Status of SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app 64-bit support
(Last updated in July 2018)
Does the current SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app version 8.2.0 run on macOS 10.13 High Sierra?
Answer: Yes, our latest Mac Desktop runs fine on all current macOS versions from (and including) 10.8 Mountain Lion up to macOS Sierra and High Sierra.
Is SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app a 32-bit or 64-bit app? When do you plan to make it 64-bit compliant?
Answer: The Mac app is 64-bit now, as of May 23rd 2018. IF you get a warning your Mac Desktop app is a 32-bit app this means you are not running our latest Mac Desktop app version. Please read on below on how to update/upgrade to latest version.
I heard macOS High Sierra will soon block any 32-bit apps, such as SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app. Is this a problem?
Answer: No, please note the known January 2018 & June 2018 cutoff dates for 32-bit Mac apps only apply to new & existing apps in Mac App Store (former date for new apps, latter date for ALL Mac Store apps). These cutoff dates do not affect any non-Mac App Store apps such as our SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app. Thus our Mac Desktop app is not affected by these, and will keep working in/after January 2018 and after June 2018 too.
Also, as per above our Mac Desktop app is a 64-bit app now so it will also work on the newer macOS 10.14 Mojave coming later in the fall of 2018.
As of April-June 2018, I am getting a message that SplashID Safe Mac Desktop app I use is not optimized for my Mac. Is this a problem I should be worried about?
Answer: Please note this is just a warning/information message you are getting. However as our 64-bit Mac Desktop app has been released already in May 2018, you should backup all current Mac Desktop data by exporting it to vID file/folder then update to latest 8.2.0 Mac Desktop app which is here:
(when the installer asks you to choose to replace or keep the old Mac Desktop app, you must choose to replace it)
NOTE: If running a 7.x version of our Mac Desktop app that is older than 7.2.2 such as 7.2.0, 7.0.9/etc you must first backup your current Mac Desktop app data, then update to 7.2.2 Mac Desktop app from here:
again replacing the older Mac Desktop app when asked, and only then install latest 8.2.0 Mac Desktop app (link above).
