Keep An Eye - App Review

You know the scenario; you pop out of the office and someone decides to snoop at your computer screen. This App will notify you of various actions that might be made.

Now for the ACIDS test:

After downloading the App ensure that notifications are turned on.

You then need to go to on your computer and scan the QR code from within the App. To get there you need to click the icon at the top left of the screen and also make sure your mouse cursor is within the circle on the screen (a green tick will appear... don't follow the instructions and 'rest your mouse inside the circle').

Your iOS device will now receive messages such as 'Browser Window Switched' or 'Mouse Moved'.

The App Costs a nominal $1.

This perhaps more of a 'threat' than a serious security option. If you need to protect your information then, that is what you need to do, not just be made aware that someone has touched your computer.

The App relies on activity; someone just looking at your screen will, of course, not be detected.

The App needs to have push notifications turned on to function.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Possibly more of a toy than a tool but, still interesting.
