How to manually uninstall µTorrent

Many users when trying to remove µTorrent on Mac, go to the Applications folder in Finder and simply delete the µTorrent app to Trash. Nice, but we have bad news for you. In such a way, only the executable file was deleted, while all µTorrent’s service files remain on Mac’s hard drive.

Here is how to completely delete µTorrent on your Mac:

  1. Switch to Finder and go to the Applications folder.
  2. Drag and drop the µTorrent application to Trash.
  3. Go to ~/Library folder, use CMD+Shift+G shortcut.
  4. Enter the ~/Library path and click Go.
  5. Go to Folder Finder window

  6. Navigate and remove µTorrent support and temporary files, so remove files and folders:
    • ~/Library/Application Support/uTorrent Web
    • Finder window showing µTorrent Application Support folder

    • ~/Library/Caches/com.bitTorrent.utweb
    • Finder window showing µTorrent Caches folder

    • ~/Library/Preferences/com.bitTorrent.utweb.plist
    • Finder window showing µTorrent Preferences file

    • ~/private/var/folders/I8/p97z_hq9581b6b36ps1b824h0000gq/C/com.bittorrent.utweb
    • Finder window showing µTorrent leftovers

  7. Empty the Trash bin; then restart your Mac to complete removing the app.

Please note that the manual way of finding the service files of µTorrent is time-consuming and some files may be spread out in different locations on your disk.

This means that it’s possible not to find some files or even to remove other files by mistake.

That’s why we recommend that you use a special µTorrent removal tool – App Cleaner & Uninstaller. Keep on reading to learn how to get rid of µTorrent with just a few clicks.
