How to Know if Someone Accessed My Computer When I am Away

Do you have a feeling that someone tried to access your computer when you stepped out for a lunch or quick coffee break? Perhaps your colleague or the person sitting in the next desk tried to log in or play something wicked on your computer while you were away for a quick session.

So, how do you know if someone tried to access your computer in your absence? Well, here is a way by which you get notified every time when such an attempt is made.


The website called gives a solution here. All you have to do is visit the site’s homepage, sign in to your Gmail account and select your secret point (unlock code) from the screen. Once you do this, you will have to place your mouse cursor into the slot shown and click on it. This will activate the mouse lock feature on your computer screen.


So, when an unauthorized person tries to move the mouse in your absence, he will be given just a few seconds to select the unlock code. Upon failure to do so, you will get an instant notification about the intrusion in your mailbox.

Email Notification from MouseLock

If you have a webcam attached to your computer, you can even get the photo of the person trying to intrude. This will make it easy for you to figure out who actually was the person.

As this is an easy to use web application, you can use it any time just by loading the MouseLock website without the need to install anything on your computer. Even though MouseLock does not manage to prevent the intrusion, it will give you an instant notification about it, so that you aware of what is happening at your desk when you are away.

How it Works?

MouseLock operates by using the “mouseLeaveEvent” from JQuery to track the mouse movements. On the other hand, it uses the “getUserMedia()” API that is supported by Chrome and Firefox to capture the webcam photographs.

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, terrific blog!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
