Technical Details

Monitoring-tools are programs that allow a user to monitor the activities taking place on a computer system where the software is installed. Monitoring may either be done in real time, or the data may be logged in a file for later retrieval.

The legality of using a monitoring-tool can vary widely depending on the laws of the country and specific details of how it is used. For example, use of a monitoring-tool in the workplace may be considered legal depending on the national legislation and workplace guidelines applicable to that business environment.

In a malicious context, monitoring-tools may be installed onto a device by trojans and spyware.
