Macro Recorder is no spyware!
Our software includes a "keyboard hook" component to detect keystrokes. This is required by Macro Recorder to respond to your keystrokes.
Unfortunately, such a component is also misused by malware. The difference is that the malware collects its text entries and transmits them over the Internet.
This is of course not the case with our software. Otherwise, we would not have been a company registered in Germany for 20 years with data protection laws that are among the strictest in the world. There is no spy function built into our software.
Computer protection programs may issue a false alarm when they detect such keyboard hook. Please report such false alarms to the protection software manufacturer. They will review our software and may add it to a whitelist list to prevent future false alarms.
Other security programs may block keyboard hooks ("key logger") components by default which renders our software useless. Please check the settings of your security software if you can whitelist our software in any such "keylogger" protection feautre.
Please contact us if you have any further questions about security and privacy. It is very important to us that you use our software with confidence.
