Spector Pro 2009 monitoring app comes to Mac

Spector Pro mac 2009

SpectorSoft has released its latest computer monitoring and surveillance software for the Mac, Spector Pro mac 2009. Previously only available for Windows, the Mac version includes many of the same features and creates a list of all keystrokes made on the computer -- saving them by application, date, and time. The program tracks of all chat and instant messages, reads e-mails sent and received, reviews every website visited and features a screen snapshot surveillance recorder that takes pictures of the screen as frequently as every five seconds.

Using the screen snapshot function people can view pictures in both a black and white or colored video-style playback, are able to fast forward or rewind the viewing, and can export all snapshot videos to QuickTime, iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, and Flash Video. Additional features make it possible for the snapshot recording to time out if no activity has taken place in an extended period of time, and to automatically resume when necessary.

The keystroke logger keeps track of all major IM programs such as iChat, AIM, MSN Yahoo and Adium, and stores both sides of the conversation chronologically. Authorized users can view every website that was visited, what was done on the website, what time it took place, what user is currently on the computer, and for how long. To help with security, the program can work in a stealth mode which will keep it from appearing on the Dock, and a password protection function that prevents non-privileged people from accessing the recordings. Lastly, the application can be used remotely to view what is going on from a different Mac or PC.

Spector Pro mac 2009 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and is available for purchase from the company's website for $100.

    When you have kids, you'll understand.

    er?


    when you have kids... you should understand how to be a parent.

    not a BFF that lets your kids get to the point where something as invasive and trust-destroying as this is needed.

    granted. that might take a little effort on your part. whereas this is install and forget and punish.

    stay classy.
