    Personally, IMO you might want to ask this in the forums for that software.

    I won't answer any of these questions since, heck, we don't know if your installing it (since you said you share it with a 'friend') to do something malicious to your 'friend' or if your wanting to prove he/she is doing something they shouldn't on your machine.

    Like for instance, getting someone wow account info (hypothetically speaking) so you can log them in, mail you some gold or gear, then log them out,which fortunately (at least as far as I know) won't log passwords that are masked with asterisks.

    Software like this can be so abused you have to understand peoples reactions here. It has it's good points and bad points.

    Example, I suspect my wife cheating on me, I would get it to monitor chat logs but if it proved she wasn't, and she found out, the ramifications could... nay WOULD be disastrous.

    Regardless, the forums there have actual users that can answer your questions probably better than most here.

    Your best bet is probably to contact their support and ask them directly. That said, depending on what you are trying to do, you may want to go another route... I'm assuming you are worried about this person using your computer to look at pornography or other possibly illegal uses like downloading copyrighted music or movies?

    If that is the case, a better solution might be to install a very visible parental control software that only you have the password to. Then tell them that they are using your computer, so there are limits to what you want done with it. That might be a better solution both for protecting your computer and your friendship.

    One big issue with a keylogger - you don't have control over what it records. You will VERY likely end up with their credit card number, social security number, user names to any number of websites (it claims no passwords) and private conversations. That could be construed as a serious violation of personal privacy, and depending on the situation I could see possible legal problems, similar to how if a phone conversation is being recorded, in many states they must be told about it.

    I think his "friend" is his wife and he wants to see if she is cheating. Classy move...

    I know that my dad recently installed this app in my MacBook Pro. I saw his purchase link in the history. But I don't know where it is. Any effective way to find it out. It is terrible that he can see everything I do with my computer.
    additional: I got my MacBook just for about 2 month. And i am not good at mac os actually.
