Stealth Monitoring

Without fail, one of the first features a spy software should offer is to run invisibly and silently. You don’t want it to be detected. The user will never know they are being monitored by iKeyMonitor. The inability to detect this software is where the core value of it lies.

Basically, if you’re on the Internet, you’re most likely on social media. iKeyMonitor knows how big social media is. That’s why you’ll be able to monitor social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and so on. Truth is, the Internet isn’t the safest place. However, iKeyMonitor will help you keep your kids secure.

Here are some more the remarkable features offered:

  • Logs Keystrokes and captures data entered.
