Installing ACE with your administrator password

In order to install or update the ACE audio capture component – used by Loopback – you’ll need to enter your Mac’s administrator password.

An example of the password prompt when installing the ACE component.

Your administrator password is set by you, and it's specific to your Mac. It is not something Rogue Amoeba knows or has access to. Your administrator password is used to log in to the administrator account on your Mac, as well as to secure various settings in System Preferences.
