How the Monitoring Process Works?

The software can be installed by sending an email attachment which contains the installation module. When the target user opens the attachment, the software gets silently installed and the monitoring process will begin.

Deployment is not normally a problem because the small size of module file that be renamed to anything you want and dropped inside a Word, Image or Zip file and sent through many regular email services. This makes the remote installation very easy and stealth. However, if you have physical access to the computer which you want to monitor, you can install it by yourself just like you install any other program. Once you are done with the installation process, you can start monitoring the activities from a remote location.

When you want to view the screen or browse the logged results, simply log in to the “Secure Online Control Panel” (from any browser – IE, Firefox, Chrome etc.) and enter your username and password. This panel allows you to view the screen, perform commands, search the logs or uninstall the software.

You will get a complete step-by-step instruction and technical support after you purchase the software. So, go grab Realtime-Spy to monitor your remote computer now!
