    Tobii eyeX autostarts with windows. Is there a way to turn that off? Like with Infinite screen?

    EyeX makes my mouse and keyboard unresponsive sometimes on startups. So i have to restart my computer and then it usually works again.

    Hi Ronnie (@rior),

    We do not include the option to disable automatic startup within the Tobii software directly, however you configure the application to load manually by launching ‘services.msc’ from the run command via start menu, navigating to ‘Tobii Service’ and selecting ‘Manual’ as startup type.

    Hi Grant,

    that is not a nice behavior for a software. This is very bad to think to have a software which has to start with every system start without letting the user decide if yes or no.

    Think of the change of that behavior.

    I’ll create a request for an option to turn off auto start.

    I would like to add my support for an option to turn off auto start (of the tray app). Disabling the service doesn’t really work for me as it breaks Windows Hello support but the tray app is not required for that.

    I also agree with the op. This sort of behavior is not nice and you need to provide a way to disable this. You as the software company need to respect the end user’s sovereignty over their system. You have made a purposeful decision to hide the ability to disable the autostart from typical users. Why? To force data collection I would imagine. Shame.

    Hi @niklasm, thanks for your input. Whilst the feature request has already been logged, I will add your voice in support of this introduction.
