What is a BTKEY file?
A BTKEY file is a license key used to activate a paid copy of BitTorrent or uTorrent. It contains a randomly-generated string of letters and/or numbers that serves as a user's license. BTKEY files are typically named license.btkey.
BitTorrent and uTorrent are peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing programs used to send and receive torrents. While both applications are available for free, upgrading to the paid, licensed version of the applications removes ads and adds other premium features.
When a user purchases a paid version of BitTorrent or uTorrent, they are sent an installer and a license key. The license key is saved in a file named license.btkey. After installing the app, a user must drag their BTKEY file to the app to activate their license.
