How to disable ads in uTorrent

uTorrent is a great torrent app, but in the last few months it began to show ads. They also removed the option for hiding them. But, there is a way to remove them: here’s how.

To turn off ads and offers, open Options > Preferences > Advanced. Search and disable the following flags:

  • offers.left_rail_offer_enabled
  • left_rail_offer
  • gui.show_plus_upsell
  • offers.sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled
  • sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled
  • bt.enable_pulse
  • gui.show_notorrents_node
  • offers.content_offer_autoexec

These may be similarly named in your torrent application. Be careful when editing things if you are not entirely sure what they do.
