    does the transmission torrent app let anyone download my files on my mac?

    without my permission?

    Only the files that are being uploaded as shown in the program...not just anything on your computer.

    I wondered about that at first since some peer-to-peer protocols do allow access to areas on your computer, fortunately torrents don't work that way.

    It's not limewire. You only upload the things that you want or things that you've downloaded and are still 'seeding' (sharing your copy for others to also get a copy).
