Is Unchecky still supported?

The last update was 3 years ago. Is Unchecky still supported? Especially with security software, I think it is important to only use software that is supported by the vendor.

It appears that the company that bought Unchecky has ghosted the project. I think it was Reason Security or something.

Thanks, I think you are right. Makes me wonder exactly how the program operates. If it just looks for any pre-check checkboxes and unchecks them, it probably matters little that it hasn't been updated. But if it looks for very specific software dialog boxes (so it doesn't uncheck boxes that are not doing any harm - such as saying "install to the following directory" or something) then Unchecky becomes useless pretty quickly.

I guess maybe we will never know. I think I will stop recommending Unchecky - and other software from Reason Security (since I don't think I can trust the company any more)
