YTS.mx is the unofficial successor of the defunct YTS or YIFY group, which shut down in 2015.
The site, which regularly changes domain names, is specialized in releasing movies. YTS and YIFY movies tend to be relatively popular, as there's a large group of people watching these 'tags' on other sites as well.
The new YTS has amassed a massive userbase, with millions of daily visitors. The site typically adds several new movie titles on an average day.
As with many other popular torrent sites, YTS is blocked by ISPs in a wide variety of countries.
YTS has also been subject to several lawsuits. This resulted in three settlements, where the operator agreed to pay piracy damages in 2020. Following these settlements, several YTS users were sued. This suggests that the site's database may have been 'breached' or shared.
