Version: 10.9
I've enjoyed using Intego for many years. It doesn't (does not) slow down your computer. There are very regular updates. HOWEVER! The company does subject users to analytics by way of Mixpanel. If you've got a 'reverse firewall', such as that by Intego itself (!) or Little Snitch, you'll find that every Intego process feeds back to Mixpanel. "Mixpanel is an event analytics service company that tracks user interactions with web and mobile applications. Data collected is used to build custom reports and measure user engagement and retention." - Wikipedia. - -> If you don't like this, you can "Deny" outgoing connections to Mixpanel in your reverse firewall.
