Frequently asked questions
What is the Anti-Tamper solution?
Our Anti-Tamper solution prevents reverse engineering and changing of executable files in order to strengthen the security of games. Not a DRM (Digital Rights Management) solution in itself, Denuvo Anti-Tamper protects DRM solutions, such as Origin Online Access or the Steam license management system, from being circumvented.
How does Anti-Tamper work?
The DRM from the game platform (like Steam, Origin or Epic) grants legitimate consumers access to the game and our Anti-Tamper solution ensures that these DRM systems are not bypassed.
Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper have any negative impact on a game or customer experience?
No. Since only performance non-critical game functions are used in the Anti-Tamper process, Anti-Tamper has no perceptible effect on game performance nor is Anti-Tamper to blame for any game crashes of genuine executables.
What is the difference between DRM and Anti-Tamper?
A Digital Rights Management (DRM) system binds the game to a legitimate user account and allows the game to be played whenever and wherever the consumer wants to download and execute the game.
Anti-Tamper stops the reverse engineering and debugging of the DRM solution, but it has no effect or limitation on the legitimate consumer. Anti-Tamper is completely transparent to legitimate game buyers and does not in any way impose activation limits, install drivers, or require a gamer to be “always on.”
Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper constantly encrypt and decrypt data on storage media?
No, Denuvo Anti-Tamper does not continuously encrypt and decrypt any data on storage media. To do so would be of no benefit in terms of security or performance. Watch this video to learn more.
Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper affect my SSD or any other type of hard drives in any way?
No. Denuvo Anti-Tamper does not constantly read or write any data on your storage media.
Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper leave any files on my computer after I uninstall a game?
Depending on the game, one Denuvo-related file may be left on your computer after you uninstall the game. However, this file is inert and you can either manually delete it or leave it on your system without it affecting your PC in any way.
Which operating systems are supported by Denuvo Anti-Tamper?
The Denuvo Anti-Tamper solution supports the following Windows versions:
- Windows 7
- Windows 8
- Windows 8.1
- Windows 10
- Windows 11
Additionally, it also supports Linux via the Proton emulation layer.
How can game developers stop their game from being pirated?
By incorporating anti-tamper solutions to their game, developers can protect their licensed games from being distributed illegally or cloned. This way, the games are not shared freely or for pirates’ profits.
Is it difficult to apply anti-tamper solutions to video games?
This depends on your provider. If the solution is a ready-to-use extra layer, you can integrate it quickly. But if you need to apply it on top of gaming code, it can take weeks to implement.
What is GPS spoofing in video games?
It is faking one’s location through modifying your IP address to appear as if you are somewhere else. Since GPS signals are not encrypted, an external app can override it. Cheaters exploit this by either sabotaging the game or unfairly winning location-based rewards.
What solution can detect GPS spoofing?
GPS spoofing can be detected by applying, for example, root detection and mock provider detection tampering. Mobile Protection DSK offers both those features.
Can Denuvo secure Nintendo Switch games?
Yes, Denuvo developed the industry’s first Nintendo Switch Emulator Protection which puts an end to the piracy of Nintendo Switch games. The solution helps prevent the emulation of your licensed Nintendo Switch games, securing your revenue.
How does Nintendo Switch Emulator Protection work?
It seamlessly integrates into your build toolchain and detects any differences in behavior in the game than it was designed for. This way, the software can tell if the game is being tampered with and makes it unplayable for the associated party.
