Is uTorrent safe for Mac
uTorrent is used by millions of users around the world and the application is safe to download and use. Torrents generally have a bad reputation because of the potential that they have for carrying malware and viruses, but this is not a reflection of uTorrent itself. Users should only download trustworthy torrents from legitimate sources to protect themselves from any unwanted malware and viruses.
How to speed up uTorrent
The uTorrent client, and other torrent clients, operate on a peer-to-peer network. To improve your uTorrent client’s performance, you need to limit the upload rate of your uTorrent client so that seeding a completed torrent does not use all of your bandwidth. You should enable multiple torrents depending on your preference, and make sure that the download rate is set to unlimited.
How to remove ads from uTorrent
There are 2 ways of disabling uTorrent ads. The first way is to set some flags to false in Advanced Settings within the uTorrent application. To disable the sidebar ad, click on options and deselect the “Show information about Plus” option. To disable the ‘featured’ ad banner, click on the Preferences icon, click on Advanced, and then change the value of sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled to false.

There are 3 ways of preventing a torrent from seeding
  1. Once a torrent has finished downloading then remove the torrent from the uTorrent queue. Be sure to keep the data of the torrent and only remove the torrent itself.

After using uTorrent for years the developers decided not to support modern Mac operating systems. I tried the online version but it sucked, I'm now using Transmission and have never looked back.
