SPECTOR PRO has deservedly earned its reputation as not only the most trusted monitoring software in the world, but as also the most feature-rich, while being easy and intuitive... even for beginners!
SPECTOR PRO is appropriate for parents concerned about what their children do online, or worried about protecting their children from the dangers of the Internet.
SPECTOR PRO is also ideal for businesses concerned about how their employees use company computers. Are your employees goofing off too much online? Sending sexually or racially offensive email jokes? Spreading company confidential information in anonymous chat and message boards? You'll find out with SPECTOR PRO.
To give you a clear picture of what your child is doing on the computer, SPECTOR PRO continually takes snapshots of whatever is on the computer screen. These snapshots can be taken as frequently as once a second, or they may be taken based on user activity, such as clicking the mouse, visiting a new web page or launching a program. This gives you an extremely accurate and visual view of what the person you are monitoring has been doing on the computer. Reviewing the recordings is simple with easy to use video-style controls. Move forward one screen at a time to see step by step what they were doing on the computer, or click "PLAY" and the snapshots play back like a movie. Skip ahead, instantly rewind, jump to a specific date and time or even print individual snapshots.
You simply click on the Chat/IM Activity button, and you will see a list of ALL conversations. SPECTOR PRO is designed to record both sides of a conversation in iChat, IRC, Jabber, Skype, Trillian and others. Or, you can review the messages from the Top 10 people most frequently chatted with or just the conversations on Facebook or MySpace.
SPECTOR PRO records both sides of a conversation allowing you to see what your children or employees are saying as well as how other chat participants respond.
Plus, SPECTOR PRO has a built-in dictionary of thousands of common chat acronyms to decode and display the true meaning of shortcuts that kids use, such as "POS" ... "parent over shoulder", "MIRL" ..."meet in real life", "ASL" ..."age/sex/location".
Kids use Facebook and Social Networking sites to connect with other kids. They post personal information about themselves, put pictures and videos in their profile for others to see, invite other people to become their "friends" and spend a lot of time chatting and viewing the pages created by other users. Sometimes, they meet people in person through contacts they make in cyberspace.
Unfortunately, the information they post about themselves is readily available to almost anyone else using the Internet, and that includes millions of adults of all ages, thousands of whom are sexual predators trying to prey on young people.
Parents tell us every day of their great concern about the dangers to their children posed by web sites such as Facebook and MySpace, and there are stories in the news almost daily about adults soliciting and meeting children they found online.
SPECTOR PRO records ALL your child's Facebook and MySpace Activity so you will know exactly what they are doing. You will see when they update their profile, post pictures, make comments about other users, send messages, invite someone to be a friend, accept an invitation from a new friend, and much more. You will also be able to see whether they have created multiple Facebook and MySpace accounts. You can also view the profiles of people who are contacting your child. So, you'll know if your 13 year old is communicating with a 40 year old who has posted inappropriate pictures of himself or talks about using drugs and alcohol on his profile page.
Anything your child does on Facebook and MySpace, SPECTOR PRO will record and you will be able to review.
With SPECTOR PRO, you will know what was typed, where and when it was typed, and you will also know WHO typed it because SPECTOR PRO keeps a record of who is logged into the computer.
SPECTOR PRO will save every key typed on the Mac keyboard. SPECTOR PRO not only captures standard alphanumeric keystrokes, but also records "hidden" characters and keystroke combinations, such as the Shift and Ctrl key, as well as "true" keystrokes which may otherwise appear differently on screen (such as an * when a password is typed).
Keystroke recordings are organized chronologically by Application and by Window allowing you to easily differentiate between what is typed in a word processing document, email, spreadsheet, or Internet browser (even passwords). If you are concerned about your child providing phone numbers and addresses to strangers online, then use SPECTOR PRO's search function to locate keystrokes typed and jump to recorded screen images in Screen Snapshots.
Is your teenager researching projects for school, seeking out free music or porn, looking for new friends online or contemplating suicide? Is an employee seeking information on professional growth, considering a job change or being distracted from doing work? Are they daydreaming of a new car, electronic gadget, or movie star?
By seeing BOTH what they looked for and the web sites they subsequently visited, you are able to determine their goal.
SPECTOR PRO is the first product that easily allows you to quickly see exactly what they are searching for on the Internet. In a matter of seconds, you will be able to see what they have been searching for, and whether they search for this only occasionally, or on a daily basis.
The Web Sites Visited recorder is much more sophisticated than the History feature of your web browser, providing you with important details including: Time of Last Visit, Duration of Time on the Web Site, Active Time on Web Site, Total Number of Visits to the Web Site and more!
Additionally, you can quickly highlight recorded web sites and choose to block future access with a single click—or take preventative action and create your own list of web sites to block.
With SPECTOR PRO's advanced and intuitive web site recording, you will get a quick, yet exact picture of each person's web surfing regardless of the web browser they are using.
