Mac’s Keylogger for Social Networks Captures Online Chats and More
The Mac OS now offers a new lineup of keyloggers for parental monitoring and employee productivity including the long-overdue inclusion of social networks and chat applications.
While traditional OS monitoring applications have the capacity to capture text typed into the keyboard such as those made when sending a message, there has never been a proper solution for capturing incoming text such as that made via incoming messages.
With this latest generation of Mac accountability applications in Apple’s App Store that is now a thing of the past. Online chats and messages made to and from the Mac laptop are now natively captured. They can be sorted in such a way that an online conversation can be segregated by applications such as WhatsApp, Viber or iMessage with each message being timestamped and taking place in chronological order.
This is very important as employers need the ability to differentiate between customer service and personal activity. The new Mac keylogger will also notify the user that they are being monitored; a highly efficient option as it is said to increase the productivity of workers by 20%.
This newer generation of employee accountability software only became possible with the recent release of macOS 10.15 Catalina. Specifically built from the ground up on this newest platform, it will be a cornerstone of future OS releases.
The new applications can also connect to iCloud which allows for the syndication of iPhone data such as photos, locations, messages and more. More importantly, these applications have an official OS certificate allowing them to operate without flagging anti-virus or trojan software just as any approved application in the App Store.
GPS tracking is another benefit of these next-generation Mac keylogging applications. Even brick and mortar businesses seem to prefer MacBooks over their desktop counterparts as more and more employees become contractors and their work environment becomes mobile.
Other behaviors that can be captured are audio and video through Mac’s camera and microphone. It can even be set to record video upon motion detection and record audio when a particular decibel level is breached. When considering these features along with iCloud syndication, you’ve got a fairly robust security system for your investment.
Installation is also much easier than the PC alternative. No need for system exemptions or alerts from virus detection. The keystroke logger can be installed remotely or by hand no different than any other App Store application.
For remote installation, users can simply log in to their control panel and select the data that they would like the keylogger to capture. Secondly, decide whether the user should or should not be notified that the device is being monitored; and finally, send the installation file to the remote Mac.
For local installation, users can simply download the application to a thumb drive and connect it to the Mac when it’s convenient. Installation is typically instantaneous as the file size is tiny; smaller than a typical photo.
