BitLord is a free, ad-supported and proprietary BitTorrent client for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Android.[1] Promoted as "The easiest torrent downloader", the program uses the libtorrent-rasterbar C++ library. BitLord is as of version 2.4 built using Python and the Qt cross-platform framework. It is capable of streaming video, using a built in version of VLC.[2]

BitLord was first released in December 2004, as BitLord 0.56, based on and under license from BitComet. From version 1.2 until 2.3.2, BitLord was based on Deluge, but has added several features of its own since then.

Upon download, BitLord will download many other programs and files, such as MyPc Backup and RegClean Pro. It might also change your default search engine to [1]http://search.conduit.com/.[3] They are both often cited as adware and browser hijackers.[4][5]
