I’ve just stopped using the app because of this. I’ll just use the web version.
For people waiting for this feature, don’t hold your breath. The vast majority of users don’t know this happens and won’t complain, so Figma is never fixing this. Developers are not their main audience, much less people with security or performance in mind.
And to be fair, if they fixed it there would be multiple threads complaining about fonts not working because they’ve disabled this, so from Figma’s perspective, it would be trading one issue for another.
I don’t see this as a reason for messing up with login items without consent, but this has long been a lost battle - most people don’t know or care about these things, so they never get done.
Stop it already!
I can’t believe you think this is a good solution.
Add a checkbox in settings.
I’m deleting Figma app until this is fixed
This is quite intrusive. If I chose not to allow it to run on launch it should not reappear again and again every time I open Figma. Malware vibes, big yikes.
Like many others, I’m deleting the App until this is fixed
Personnally, I’ll switch with an alternative. WTF is this company.
Same as the users above, I think this practice is outright abusive. I have deleted Figma and will not reinstall until this behaviour is stopped.
Grow up people, It’s not using many processes and Figma is giving us free access to almost all its features, the contest you looking for is that your Figma agent must be installed manually for the browser and local font, don’t install the app it if you don’t want it, so basically its contest for you there as Figma tells you this Boldy in instalation page.
Figma gives designers the ability to make money, if you are not a designer or you don’t want to say abusive, contest, etc go and complain the politicians stealing information from you every day. not poor Figma which is a helpful tool to you for just your local font. This generation…
Because of this crap, I stopped using the desktop app and deleted it. I feel more comfortable now.
I prefer manually add a font than let Figma start every time on login or startup… It’s really dummy practice to remove Figma agent every time. I agree with people, which because of this small frustrating detail leave the app regardless its free. And it doesn’t matter if you use Figma everyday. I use 6h per day Excel for example. Does it mean, that Excel should start after login? No, never, I want to choose which app starts with login. This is really ridiculous topic.
Please remove this. While I can see the use case, forcing this time and time again on each update without an opt-out option is not a great user experience.
It’s just stupid that this is the default behavior and there’s no way to disable it. This is simply ridiculous and invasive.
I would rather use Penpot, but unfortunately my company chose Figma. For those who have the possibility to choose what to use, I recommend Penpot.
This problem has been around for over six months now, but there is still no fix. This reminds me of Adobe’s behavior. They also did the same thing with the Adobe creative cloud, which bypassed the user and worked in the background on the system. Also, to say that this is only for updating fonts is ridiculous, then open the code for audit so that users can be sure of this.
Same issue here, please fix it!
