Macintosh Spy Software Hits The Market

AceSpy monitor everything an employee does on the computer and Internet
LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Retina-X Studios, LLC, announced today the immediate availability of AceSpy for Macintosh computers. Using this new spy technology, users can silently monitor everything their child or employee does on the computer and Internet. AceSpy Mac brings to OS X the same technology used by AceSpy for Windows for over six years.

AceSpy Mac runs in total stealth mode and no mentions of the program are shown on the Desktop, Dock, Applications Folder, Force Quit Applications menu or Menu Bar.

After the software is set up on the Macintosh, it silently records actual screenshots every sixty seconds by default. It also captures text logs of keystrokes typed, entire chat conversations, applications ran and web site visits with complete content recording.

Any concerned parent or employer can know the complete truth, with pictures. All logs can be viewed on the Macintosh by pressing a secret set of keys together at once, which brings up a password box. After the password is typed, users can view a full-screen slideshow of the screenshots with rewind and forward controls, along with the normal text logs of activity.

Users also have the option of having new logs sent to their email address at any rate they choose, such as hourly. This gives parents the ability to monitor their child's Mac from their work computer or another computer at home. It gives employers a way to keep tabs of multiple employees inside a single email address.

"I have been very happy with the product. It's great and lets me protect my children, and I really don't want to be without it," says Diana Sanderson, an AceSpy customer in New York. PC Pro magazine adds, "If you're really worried about the scare stories of online predators that frequent the tabloids and news programmes, AceSpy is a must."

This effective system helps businesses enforce their Acceptable Use Policy on company-provided Macintosh computers. The software can also help enforce teen or family rules on Mac computers. It gives a parent the ability to remotely monitor their child's Internet activities from any web browser by logging into their email.

AceSpy Mac costs $59.97 and works with all Macintosh makes and models running Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard, Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard or Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger. AceSpy Mac is also available for Windows computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7. The product can be found at
