Are you aware of the software named uTorrent? I guess if you’re a movie lover, you must have heard of that name. But in case you have not yet heard about uTorrent, in this article I’ll share everything you need to know about uTorrent. It is a peer-to-peer file-sharing system that allows people from anywhere on the globe to download files from anywhere.
The model on which uTorrent works is very profitable. The servers are not stressed much, and everyone who downloads the file using uTorrent does also help others download it. There are two types of people using Torrent, seeders, and leechers. If you are downloading a file using uTorrent, you are a leecher. While, if your download is complete and you upload the file, you are a seeder. The entire system works on the bases of seeders and leechers. If there are no seeders, you cannot download a file from uTorrent.
What is a Torrent?
It is a client software from the parent BitTorrent. The torrent file that you download over the internet is a tiny sized file. The file only contains metadata of the location (IP address) the data will be downloaded. It acts as a bridge between you and the file uploader – seeder. It ensures a smooth flow and transfer of files from one person to another.
But while you are using uTorrent / BitTorrent, you need to be very careful. There are many people and sites which use Torrent to inject malware and false data on your computer. You need to take care and click on the right click to get rid of them. It is not very difficult for you to do that, but check the link url before clicking on it. And you should be good to go.
