Exactly what I need, and it is one of the first things I install on any new system. I can't recall how many times this unobtrusive, kernel-resident program has helped me back-track on stuff I've done. Five stars for everything except 4 for ease of use... personally I'd say 5 here too, but I realise others may not be so comfortable at the command line.

Oh, and *respect the privacy of others*. When someone borrows one of our machines I am always upfront about this program's presence. They then can decide if they trust me not to snoop.

...so no one is going to answer my question? That pretty much gives me an idea of the level of customer care to expect. There are so many other options out there. ThT said, I'll pass. Thanks, but no thanks

Hello there, Support!

I am considering purchasing this software as my GO-TO key logger for my home.

Does the free trial offer password logging as well?

And for every user on my home computer (there are only two users here)?

Also, will I be able to monitor the other user without being detected?

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your prompt response.

Very Respectfully,

~KM

I always used logkext on my OS 10.6, but now I updated to 10.8 and after giving my administrator password i get the following: sudo: logKextClient: command not found.

Is it possible to use it for 10.8 or can i solve this problem? Thanks for your help in advance.

THE keylogger for Mac operating system. Unlike other (even paid) alternatives it records every keystroke, even the Passwords. Works great on OS X "Lion" 10.7.5. Well recommended!

Does what it says on the tin, no bloat. Works under 10.8.

I use it only to record my keystrokes.

I've been using logkext for a couple of years and it does a good job. Exactly what I need, nothing extra. It's saved my butt countless times... from retrieving a lost email or letter to remembering a password from a month ago that I typed wrong and would have been otherwise irretrievable. The only thing I'd like to have (but can't) is an easier way to get to the documentation/help, but that's part of the system so I don't know if that could be overcome in the program itself. Good app with no extra BS.

logKext is a very fine piece of software. It is opensource and working very efficiently.

Hi, I'd like to know if you can install logKext 2.2 on Leopard 10.5.2 without admin access, but access to the Terminal. Thanks.

No. There wouldn't be much of a reason to have administrator account's if standard users could install kernel extensions.

Okay, so I don't understand this.
I tried doing what fred suggested about adding a password to my admin, but I already had a password it just never prompted unless I was installing something... so I tried changing my admin password to "daemon" so I would remember it.. now here I have the following:

Last login: Wed Jul 22 12:55:00 on console
Macintosh-2:~ Alex$ sudo logKexclient
Password:

Installed 2.3. When I went to terminal it said Error:logKext Preferences cannot be found. Is logKextDaemon running?

(after "sudu logKentClient" and password were entered)

Uninstalled and tried it again, and also on another mac, same result.

Running on a intel mac OS 10.5.8.

Any ideas?

Help Please

logKext is working for me. I just want to know how to erase its memory. At some point the computer is going to run out. (not in the near future, but....)

solution for password problem with logKext 2.2 on leopard :

I have the same problem but i ve found a great solution :

logKext doesnt work if the admin have no password (blank)

just create another admin account with now a password

open teminal and follow the instructions

type : sudo logKextclient
password : (your new admin password)
logKext password : logKext

type "open"

wait and read :)

after .. delete the new account if you want

sorry for my english friends

Actually, I believe the issue is that the command "sudo" on Leopard does not support accounts with a password.
