Imagine - you're at a coffee shop, and return to your table to find your computer has been stolen. What if your computer could contact you and help you find it? With Tattletale, it can.
Tattletale helps you monitor who is using your computer, and can help you recover it if stolen.
Tattletale takes snapshots using your computer's iSight camera and traces connection information each time someone logs onto your account or wakes your computer. It can be set to run in the background, giving no indication that your computer is being monitored. You can set a password to prevent other users from changing settings or quitting the app.
Setup is simple and can be done in less than a minute. Snapshots may be saved to a folder of your choice and/or emailed directly to you along with location information which can assist in recovery of your computer in the event it is stolen. 

Location information includes the computer's public IP address and the network and internet service provider it is connected through. Working with police, internet service providers can trace the IP address to a specific user account - and street address. Tattletale also provides approximate location based on your computer's built-in positioning capabilities (when available).
Key features:
✓ Logs snapshots for each login / wake
✓ Traces IP address and internet connection (ISP) information
✓ Saves data to location of your choice
✓ Optional password protection for all settings, including quit
✓ Optional email notifications
✓ Use your own email account to send notifications!
✓ Notifications can be disabled on trusted networks (such as your home or office)
✓ Provides approximate location, when available (requires wifi connection).
★★ Important: Location estimates come directly from the operating system. Availability and accuracy may vary depending on your location. In the event your computer is stolen, the public IP address and ISP information are the best way to locate your computer.
