Note: This open source software has been marked as clean by Jotti (.exe, .zip, .dmg, .AppImage, .snap, legacy .dmg) and VirusTotal (.exe, .zip, .AppImage, .Snap .dmg, legacy .dmg). Syncplay might be flagged as suspicious by some anti-malware systems simply because it is niche software downloaded from the Internet but as we are open source anyone can audit our code if they wish to do so.
