I have heard that some Russian softwares are suspected of being used by hackers. Is ABBYY safe?
Hi, Jan. It's a legitimate company. They are global.
However, if you just want a straight PDF reader, there are plenty of other options.
Some browsers like Edge and Firefox have their own built in PDF reader.
I have not seen anything regarding ABBYY. Kaspersky, however, has been in the news a lot lately. Kaspersky's possible ties to the Russian government, and the potential of that government to have access to all information on any computer that is running Kaspersky, have led to Best Buy dropping their products and the US Department of Homeland Security today ordering federal agencies to stop using their software.
