you clever devils, you.

Started some recent upgrade and lo and behold, I look, and there's McAfee and something called True Key installing without my permission. Or, rather, I likely unwittingly gave my permission. Like malware.

I dutifully uninstalled, deleted any leftover folders I could find and, when I turned on my computer this morning, there was True Key, sitting there next to my accounts on the Windows sign in page! Yaay!

Stuff like this is why, ever since you bought Macromedia, I always tell people Adobe is one of my most admired companies. Macromedia would never have been so clever.

Sincer--- er, Behance,

These are "optional offers" when you update the Flash player - but checked by default. Yeah, I hate that too.

I'm always careful to uncheck these before I proceed.

I'm loving the '21' that makes it even more confusing.

But we shouldn't _have_ to be careful to uncheck.  They should be defaulted OFF, not on.  As the OP stated, "like malware".

Hi craignelsen,

"True Key" is made by Intel. It's designed to provide other ways for you to sign into your account(s):

True Key™ by Intel Security: Now you are the password

This might come in handy, if you're a lazy person like me or if you tend to forget your password(s)

every now and then.

» How do I uninstall the True Key app from my Windows device or Internet Explorer/Chrome/Firefox brows...

Kind Regards,

Maurice


Best Regards, Maurice
