WordExpander is no spyware

"Anti-Spyware" or "Security" software may detect, that WordExpander is trying to access keyboard functions and output a (false) alarm.

Of course, WordExpander needs to have keyboard access in order to provide the desired functionality (hotkey support, remote typing). A helper utility must be authorized to help.

Unfortunately, a few "Security" programs may claim any program as potentially dangerous which access the keyboard, regardless if it is a malicious keylogger or a harmless utility.

Please be assured that never send any personal data over the internet. We are a registered company and surely have no interest to ruin the reputation of our 13+ years history or to mess with one of the strictest privacy laws world wide. We also do not hide our place of business.

If your "Security" program reports that WordExpander contains a virus, we kindly ask you to send the maker of your "security" program a false alarm report. This will allow them to verify the situation and white-list WordExpander in their database.
