Casedo is built to the highest standards and digitally signed for both Windows and Mac computers. But how can you be sure?

Casedo is currently directly downloaded from our website and not from and App Store. Casedo is also an offline software meaning that it needs to be installed directly onto a local computer. This presents obvious risks and no one should install software that can’t be completely trusted.

The good news is that your computer will almost certainly check any software you try to install and will give you warnings on any software that is not digitally signed. Digital signing means that you can be sure a piece of software hasn’t been tampered with or altered since it was built by the relevant software developers.

To be able to digitally sign Casedo, we as a business (Casedo is owned and created by Alkhamware Limited), need to go through a rigorous and costly process of checks on the business itself so that our software can be identified very easily as ours, should there be any problems. Both Apple and Microsoft have different processes in place for digital signing. The Microsoft process uses third parties, at Casedo we use Digicert.

  2. Go to the Casedo download page and download Casedo directly from our website
  3. Install again

How to I check Casedo before installation to see if it is digitally signed?

This varies from Mac to Microsoft, here’s how to check.

This is fairly easy. Navigate the the Casedo .exe file and right click on it. On the context menu select Properties, you might have to first select Show more options before the Properties option appears. Once you have done that follow the graphic below to find the certificate.

Mac will tell you when the application is first run if it’s verified or not:

However, you can also run a command line to check (you’ll need to open the Terminal app to do this):

codesign -dv /Applications/

If the App is signed, the response will be something like:

If the App is NOT signed, the response will be something like:
