Who was Redac built for?

Redac was built for anyone who wants to redact images quickly before sharing them to other people or on the internet. 

We should only share the part of the image that you want to share, and keep the sensitive information out.

Can the redacted text be restored?

No. The redacted text will be blocked, so it cannot be restored.

What is the minimum macOS version Redac can support?

macOS 11.0 and above

Is my data safe?

This little app does all the processing on your computer. Your original images stay on your computer, and will always do.

How does the app manage the screen capture data, including collection, use, disclosure, sharing, and retention of screen recording data?

One of the image import options is via screenshots.

The user can choose which window to screenshot. However, the data collected from screen capture stays on the user's computer. It does not send the data elsewhere.

Once the app quits, the screen-captured image will be erased from the memory, unless the user chooses to save the processed image to the hard drive or paste it to an editor.
