The creator of Popcorn Time, software that lets people watch movies illegally online, has chosen to reveal his identity and speak out about his experiences developing the site.

TorrentFreak reports that 29-year-old designer Federico Abad
from Argentina revealed his identity in an interview with the Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv
.

Abad said he was inspired to create Popcorn Time because internet speeds in Argentina were so bad and because major movies often reached Argentine cinemas months after their release in the US.

Abad said he recruited other people around the world using Twitter and Facebook. They worked overnight to create popcorn time apk Time and eventually "had concentration problems at work because of the project." Abad said he worked so hard on the project that his girlfriend left him.

Popcorn Time let users illegally stream movies online free. But Abad shut it down in 2014
after authorities put pressure on the site. Since then, other similar sites have launched
that use the same software. There is even a Popcorn Time app
.

Abad said he decided to shut down the project when he noticed that a lawyer working for Warner Bros. had viewed LinkedIn profiles belonging to developers working on Popcorn Time.

"We do not know how, but he had managed to track us down," he said. "We were quite put out. We thought it was a scare tactic. And we were frightened. None of us were anonymous anymore. They knew where we worked and where we lived."
