Spector Pro is Big Brother on your Mac, watching every move your
children (or employees, spouse, or roommates) make and generating
searchable logs for easy snooping. When the app runs in Stealth mode,
it’s truly stealth, not appearing in the Dock, Applications folder,
Force Quit menu, System Profiler, or anywhere else. Just press your
personal key-combo, then type your chosen password, and you can keep
tabs on nearly anything the users of the monitored Mac do.
