What is Transmission?

Transmission is an open-source, volunteer-based project. Unlike some BitTorrent clients, Transmission doesn’t play games with its users to make money:
  • Transmission doesn’t bundle toolbars, pop-up ads, flash ads, twitter tools, or anything else.
  • It doesn’t hold some features back for a payware version.
  • Its source code is available for anyone to review.
  • We don’t track our users, and our website and forums have no third-party ads or analytics.
