Elite Keylogger

Elite Keylogger 1.8

Records user’s keystrokes and keeps logs of other activities.

Elite Keylogger can be installed on a computer to record various activities by other users, including keystrokes, clipboard contents, Internet logs and screenshots. The application runs invisibly for other users and saves all the data collected on an encrypted file. The tool is not difficult to configure. During the initial settings, it is necessary to provide a password, which prevents other users from controlling the application. In this regard, it is important not to forget it as there is no way you can retrieve it in such case.

Elite Keylogger runs quite unobtrusively from the menu bar and it can also be hidden altogether. From its main screen, you can easily turn monitoring on and off. It is also possible to view the activity logs. In this respect, you can use date-based filters or decide to view all activities or just the screenshots.

Similarly, the tool can be set to take automatic screenshots at the desired intervals. Likewise, it is allowed to monitor system keys. If you are worried that the logs may use too much storage space, there is the possibility of automatically clearing logs when they reach a given size. Luckily, you can even receive email notifications containing these logs as well.

Unlike other similar tools, Elite Keylogger cannot help you take a proactive stance as it does not allow blocking selected applications or websites. However, the logic behind this is that, if it did, it would become more noticeable to others.

All in all, although I dislike the idea of spying on anybody as much as I hate being spied, I have to admit that Elite Keylogger may be used for some righteous purposes, such as protecting your children from online stalkers and monitoring possible employee misconduct. There are both free and paid licenses of this product so you may want to read about their different features on the developer’s website.
