Realtime-Spy supports two types of installation: Remote and Local. Remote installation creates a remotely deployable module that gets installed on a remote computer through email. Thereafter you can control all the activities of the remote PC from your own place of comfort. Just like any other software program, it can also be installed on a local computer.

The software runs in a total stealth mode. That means, it hides itself from programs folder, add/remove programs and task manager, so that it does not arouse suspicion in the minds of users who are being monitored.

Realtime-Spy records every keystroke typed on the computer’s keyboard including all types passwords. It captures screenshots, records chat conversation and keeps track of web and social media activity.
