Installing sudoSignals

sudoSignals runs as a local process on your Windows computer. In order for Signals to monitor your applications, we need to install the local service to keep your installation looking its best.

If you need an older version of Signals, you can see all of the sudoSignals releases here.

Windows Protection


We’re working on getting our Windows application publisher certificate. In the meantime, there’s an extra step to getting the installer working.
