Who is Phase Five Systems? There is no address and no information about this company even on their website. I would not trust such a company - especially not with any kind of remote control software that gets routed through the company's system.

This might be of use to you: http://jumpdesktop.com/privacy

And, apparently Apple thought the developer is legit, they listed the app on the Mac App Store.

Any "privacy statements" are worthless in such a case of an anonymous offerer of remote control software. I also do not really care what Apple thinks - I prefer to think myself.

Please note that the website of the developer has been registered through a third party company "WhoisGuard" to hide where they are and who they are. Remote control software is extremely security sensitive. Whoever offers such a software and does everything to hide their identity does not deserve to be trusted.

I agree 100%. Why are they hiding their identity?

Agree to you. A web site without an impressum with complete info of the company is a nogo, in Germany even forbitten!

Well, the link posted by MacUpdate-Lon makes this service even more suspicious. (thanks anyways)

They collect data and use third party soft/hardware and hosting partners.
Who are those partners and where are those servers located worldwide?

However, Neartheredrocks, thanks for pointing this out!

Thank you for pointing this out. I installed this program, but then looked at this page. I checked the website and all links I could find, and I do have a problem with the company not saying who they are. So, I've now regretfully uninstalled this software. It's too bad, because otherwise it does look like a good piece of software.
