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.

HELP! I've used uTorrent for years! After I downloaded and installed uTorrent for macOS Catalina, 10.15.1, I had to startup in Safe mode just to install it since the installer kept opening with a blank dialog box! So, after installation, I can't find the app anywhere. The installer is for Catalina. PLEASE ADVISE!

I received an ad in the uTorrent window that said, "The new macOS Catalina is coming soon. Your uTorrent client will auto-update in September." Well, it's now mid-November and so far, nada. Are they still planning to update uTorrent (and if so, when?), or should I be looking at a replacement app before I take the Catalina plunge? That would be too bad, because I really like uTorrent!

I've been a loyal consumer of utorrent for years. But it's just been said with the new Mac Catalina update, it will remvoe all 32-bit applications meaning no more utorrent. So i will be looking for another application. Apparently qbitrorrent is 64 bit?

Are ever going to get a 64 bit version?! I have tried Transmission, qBittorrent, and Deluge. Neither do for me as does uTorrent. Nor have I had to deal with the nefarious aspects.

ClamXav keeps reporting that uTorrent downloads are infected with "PUA.OSX.InstallCore". That's happening with downloads from MacUpdate and from the main uTorrent site.

Is there an adware free version of uTorrent available ?

TODAY ADWARE INFESTED SYSTEM AND TOMORROW BITCOIN MINING ZOMBIE?

NEW VERSIONS OF UTORRENT INCLUDE ADWARE PAYLOAD. YOU CAN'T DELETE IT OR DISABLE. NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO THE ADWARE GETS RE-INSTALLED.

WHO KNOWS ONE DAY HARMLESS LOOKING ADWARE AND THE NEXT DAY UTORRENT AUTOUPDATE COULD INSTALL A BITCOIN MINING APP AND HAVE MY COMPUTER BECOME A ZOMBIE EFFECTIVELY USED FOR MINING BITCOINS WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE.

THIS USED TO BE RESPECTED AND REPUTABLE COMPANY. PLEASE BAN THIS VENDOR FROM MACUPDATE !!!!

Still installs spyware. What's interesting is that when you search MU for "torrent", uTorrent is listed as a 5-star app. MU seems to be complicit in their scam, because the actual ratings are much lower. This app should be removed from MU's listings immediately.

No, you don't want this, unless you like courting trouble. There are far better, safer torrent clients. Check out the alternatives listed on this page. In every case, use your torrent client safely. Know what you're doing.

Worthless crap. If you run Little Snitch while it tries to start it asks for an endless amount of connections. Also tries to install Yahoo adware, this is how much further Yahoo has fallen. BitTorrent Client is the same thing now. Transmission FTW but for how long yet?

This was a nice, free app. I would have paid a few bucks for it if asked. But no. Instead I got a vicious surprise when the app no longer seemed to work after I upgraded to El Capitan. I reinstalled it and discovered that it is now an adware-malware-trackware vector. Plonk! I'll now find another.

WHY is MacUpdate, a formerly trustworthy download source, allowing their loyal users to download a system-destroying weaponized application like this one? Can all the damage to MacUpdate's brand and reputation possibly be worth whatever money they took for posting this dangerous download? Yes, I too just got hammered by the Spigot adware, which takes over the OS X ApplicationManager process and spews out thousands of calls to mybrowserbar.com, which eventually took down El Capitan and forced a restart. Have your anti-malware apps ready! It installs extensions on Safari, changes your search engine and start page. to Yahoo—and God only knows whatever other damage this weaponized app did to my system.. I'm still running anti-malware and cleaning utilities over an hour after this attack ruined my Friday night.

I used to use this a while ago, been using Deluge, now just installed it on Mac as apparently it's the best one, but as many others have said, it screws with Safari settings. I'm going back to Deluge. Don't install this.

Just like jdoe506 mentions, it installs extensions on Safari, changes your search engine, and changes your start page. Download Transmission, do not download this crap. https://www.evernote.com/l/ABC47laf00FLyq6FlyrsYS5ulfLpGsiI07MB/image.png

This app has always been a POS but what was constantly being given fawning accolades by fanboys or developers of it with shill reviews who attacked anyone posting anything negative about it. Finally the tables have turned and it is exposed as the absolute trash it is. It now embeds a mybrowserbar.com installer within the package and who knows what else. AVOID this vomitous pile of donkey droppings.

uTorrent does function, albeit unintuitivly.I had to create a special folder for it to move completed .torrent files to which I've never had to do before for any other bt client. Download speeds are unimpressive, and then there is the ads. No thank you. I prefer Transmission and qBittorrent. PS: I believe that BitTorrent.app is uTorrent with a different icon. I know it is from the same developer so I wouldn't trust it either.

Better at injecting adware than actually doing what it's supposed to. Even though uTorrent claims to have rid it's software of adware, I recently downloaded v 1.8.7 and got nothing but redirects using Safari and Chrome.

Two curious points: Looking at the About uTorrent popup, I see v. 1.9.1. Second, downloading the current public version 1.8.7, a .dmg volume and viewing the package contents of the installer, there is an InstallerPreferences.plist file in the resources folder. If you like you can, edit out the four strings that call for downloads from mybrowser.com. You will need to remove the installer from the .dmg to do so, but that is trivial. It looks to me like once you have the app, it can update itself and then does not offer any monkey business. There is an app called AdwareMedic (yes, I know, some of these utilities are not legit, but this one is) which will easily remove adware such as Spigot and others. I hate the idea of having to closely watch the installation screens as in Windows or with CNet downloads to avoid this crap. However I am familiar with this app and like it. 5 stars trending to 2 would be my rating based on the creeping crapware monetization tactic. Why not just charge a few bucks per copy and be done with this nonsense?

Since the "Money" versions started showing up, the bloody app, WHEN it WORKS (which is seldom), has crashed and burned. Quit the app smoothly, and it is like to CRASH every time you try to launch it thereafter. Total uninstall, reinstall, reconfigure, try to recover any paused or stopped torrent file (because everything needs to start over. You've got to be kidding me! The app has rapidly plunged from the "go to" torrent down loader app to a real piece of SH*T. Will not use it again until the consistency, stability, and full-around with the code is repaired. Pay MONEY for this piece of crap -- not on your life!

This will install the Mac Spigot virus into your system. Used to be my only go-to app for bit-torrent, but not anymore. qBit Torrent does the same job without any malware.

This is insane. I don't care about the placement of ads, but this is the second time in a short while, where an allegedly "stable" update to an admittedly very simple application doesn't work. The main window won't even open. You guys should seriously consider firing some of your developers/coders. Buncha hacks.

I don't mind the ads if the app itself works. But 1.8.7 is broken. (I've updated from 1.8.6.) Maybe it's just me, but my installation doesn't show any of its labels on the sidebar. (Only that giant ad sits there alone.) As it's defaulting to the 'downloading' label, and I have no way to change it, I can't see all my 'completed' torrents now! (I know they're there, because when torrents for the existing ones are added it says so.)

uTorrent used to be the best torrent software but now they only care about money so they force ads on you and they try to make you, the user, install a searchbar when you install uTorrent. Shame on you! I will never use your software again.

I've lost all respect for this app. The installer now tries to trick you into installing crapware with what appears to be a step of the installation process (it's actually asking you to accept an "offer", hoping that most people will just try to click past it). Either way, on first launch it immediately hijacks torrent files and magnet links from any other BT app, without asking. To top it all off, the UI looks like a scummy webpage, complete with ads. Steer clear of this.
