See the fiasco with Koingo’s Data Guardian to understand why no one in their right mind would recommend this company's software.

What fiasco? I've been using Data Guardian for years with no problems. Developer is very responsive to comments, problems, and suggestions.

Marvelous little helper. Works as advertised. Rock stable and reliable.

Only thing missing is iSight motion detection as an event monitor in order to use the Mac as a surveillance unit.

Well I was interested in that and the "incorrect password attempts" event, but you have to actually install the program (not mentioned anywhere) to find out this event has been removed with OS X 10.6 !

Well at least there's a trial period, but the developer should be more transparent and provide upfront a matrix of what is available on what OS X version.

Does it remember even the typed passwords?

No, the Mac OS does not permit this. Plus, this sounds like a rather large security violation if it could.


ok thank you for the info

This could be a great program to help get a stolen Mac back; however, I can't figure out how to get it to email anything-- keep getting "Send Mail error: 22."

This is actually a pretty cool app. Now if we could get a little fat guy to pop up on the screen and wave his finger and say "uh, uh, uh." (Reference first Jurassic Park movie.) It says in the description that you can start a "simulated self destruct." I couldn't find that. You can do a real self destruct, but simulated? I think it would be pretty cool to see a simulated one. Maybe one that shows a lot of stuff melting down or what-have-you like on TV, then blacken the screen and lock it out. Scare the heck out of your kids/spouse!

Some things I would change is ability to keep taking pictures every x seconds until you disable the monitor. Also, once you turn off a monitor - say you type in a correct password in the destruct sequence, you have an option of disabling the monitor until you turn it on again. So if you have the monitor looking for a mouse movement, you don't have it going off while you are trying to turn the monitor off.

A great 1.0 app!

Looks interesting, and promising....one thing I cannot locate (if it is an option) is where I want screenshots or pictures taken to be stored.....would be a very nice feature if not already there. Still haven't found the pics.......off to test some more....
