Macintosh computers do not have the popularity that Windows based computers have. With that being said, the tracking software options for Mac users are very limited. There is only one Macintosh tracking software available that will track OS9 and OSX.
Enter Spector for Macintosh.
This is the most powerful Macintosh logging software that is able to provide you with an exact visual detail of any application that was used, web site visited, chat conversation that occurs, emails sent or received, and all keystrokes typed.
How does it work?
Simple, you install Spector for Mac on the computer that you need to track and it will take snapshots every few seconds, store those tracked images in a hidden location only you know about, and when you have the chance to get to the Mac that you are tracking, you enter the program with a hotkey combination and password and you will have an exact visual record of EVERYTHING that has been done.
In addition to the powerful snapshot tracking tool, Spector for Mac will ALSO track every keystroke that they type on the computer.
• If they type an email, you will see they keystrokes.
• If they type a password, you will track it.
• If they post on a blog, you will know about it.
Reviewing the tracked activity is very simple.
The snapshots can be viewed in a similar fashion as a VCR. You may click play, fast forward, rewind and pause. This will allow you to view everything that they have done, but provide you with the flexibility to quickly see specific tracked snapshots at the click of a button.
Lets say that your child was online between 3:00 and 5:00. You were with the for the first hour, but had to leave for the second hour. Because this Macintosh Tracking software time stamps all images, you can quickly go to the exact time that you were not there and see EXACTLY what they did.
