Review: Elite Keylogger for Mac helps you log computer activity, surreptitiously

Record keystrokes, clipboard text, and Web activity without the user's knowledge, using Elite Keylogger for Mac.

Elite Keylogger for Mac records everything a user types on the monitored computer, whether it's for a document, an e-mail, or a Web form, and can secretly deliver the information to your e-mail address. The free version performs well and comes with a nice interface and useful features, but doesn't compare with the Pro version, which operates invisibly and can track even passwords.

When installing Elite Keylogger for Mac, you can choose between the free and pro version. The free version operates in visible mode and cannot track passwords. Once set, the app automatically monitors keystrokes, Web activity, and clipboard content on the computer on which it is installed, and can take screenshots at a predefined interval, providing you with a textual as well as a visual log. All the information can be silently sent to your e-mail address, without the knowledge of the user who's being monitored. The app lets you browse data by type -- Keystrokes, Screenshots, Web-activity, and Clipboard. Clipboard, for instance, gave us detailed information on the text, application used, date, and time. The result was similar with Web activity, too. Apart from date and time, here we were also able to see the title of each Web page that was visited, displayed as a clickable URL.

You will love Elite Keylogger for Mac if you want to secretly gather data and create a visual log of activity on your Mac. For a free app it offers a lot of neat features and will be especially useful if you're a parent worried about your child's Web activity. However, if you're looking for a hidden app that tracks passwords and runs invisibly, then you should go for the Pro version.
