Adobe Genuine Service

Adobe:

The Adobe Genuine Service is a free service that periodically verifies whether Adobe apps on your machine are genuine and notifies you if they are not.

[…]

The Adobe Genuine Service uninstaller removes Adobe Genuine Service and cached data.

Via Cabel Sasser:

TIL: Adobe runs a process on your system full-time to check if you’re running any counterfeit Adobe apps. But please don’t be concerned: it’s free! lol

At any given moment, there are usually 7 background Adobe processes (with 60–70 threads) running on my Mac, even with no apps launched. One of them crashes and shows an alert each time I log in. I would love to be able to turn them off.

I finally cut myself loose from Creative Cloud/Photoshop and went to Affinity Photo. I only wish I had done it sooner.
