allows you to download content from the Internet through the P2P BitTorrent network. A main advantage of uTorrent is its tiny consumption of resources: once downloaded and running, you can download songs, movies or series with minimal impact on your PC's performance. You just need to add the torrent file and the download will start immediately.
uTorrent is a BitTorrent
client designed for fast downloads. This software is entirely customisable and lets you configure various settings to your liking, including bandwidth use, RSS feeds, and DHT support. Users also have the ability to schedule uploads, downloads, pause and resume downloads and automatic shutdowns. uTorrent is also able to run multiple downloads simultaneously and allows you to play streaming media while you are downloading, rate and comment on torrent files, drag and drop files for sharing, and block UDP trackers. This program supports the use of external players such as VLC
or Windows Media Player
to view downloaded movies.
Is it Safe?
UTorrent is one of the most trusted torrent downloaders. The process of Torrenting in itself is safe and legal. It is an excellent way of transferring data efficiently between remote users. However, whilst Torrenting itself is not illegal, the act of downloading and sharing pirated content is. It is recommended that you consider using a VPN and avoid downloading pirated content.
µTorrent is also available on Mac
