SniperSpy for Mac
If you share your computer with others and you want to make sure your own projects remain untouched, using an activity monitoring application might be the answer. SniperSpy is a desktop application that records various types of actions performed on a Mac and sends the data to an online service.
As a result, you will have remote access to detailed activity reports. Furthermore, SniperSpy also enables you to define access filters for apps, websites, or social networks. On top of that, you can restrict the computer usage to specific time periods.
Works in the background without making its presence known
SniperSpy is an extremely discreet application: you can access its main interface only if you know the correct keyboard combination (Command+Option+Shift+M). Otherwise, the app performs its monitoring and filtering duties without alerting the user.
Note that to use SniperSpy, you must first register for an account on the developer’s website: to access the app’s main window you must provide the credentials of your SniperSpy account. You can test the service by signing up for a 7 days trial account (free of charge).
Monitor the computer’s activity and create parental control filters
SniperSpy comes with a monitoring engine that is able to record keystrokes, chat conversations, the browsing history, file and folder changes, application usage data, and more. In addition, the app can also capture a screenshot at certain intervals.
On the other hand, you can use SniperSpy to block the access to certain apps, websites, social network websites or chat services. Imposing this type of restrictions can prove beneficial for one’s productivity, while also increasing the overall security level if the user is underaged.
Stealth activity monitoring solution with parental control options
SniperSpy is a great tool to have around if you want to make sure the activity conducted on your Mac matches specific standards. The app generates activity reports that can be accessed from a remote location, does not make its presence known to the user, can block the access to specific apps or websites, and more.
