ToS icon

License Grant

We give you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Software, defined by your license type and its activation count. Paid licenses are governed by the terms of your chosen plan, afterward reverting to a complimentary license if not renewed for payment. The SpyShelter software also often has a free trial period with access to paid features until it reverts to the free version without paid features.


SpyShelter retains all proprietary rights to the software. Any rights not explicitly granted to you remain with SpyShelter. SpyShelter retains exclusive ownership of all worldwide copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, patent rights, moral rights, property rights and all other industrial rights in the Software and documentation, including any derivative works, modification, updates, or enhancements. All rights in and to the Software not expressly granted to User in this Agreement are reserved by Licensor. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to grant, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, a license under any of Licensor's existing or future patents.

You agree to follow all proprietary laws that apply to your use of the SpyShelter software. The SpyShelter license gives you no rights, titles or any interests in any intellectual property owned by the licensor, and this license creates no relationship between the licensor and you other than that of licensor and licensee. Rights which are not granted to you through this license are automatically reserved by the licensor. You are not allowed to use SpyShelter without the licensor's prior approval.

SpyShelter may use certain software developed by third parties. This software allows SpyShelter to do certain functions. All rights held by this third party software are reserved by the owner of the third party software and the owner of the third party software may enforce their rights against you directly in their own name.

SpyShelter Stasis Technology and Executable Behavior

SpyShelter can sometimes stop and hold executables in stasis to check executables for threats, or so you yourself can allow or deny the executable to launch. If certain executables must launch on boot for your PC to operate (or must launch for any other reason), please consider disabling this Application Control feature under the SpyShelter Protection screen. Otherwise, SpyShelter could cause some issues with your computer booting. Also, SpyShelter does its best to auto-allow all critical Microsoft published applications to launch, but Microsoft can update their publishing certificates at unexpected times and this could cause SpyShelter to cause technical issues for some devices with Microsoft software. If you are having booting issues please start your computer in Windows "Safe Mode" then turn off SpyShelter Application Control as shown under its Protection screen, that can be found from the bottom of the SpyShelter software navigation area. Please check our help web pages for help completely removing SpyShelter.

SpyShelter also has a setting called "When I'm Unavailable" in its settings. By default we make SpyShelter automatically make decisions on executables during boot that should not cause boot issues. If you change this setting to "Wait for me" we give the following warning: "DANGER: Denying processes during boot can cause serious startup failures". If your computer is used in mission critical situations please consider always using our "Allow all prompts" setting for this feature. Go to the top right cog icon in SpyShelter and choose "settings" to access this setting.
