Adobe Genuine Service


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.
