From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Closed source) Proprietary software (or closed source software) does not let people see or change source code of the computer software. It is the opposite of free software.
Closed-source software is maintained by a team who produces their product in a compiled -executable state, which is what the market is allowed access to.
