Login Items entry doesn't say BetterTouchTool

Describe the bug
If I go to "System Settings -> General -> Login Items", one of the entries reads folivora.AI GmbH which is totally out of place and different from the other items there. The icon is also missing so this looks sketchy or like malware at first glance.

It would be great if the entry read BetterTouchTool (similar to how the other ones are set up) and had the right icon.


Device information:

  • Type of Mac: M1 14" MBP 2021
  • macOS version: Ventura 13.2.1
  • BetterTouchTool version: 4.022

This is not a bug but a limitation in macOS. Apple automatically uses the name of the developer team the app is code-signed with for command line tools (because command line tools do not have an associated info file hat would expose the name of the app).
AFAIK there is no way to prevent that, many apps are affected by this. The list in your screenshot also lists normal app bundles like Bartender or 1Password - for these it will work, that's why they can show an icon and a sensible name.

However this is only true for the "Process Priority Helper Tool", which you can safely uninstall (in the BTT settings) if you are running macOS Ventura - it's not really needed anymore.

Got it, thanks Andreas! I'll uninstall the "Process Priority Helper Tool" - it would be great to add a note or notification that it's not needed on Ventura.
