"Works! Need readme file"

July 10, 2013  |  By theGriswald88

2013-07-10 18:12:45  |  By theGriswald88

 |  Version: logKext 2.3

Pros

Very simple
Very barebones system that is hard to spot because it doesn't have complicated features that malfunction
Without proper read-me file, or understanding, could be confusing (I listed this as a con as well), to someone who doesn't know much about computers or how to use terminal, this might be a con, but it makes it more elusive and that's the point for most keloggers.

Cons

Maybe too simple
Not tons of features
Without proper read-me file, or understanding, could be confusing

Summary

Great open source program. Very simple and basic, and if you simply want to keep an eye on your system and know if people are using it, it's a great tool

"Works well just needs a user interface"

January 26, 2013  |  By omsaj

2013-01-26 05:54:43  |  By omsaj

 |  Version: logKext 2.3

Pros

logs all key strokes without being detected
simple to install and use
runs automatically
logs passwords

Cons

logs all keystrokes including "delete" so it might get confusing when reading logs
no manual so its slightly confusing at first
when you open the logs to read it will create a .txt file on the desktop which may giveaway personal info if you forget to delete it
biggest problem is no timestamp and doesnt tell which application is being used during logging so some guess work is required

Summary

great for a free product, it works as advertised.
just make sure you delete the .txt file created after reading the log so that no one stumbles upon you keylogs and user names/passwords

"Great free tool"

April 09, 2011  |  By drdogg49

 |  Version: logKext 2.3

Pros

This is a barebones free tool to provide basic keylogging on your Mac.

Cons

The included documentation is a little skimpy, but that's what you get for free.

Summary

This is a great free tool that works as advertised. There are issues with getting the initial password to work, but go to http://code.google.com/p/logkext/wiki/Password for more details. It does work.

"Just didn't work"

June 15, 2010  |  By zJorge

2010-06-15 08:33:30  |  By zJorge

 |  Version: logKext 2.3

Pros

It's free, easy to install and... sorry, could not use it so can't really find another pro.

Cons

Incomplete documentation, unable to run it.

Summary

It was very easy to install but the password on the documentation wasn't actually the password so I couldn't run it. The poor content on the documentation recommends you to change the password, they just don't say how. No troubleshooting and there is not an URL to see more information or updated documentation.

Of course, it is free so why am I asking for support or documentation right? "You get what you pay for", you might say. Well, I am just saving you the hassle of downloading it.
