Privacy concern: Snagit continues to use microphone after video recorded ended

  • Updated 2 months ago
I use micro snitch utility to detect when app start use my camera or microphone. Lately, when I start recording a video with voiceover using snagit, it correctly starts to use my microphone. However, when I stop recording it continues to use the microphone even though I'm not recording anything anymore. So I have to restart the app so it doesn't spy on me (I don't think it does and I do believe it's just a bug, but still), which is annoying. Not even mentioning that constant use of microphone drains battery for no reason

Hi,

Thanks for reaching out to us. First off I want to say we're definitely not spying on you! This is likely a bug with the cleanup after you finish recording, I'll pass this information along to the development team.

I was able to reproduce this issue once out of 4 recordings I tried. Is this happening to you every time? What versions of Snagit and macOS are you running?
