Do you get a virus warning?

Given this application is listening to every keyboard and mouse action, to display them on-screen for you, it is understandable some anti-virus software may throw alerts saying this application is malware or that it contains a virus. This is a false-positive alert.
KeyPress OSD is also listed on the official Microsoft Windows Store, with the exact same binary files. This should represent an additional reassurance of KeyPress OSD being virus free.

To avoid the warnings, download KeyPress OSD from Microsoft Windows Store.
