Audio Recording And Editing Software ‘Audacity’ Is Not Spyware, Reports Said
Early July, numerous reports from tech websites said that the popular audio recording and editing software Audacity is now considered spyware as it claims to collect sensitive data from the users that installed it in their PCs. Since this information was released, many users have already said that they are uninstalling their software and use other alternative software instead.
However, it is said that this case has already been addressed two months ago.
According to the PR of Audacity, they stated that "telemetry is strictly optional and disabled by default."
Audacity is an open-source digital audio recording and editing software for Windows, Linux, macOS, and Unix-like OS. It first started in 1999 but its official release was on May 28, 2000.
The software's trademark is acquired by Muse Group in April 2021. The company also owns the following software: Ultimate Guitar and MuseCore.
