    utorrent recently went through an update that pumped it full of ads, so it's kind of crappy now. Bu I think you can get the old version that still works well.

    I read somewhere that transmission kills privacy settings or something of the sort
    Tried utorrent but it kept saying failed to download torrent
    I currently use bittorrent but it crashes mostly now

    Any ideas??

    Transmission is the best one for Mac. They will all show your IP if you don't use a VPN. You'll want to use them in conjunction with a VPN.

    Check if there is a setting on your VPN for MTU and lower it to 1300.

    Try contacting support for your VPN service.
