It’s a way to track every keystroke on your Mac and save it to a safe place. You never know when you might need what you’ve already typed. Or, a keylogger can be used to record every keystroke on someone else’s computer, so you can capture privileged, or perhaps secret, information. Think of the possibilities.
Think good. Don’t think evil. Perfect Keylogger is a Mac keylogger app. It captures keystrokes.
Capturing Keystrokes For Fun & Profit
Used on your own Mac to capture your own keystrokes for backup is smart. But a keylogger is also a stealth monitoring system.
It invisibly records all the Mac’s keystrokes. Email. Forms. iChat (in both directions). Whatever you type gets saved, and reports can be sent to you via email or uploaded to a website.
This is an app that can be fun, useful as a backup, or for nefarious information gathering because it records all the keystrokes on your Mac.
Perfect Keylogger runs in the background so it’s not easily discovered. It will record all Mac users on a Mac. It even snaps screenshots, blocks websites, and takes photos (using the Mac’s built-in camera).
There’s a built-in log viewer, too, so you can scan through all the keystrokes.
Can it be used to capture login IDs and passwords? Yes. It’s an extra cost option, but that’s what Perfect Keylogger can do.
This is both good and bad. Good if you use a keylogger for good reasons (if your app crashes while working a document, you have an instant backup). Or, bad if you intend to capture information without telling the Mac user.
I know of a few companies that use keyloggers on their Mac’s and PCs, though their policy is to tell users about the keylogger.
Oh, and talk about selling bullets to both sides in a war. The same company that makes Perfect Keylogger also provides a Keylogger Detector. You know, just in case your paranoia spills on yourself.
