Deceiving domain - torrentmac.net

Type: Adware

Torrentmac.net is the Mac Torrents site that should supposedly provide downloads of files, software, games, security, and cleaning utilities for various macOS devices. However, this is a deceptive site that redirects to other shady pages when you try to access anything on the page and most of those sites trigger automatic downloads of PUPs or shady tools that developers promote. 

There is no reason to trust torrentmac.net as a service because torrent pages and pirating is illegal, in general. There are many other issues that can get triggered when you end up on the shady sets, fall for the offer or deal delivered on the screen. Consumers get scammed using these misleading sites, so it is possible to suffer monetary or data losses when paying not enough attention to details.

Any PUP or more serious infection can lead to problems with speed and performance, you need to avoid these domains as much as possible.
