We’re in the process of rolling out a new feature of for our BitTorrent and uTorrent clients: Altruistic Mode. This is a feature for users who want to make sure that they upload more than they download and are okay with the tradeoff that their download might never complete.
Because this feature has some subtle and confusing behaviors, in the interests of not confusing users we require it to be unlocked before it can be used. The user can enable this mode in the “Preferences”. The checkbox “Enable Altruistic Mode” will be in the “BitTorrent” section (uTorrent 3.4.9 and above, and BitTorrent 7.9.9 and above).
