Watchmac1.7

07 August 2012

Monitors your Mac for possible security infringements.

Overview

Watchmac monitors your Mac for possible security infringements.

Your Mac can already stop unwanted access out of the box. Sometimes it is desirable, however, to know when someone tries to circumvent these measures. This is where Watchmac comes into play.

Watchmac monitors your Mac for possible infringements. For instance, when someone tries to unlock your screensaver but fails to enter the correct password, Watchmac will record this event and can even take pictures using the built-in (or an externally connected iSight). Best of all, Watchmac can even send you an email alerting you about the infringement.

And remember: Some intruders are even in the family. Even though you probably wouldn't count your children among them, Watchmac is nevertheless a great tool for detecting when your children don't play by the rules.

Watchmac is featured on the Macbundler August bundle: Get 7 great apps for just $39 that's 88% off! Check out http://bloo7.com/macbundler for more info.

While Watchmac 1.5.1r2 crashes immediately on my MacBook Pro C2D w/ OS 10.5.8, version 1.5.2 prerelease mentioned in the developer's comment, below, does work fine for me. The Watchmac 1.5.1r2 crash notwithstanding, Watchmac is a finely crafted security app. which otherwise works quite well. I've found its developer easily accessible and very responsive to queries and issues.

-- Crashes on launch, every time. Reverting back to version 1.4.3 eliminates the crashing. Mac OS X 10.5.8, Mac Mini 2009.

Works nicely. I had big problems with Lookdown (had to ssh into my own machine and kill the process to be able to login again...) This software could still use a few more triggers, most importantly a "MagSafe plugged" one. Still, works great.
