If you have installed Elite Keylogger for Mac in a situation where you don’t want other users of the computer to know that monitoring is taking place, be sure to take the following precautions:
1. Disable Anti-Virus: Understand how to disable any anti-virus or anti-spyware program (if any) installed on your Mac and always disable it before unhiding Elite Keylogger. Failure to disable this software first is likely to result in Elite Keylogger being detected as a threat the moment it is unhidden.
2. Always Re-Hide: When you are done accessing Elite Keylogger, be sure to click the “X” in the upper-left corner of the Keylogger window to hide the program. The program is not hidden until the icon on the menu bar disappears.
3. Re-Enable Anti-Virus: Be sure to re-enable the virus software (if any) when you are done.
4. Keep Log Size Small: Large log files that take up a lot of space on the hard drive are easier for a user to detect. Keep your log files small by using the log settings.
5. Keep Elite Keylogger Updated: Anti-virus programs are constantly updating their software with new ways to detect hidden programs. While this is less of an issue with Macs, it still happens. Follow Elite Keylogger’s blog to stay updated on the latest releases and be sure to install updates promptly. As of version 1.4, Elite Keylogger for Mac will notify you that a new version is available when you unhide the app, and it will send you a notification via email if you have logs emailed to you.
6. Use An Anonymous Email Address: If you have the logs emailed, use an email address that can’t be linked immediately to you and don’t save the emails and/or emailed log files anywhere they might be found by other users of your computer.
