Hotkeys not working and constant “Secure input activated” message

Since updating to Mac OS 10.13.4 BTT my hotkeys are no longer working. My guess is that a connected symptom is that BTT constantly displays the “Secure input activated” message in its dropdown menu, even when the app that is listed as the culprit likely did not in fact activate secure input. In the attached screenshot for example the identified app is Finder, which seems not to make any sense to me, but at times other apps are shown as well, even though they did not create a conflict in the past.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):


Device information:

  • Type of Mac: mid-2016 Macbook Pro
  • macOS version: 10.13.4
  • BetterTouchTool version: 2.503

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):

Note: Before bug reporting, please make sure you have the latest version of BetterTouchTool and that you have already tried to restart your system :-). If you encounter a crash, please attach a crash log from the macOS from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.

Probably the same as here: BTT does NOT switch to old keyboard implementation even if it is checked, thus let's continue there.

Unfortunately not much you can do right now but to permanently switch to the "old keyboard shortcut implementation" in the advanced preferences.
It seems like some apps cause secure input to be constantly activated. (One app that we know is causing this is Webroot SecureAnywhere).

The guys from Textexpander have collected a list of potentially conflicting apps:
