Take a covert picture of whomever wakes up your Mac! Security Camera 2.5 sets up in less than a minute. And once it’s on, nobody can use your Mac without you knowing exactly who it is. Yosemite ready too!

The reviews are in, and people LOVE Security Camera 2.5:
"Brilliant little app!"
"Good idea, been looking for something like this as I know one of my subordinates is known to rummage through my desk in my absence"
"This app is simple and it works brilliantly!"
"now I know who is using my mac… grrr!"

Security Camera is a user-friendly app that can be installed in one minute, and doesn’t require any further configuration. Each time your computer wakes up, the camera will silently snap a picture of the person who wakes it up, and save the photo into a defined folder (the photos are password protected too – only you can view or delete them).

That means with this app installed on your Mac, you will always have time-stamped evidence of who touched your computer without your permission. Intruders will no longer be able to deny invading your privacy – perfect for foiling snoopy co-workers, subordinates, your kids, your roommate – anyone.

Get Security Camera 2.5 today, and you won’t have to worry about someone snooping on your machine without your knowledge – because now you’ll have proof!

• Automatic (and silent/stealth) camera snap after waking up.
• Saves images at a resolution of 640х480.
• Can send pictures to your Dropbox account! So if your laptop gets stolen, you’ll almost certainly have a photo of the thief.

• Password protection - only you can view/copy/delete Captured Photos.

• You can setup Security Camera to arm after 30sec/1min/3min/5min/15min/30min of idle time. When so armed, Security Camera snaps anyone who drags a mouse, touches Multi-Touch trackpad or presses any key.
• Can upload photos to Dropbox, ensuring that even if your Mac is stolen, you’ll have a photo of the thief.
• Ideal for personal use / archiving. Use it to record yourself every day, and see how you’ve changed day to day. Hair, mood, health… how many more cool uses can you think of for this?

Does not work - do not buy

Doesn't recognize there's a camera and never does what it says it will do. Tried contacting the developer and they're not even active anymore so you will have no help troubleshooting. This app needs to be removed from the app store. I'm currently trying to get a refund.

Poorly Programmed / Multiple Major Bugs

Very “buggy” software:

1) While the program takes pictures when the camera wakes up, it also continues to take pictures at random intervals after the computer is unlocked, generating dozens of photos while you work at your computer. You later need to spend time deleting large groups of photos.

2) When you select “quit” from the program menu, the program continues to run in the background with no visible indication that it is running. You will need to “kill” the process using the “Activity Monitor” to shut it down.

3) The “Automatically start Security Camera at login” option cannot be selected (this does not work/no “check” appears in the check box when you select this option).

4) Finally, the “Syncronize Captured Photos with Dropbox” option will become “unchecked” for no apparent reason despite the presence of Dropbox on my computer.

With glaring problems like this, and given that the last update was in February of 2015 (as of today, January, 7, 2016), I would recommend searching for other options. No updates for ~ one year with major bugs in the program is unacceptable for a program that is not free.

Apple, why is this still on the AppStore

I failed to look at the ratings until I purchased an app that does not work. I always thought the app store was pretty reliable, this app is causing Apple App Store to lose credibility. TAKE IT DOWN!
