| | Spy Gear & Technology Questions
I've decided to hack into my (prob.) WH's computer. I considered a Voice Activated Recorder in his car but (a) he takes suspicious calls outside on walks, a lot, and not so much into his car, and (b) he's always on the phone in the car or has the radio going, and I could spend a lot of time and battery juice listening to nothing.
No, the real place of evil is his computer. Don't ask me how I know -- it's a hundred little things. There's a Spanish saying: "A woman always feels the shadow of another woman." Well, this shadow falls squarely on his computer, specifically his internet browser.
So a few questions for the technically savvy: WH keeps his MacBookPro computer locked tight and password protected, in his own office area in our home. I thought first I might get a spy-cam so I can learn his password, and then install keylogger software. What do you think of that plan? And....
(1) How close would the camera have to be so that the keystrokes would be recognizable?
(2) He knows exactly what is in his area and exactly where it is -- it's not like I can put a teddy-bear in his office without him noticing. Even a "pen" would not work so well unless I hid it somehow -- his pens aren't in a place where they could see his keyboard. All the spy-cams I see on the web come already embedded in another object. Ideally I'd like to find a tiny camera that I could mount myself in/behind something already in my husband's office, like behind a picture frame or a light bulb. (I'm fairly handy.) Any ideas?
(3) Will motion-activated cameras work if they are behind a glass door on a cabinet? That would make things much easier but if not I can go either with a different location or a non-motion-activated camera. (Just it will take longer, because I don't always know or have access right before he uses the computer, and batteries run out after a couple hours.)
(4) Assuming it works, can anyone recommend a keylogger program for a Mac? Everything I see on the web is for a PC.
Thank you all SO much for your help and advice!!
Edited to add: Any and all suggestions will be ABSOLUTELY welcome! I'm just trying to open this idea to other, better minds! I don't expect gospel, just hoping for ideas towards a strategy!! Thank you SO SO much for any comments and advice!
