That's not a duplicate of How do I remove the ADs in uTorrent? because this question is about MacOS version, which have different settings and ads hosts. Reciple from that question is useless for MacOS version.

  • No. Because MacOS uTorrent differs from Windows version.

  • Isn't there any preferences option in uTorrent? Windows has Ctrl+P shortcut to open preferences.

We need to prevent access to ads hosts and clear cache

0. Close uTorrent

To close it completely open uTorrent and press ⌘+q

1. Put this into your hosts file cdn.bitmedianetwork.com static.ap.bittorrent.com www.bt.co bt.co

Use sudo nano /etc/hosts for it. (How to do it?)

2. Clear uTorrent cache

Open Terminal and execute

rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.bittorrent.uTorrent