Sometimes, you don't want or need to see every detail. You just want a summary. The Top 10 Summary Report allows you to see days or weeks of recordings at a glance. You'll be able to see which web sites your child or employee is spending the most time on. If you see that your son is spending 4 hours a day on a gaming site and not getting his homework done, you can easily block him from accessing that site with one simple click of the mouse. You'll also be able to see a list of the people your child is chatting with the most. Is your daughter chatting every day with someone you've never heard of? Click and find out the content of these conversations.
Top 10 shows who they are emailing the most and who is sending them the most email. It also shows you which programs they are using the most. Top 10 also shows you what they're searching for on Google, AOL, Yahoo, MSN, Bing and other search engines.
You can see a summary of any Top 10 activity for the past day, past week or past month.
To review the email recordings, simply click on the Email Activity tab and SPECTOR PRO will list all of the incoming and outgoing emails. See whether the email was sent or received, who sent it, who received it, the subject of the email, and the time and date the email was sent or received.
With a click of a button, all emails can be viewed by Sender, Recipient, Subject and Time/Date. Click on a specific email, and you will see the contents of the email. With SPECTOR PRO, you even have the option of recording email attachments.
It's easy to look at all the emails received on a particular date or all the emails sent to or received from a particular person, all with one or two clicks.
SPECTOR PRO records email sent and received through popular email programs such as Apple Mail, Microsoft Outlook for Mac, Mozilla Thunderbird and other POP/SMTP email clients.
For each program, SPECTOR PRO will capture the name of the person who used the program, when the program was started and how long the program was running.
In addition, SPECTOR PRO will provide even more useful information, such as how much time the program was ACTIVELY used. Were your kids playing games all afternoon instead of doing homework? Was a program simply opened and left on-screen, an indication someone might be trying to deceive you into thinking they were working all day in Word and Excel (when they were really surfing the web)?
With SPECTOR PRO, you will know, because SPECTOR PRO keeps track of other information, such as keystrokes typed and mouse movements, to help determine whether a program is being actively used. SPECTOR PRO also shows you EXACTLY how many keystrokes have been typed in each application. If your administrative assistant typed only 80 keystrokes in Word or Excel all day, what are the chances they were doing much work? Of course, with SPECTOR PRO's other recording features, like Screen Snapshots, you won't have to guess.
Program Activity allows you to see at a glance ALL of the applications that have been used each day. If someone downloads a new program that starts affecting the performance of your computer, you'll be able to quickly see the new program in SPECTOR PRO.
Each keyword alert contains the following information:
You tell SPECTOR PRO which words and phrases to watch out for - for example, "sex," "drugs," "guns," "phone number," "where do you live," "are your parents home," "I hate my boss" - whatever YOU decide to include. You also tell SPECTOR PRO where to send the INSTANT ALERTS ... to your email address ... at the office or on your cell phone.
Then, when the person using the computer TYPES in one of these words or phrases, or when they are chatting and one of these words comes up, or when they are sending or receiving an email with one of these words or phrases, SPECTOR PRO responds IMMEDIATELY and sends you an email letting you know exactly what is happening so you can take action.
Are your employees using the company's high-speed Internet connection to steal music, watch porn or download large video files, tying up your valuable network bandwidth while exposing your company to potential legal liability? Do you want your company servers harboring stolen music, pornography or pirated software?
Files uploaded to web sites like MySpace, Facebook and YouTube, including personal pictures, videos and music are recorded by SPECTOR PRO. You'll be able to tell if your children are posting pictures of themselves on public web sites where strangers can see them.
Do your children use the computer during times when you have asked them not to, such as when they are supposed to do their homework or after bedtime? Are your employees arriving to work late, leaving early or taking long breaks?
You will get a very quick answer with the User Activity chart in SPECTOR PRO that allows you to view computer usage by day, week or month for each person using the computer.
SPECTOR PRO provides a quick-view visual time sheet of when the computer is being used and when it is not being used. You'll be able to tell when family members or employees have logged on and logged off of the computer. You'll also be able to see whether they are actively using the computer, or whether they log on and walk away for long periods, or just sit there and do nothing.
Does your child save "special" files onto a CD/DVD burner and you can't see them? Or, do they disconnect a secret portable hard drive or USB memory stick to hide downloaded music and video files from you?
Document Tracking ensures that these events don't go unnoticed. Now you can demand to see, confiscate or destroy any files you deem inappropriate for your children.
Are your employees copying sensitive files to floppy disks, Zip disks, CDs, DVDs, USB drives, memory sticks or simply printing out these documents and transporting them off company premises?
Document Tracking will Identify the culprits and allow you to put a stop to the loss of sensitive and/or confidential company information.
SPECTOR PRO offers three levels of security that protect the program and recorded data from being altered or tampered with. Security features include: Stealth Mode, Hot Key Access and Password Protection
SPECTOR PRO has become the gold standard in Internet monitoring software because of its ease of installation and use, and its comprehensive recording capabilities of just about every kind of Internet activity. With SPECTOR PRO you will know who is using your Mac, what they are doing online and ultimately... take back control of your home or office computer.
