USB Snoop Stick

by

snoop-stickDo you wonder what people are always up to on your computer whenever you are not around? The USB Snoop Stick comes in handy then, as long as you leave it plugged in discreetly. We would say that this works best when you’re running a desktop (a notebook would be wayyyy to obvious), especially when this is a machine that is nestled away in a dusty corner of your cubicle with a mess of wires providing enough coverage.

All that’s required is to slot the Snoop Stick into a USB port and run the installation program that appears. To remotely monitor your PC, all you need to then to is to insert that same SnoopStick in any Internet-capable computer’s USB port and choose “Connect and View Remote Activity.” The SnoopStick will then start displaying what the computer is accessing on the web, or any IM conversations, as well as email activity and software used. You can also download and view the activity logs that the Snoop Stick software has recorded. Snoop Stick can also take screenshots automatically at pre-set intervals, or whenever websites are accessed. You can also send messages to anyone using the computer, and you can also remotely cut off Internet access, log off all users, or shut down the computer. It’s also possible to set up the Snoop Stick to watch out for certain key words or to monitor when specific websites are being accessed.

Sounds like the perfect covert device, eh? The USB Snoop Stick is the right device for folks who want to know what their kids are up to with the computer, and is legal where private investigators or law enforcement activity are concerned. Expect to fork out £74.95 for this puppy.

How do you know it’s not *also* allowing someone *else* to monitor the computer, too?

But what does the Snoopstick do? All of those features can be accomplished using software. Whywould I want or need to have an over USB dongle withtjeword”Snoopstick” written on it for anyone toreadand then Google?

Waste of money.

This device has limited value as noted by Scott F, given that you can achieve the same results with much less obvious software. Why pay for something like this when you could homebrew a similar stick with opensource tools?

@ Kelvyn, not everyone is smart enough to know how to homebrew.
I like the look of it :)
