If you would like to get a glimpse of someone’s computer activities without them knowing about it, SpyCobra is the key. In fact, this USB drive works similar to a key.
Plug it into the computer to be monitored and the software will be discreetly installed. Then remove the drive and walk away. When it’s time to retrieve the information, plug the SpyCobra back into the computer and everything will be uploaded onto it. Take it away and examine it later, in private, on a personal computer. If you think it sounds like a passive GPS vehicle tracking device, you’ve got the concept.
The computer user will find no telltale hardware. Most antispyware software won’t detect it.
See desktop screenshots, websites visited and keystrokes. One unique feature of the SpyCobra software is that the user can set the frequency of screenshots, either by time (every 30 seconds to 10 minutes) or by trigger words. Monitor both sides of an IM conversation or direct the SpyCobra to display recent conversations.
- Parents can monitor their children’s Internet use.
- Employers can investigate their staff’s suspicious activities.
- Private investigators can gather evidence.
- Hook it up to your own computer to find out what others are doing on it while you’re gone.
The SpyCobra has 1 GB memory and it works on Windows XP, Vista, and Vista Sp1. It is not Mac compatible.
What makes this device different is that it doesn't have to be left plugged into a PC. You plug it into a USB port and within 15 seconds you can install a small piece of software that will log keys, remember web sites visited and take screen shots at regular intervals.
There’s no hardware to detect and when you want to retrieve the information gathered, you just plug the Spy Cobra unit into the PC again and everything will be uploaded onto it, so you can take it away and examine it later.
