Inspect Mac Installer Packages

These days, most apps no longer require an Installer, so when I find one that does, I run this to ensure it’s not going to install something malicious.

Do you know what files that Installer package actually installs? Do you know what scripts it runs during installation, and what they do? Do you know who the package really came from?

With Suspicious Package, you can answer these questions and more. Maybe you’re quite literally suspicious of a package you’ve downloaded. Or perhaps you’re just curious about what some package does. Or maybe you want to find out after the fact exactly what files a package scattered across your computer. Whatever the reason, Suspicious Package allows you to see inside an installer package. (And it’s completely free.)

I love this app.
