There are ways to discover a spy if you suspect that someone is accessing your personal information. Here are some practical keys to detect suspicious activity and follow their tracks.
You come home after work and turn on your computer. You don’t know why, but you get the feeling that it is not in the same State in which you left it. It is not the first time, and you begin to suspect that your partner may have some interest in knowing what information save on your computer. The next day, you decide to leave the computer with some open windows and to your back remain open but not in the same order. Anything you don’t like is there.
You’re working at home, your partner has gone shopping, or at least, that’s what you said.You see your open Facebook login and a direct message with the subject “you miss”.Close it desconcertad @. But the next day, think what will be your strategy: a spyware.You install it and you have access to your direct messages from Facebook.
Your hij @ has the extran days @. He spends many hours chatting on the computer and does not already come out with friends. You fear that you’ve known someone who is not who claims to be.
Is it legal to instant checkmate review?
No is your partner, friend, family member or hij @ with who live, no one is legitimate for direct access (as we previously discussed in another post on the remote control) to the content of your personal information and violate your privacy. Does not need to carry out some type of modification, alteration or damage in the system such as copy, subtract your personal files, delete e-mails or talks of Whatsapp, obtain and even to change the passwords for your different applications. If it goes beyond, install you a Keylogger. All of these actions are the crime’s discovery and disclosure of secrets, of which I speak both.
If the excuse is a parental control that consists of knowing which pages to visit your child, you have to bear in mind that the keyloggers recorded not only the access to websites with adult or inappropriate content, but that includes all its activity, who chat and the content of the talks.
Long eye with consent or authorize this type of spyware at home or at work. They record your browsing history but also keys and passwords of all the applications that you use or the conversations that you keep through e-mail, instant messaging and chat. That left it;very personal and intimate actions that nothing have to do with what you are doing in your home or at your company. Skirmishes, talks little rise special tone and amiguit@s that are far from mere checking if your children visit pornographic sites or if your employees access social applications during working time.
That your son is less not justifies or entitles you to read his personal communications;they are so guaranteed their right to privacy as any major.
How can you spy?
By installing a Keylogger, that records all the keystrokes and, depending on their technical specifications, any process that you run on the computer. Spy there is also software for mobile phones or devices with GPS Service.
You will not be detected at a glance
The Spy will not want to leave footprints. They are sophisticated and stealthy. They are to control what you do on your computer. This type of programs stored all the keystrokes keyboard, keys and pages visited on the Internet unless you give it. Some even take screenshots and send by email the information collecting.
If the software spy it installed on your mobile phone through the SIM card, you can see the content of your conversations, sms and your phone’s phonebook.
They are not good times for rematches
Beware of kits spy “family”. Sale on the Internet does not mean that its use is legitimate.The solution is not to turn spy into spied. Despite its illegality, if you decide to make that dark decision, it can become a “game” addictive and dangerous.
How to discover if someone is spying?
You can have a keylogger installed long unless you’ve noticed it. Playing in the domestic League, it is very likely that at the end you can give with your spyware inexpert @, since sooner or later will leave traces that enable you to detect it.
We will distinguish cases
Before you search for keyloggers, think that if you do not set any kind of physical security to access your computer, or you have the key targeted on a post-it, the Spy is as easy as sitting in front of your screen and start to tangle.
Any operating system has a few logs/records in which scoring is the changes made to the system. Someday your spy will leave physical traces on your computer. All the important actions that take place on a computer, as for example, the start of the session, are recorded in the system. Evidence of completed applications, network resources and processes is also running. This information is saved in different files on your computer, the where depends on the operating system.
It is likely that your spy accessed web applications, so will be key to check the cache(memory of websites that are accessed frequently), the history of search and navigation.
It is also possible to know if connected USB devices or memories to copy / steal data, recover data that you have deleted and your access codes to application changes.
Before you search for and open files to your spy Hunt, you should know that opening any file modified dates of access to them, which prevents to establish exactly what happened on the computer. If you manipulate it at your own risk, you run the serious risk of altering evidence. Whether you are or not an expert user, you will be difficult to check these accesses and records, so it is always advisable that you take it to a computer expert to make him a forensic analysis.
How to know if there is a keylogger or hidden files
If you can examine running processes in memory and execution, you can check if there is something new and unknown running in the background. Taking into account warnings, better than not you make any modifications.
If you’re not going to report the facts, there are anti-keyloggers programs that detect your installation. These programs scan all drives hard disk, removable drives, memory, records, individual folders and monitor all the calls that perform processes with respect to the file system or registry of Windows, so you will alert if there is evidence that our conversations are being captured by means of software. However, it is like everything else, there are no 100% effectiveness.
If you opt for hard disk encryption it is a technique invulnerable but is better that you notes you well the key because as you lose it or forget, you lose the information. There is also a software VPN, which encrypts all your movements on the Internet.
As you can see, alternatives have many but, perhaps, talking to the person that you suspect and establishing a physical security system with a simple password, avoid making detective.
