    Hi Ralf Sohnsmeier,

    This service is totally safe and it's not a fishing one, but Luminar 4 uses it for updates.

    Perhaps there is a tick in the tick box permitting analytic data to be collected, although if I recall it is not ticked by default.

    Helena,

    Interesting, ! year ago Luminar's Kirk Osborn stated "Hi. We use these sites for analytics purposes" and the list then included gtly.to

    https://community.skylum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360048343332-gtly-to

    If that is the case it should have been disabled by a tick in the tickbox on the Analytic preference, as I suggested some 20 hours ago, but that post is still Pending Approval..

    This is the URL shortener that causes this issue. We contacted the provider of this tool and this issue should be fixed soon. Please stay tuned.

    Here is a copy of their reply:

    "It seems that our public gtly.ink domain has been flagged by a few virus scanners as phishing. This normally happens to public URL shortener domains because it is utilized by many customers to generate short links. We continuously scan all links created by our customers but occasionally some may bypass these scanners and get picked up virus scanner. Our team is already in contact with the virus scanning companies to get our domain whitelisted."

    For now, you can add https://gtly.ink/ to the list of exceptions in your antivirus software.
