I just upgraded from a Moneydance 2017 version to version 2022.2. This was a paid upgrade.

I was extremely disappointed to see that this "privacy respecting" software makes an https connection to ( on startup, even with the "Check for Updates" disabled.

There is no reason this software should ever phone home when this option is disabled.

    Hi Tim,

    This must be the license key checker, to see if a license key has been refunded. I'll have to see if there is a more privacy-friendly way to do this. Currently the only thing being transmitted is the license key, and even then it's not being tied to any personal information nor logged, but still I understand that any kind of connection back to the server is suspicious.
