent agregator you will need to add the entire URL agrgator plus KAT. IE:

YOu can also tell FF to ignore all attack sites but that would not be the prefered option.

I'm pretty sure no mirror site or proxy will work properly. Yes, you can still browse KAT and download though. They will most likely be limited to that. So no logging in... And then there is the big problem of it being a cached version.
If you look at the latest forum threads here:
You'll notice that I posted in the 'Suggest Achievements! Official Thread V2' thread about '4 minutes ago' (has been at 4 minutes for about 20 or so) when in actuality, I posted that over 2 hours ago. Also, the new achievement isn't even there... :P

I see what is going on... You can view KAT as long as you are not using "https!" You must only connect using "http." ... However, you still will not be able to sign-in unless you are 'always signed-in' using http! I can download from KAT by using Chrome in "http" mode, not "https." You can then navigate the site and download, but you will not get any credit since you will not be signed in. --- Pikachu
