Do you have one of those cool Razer mice or keyboards that light up different colors? Some of our SpyShelter team here in Austin, Texas do, and we love Razer USA! As long as the Razer Synapse Service Process is signed, then it's safe to have it on your PC. You can confirm this with the Windows Task Manager, or use our popular SpyShelter Antispyware App.

Razer Synapse Service Process.exe is a background process associated with Razer Synapse, a software that allows users to customize and control their Razer peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and headsets. The process is responsible for managing and maintaining the communication between the Razer Synapse software and the connected Razer devices. It enables users to save their custom settings and profiles on the Razer cloud, synchronize their settings across multiple devices, and receive firmware updates for their Razer peripherals.
