Frequently Asked Questions

How to know if someone has been using my PC/check who logged in my PC?

There are a few methods you can employ to verify if someone has been using your PC, and these include both built-in system checks and FlexiSPY.

For Windows systems, you can use the Event Viewer to check your PC user log:

  1. Type "Event Viewer" into the search box and open the Event Viewer app.
  2. Expand the Windows Logs section and select Security.
  3. Within the Security logs, open all the events with Event ID 4624 or 4648. Look for entries with Logon Type = 2 and the Account Name reflecting the username of a user (not SYSTEM, NETWORK SERVICE, etc.).
  4. View the Logged time to see the login time and date of the user.
  5. To view logout times, check the events with Event ID 4647.

This method allows you to track the login and logout events on your PC. However, it can be a bit tedious to navigate through system logs, especially if there are many entries.

Alternatively, FlexiSPY provides a more streamlined and comprehensive approach to tracking PC user logs.

It offers a detailed record of every login and logout event on your computer. By viewing this log, you can identify who logged into your PC, including the date and time of each event. Furthermore, it captures screen lock and unlock events, detects remote logins, and allows you to filter and favorite specific login events for quick reference. This information is easily accessible from your secure online dashboard or our unique mobile portal viewer app.

How to tell if someone was using your Mac?

You have a couple of options to check if someone has been using your Mac - either by using the built-in Terminal application or FlexiSPY computer monitoring software

If you're comfortable using the Terminal:

  1. Open the Terminal on your Mac.
  2. Type in `last` and press Enter.

This command will list all the login events with your account username and the exact login time. It includes the history of your Mac being restarted or shut down. From this information, you can infer if someone else may have logged into your Mac without your knowledge.

While the Terminal method is effective, it only offers raw data, which can be difficult to sift through, especially in cases where there are numerous login events. Moreover, it lacks the ability to capture remote logins, filter events, or mark specific logins for reference later.

In contrast, FlexiSPY offers a more comprehensive solution. Along with the basic login and logout events, it detects remote logins and allows you to filter and favorite specific login events. This feature provides you with an easy-to-understand and organized login history, viewable from your secure online dashboard or our unique mobile portal viewer app.

By using FlexiSPY, you can effortlessly keep track of your Mac's login history, ensuring no unauthorized access goes unnoticed.

How to check computer login history on Windows 10/11?

There are a couple of ways to check the computer login history on Windows 10/11 - either by using the built-in Event Viewer or using FlexiSPY's Computer Login History feature.

If you prefer to use the built-in Event Viewer:

  1. Search for 'Event Viewer' in the search box and open the app.
  2. Expand 'Windows Logs' and select 'Security'.
  3. In 'Security' logs, look for events with Event ID 4624 or 4648. These events show the login times. For each event, make sure 'Logon Type' equals '2' and 'Account Name' displays the username of the user, not 'SYSTEM', 'NETWORK SERVICE', etc.
  4. To see the logout times of a user, look for events with Event ID 4647.
  5. For each relevant event, view the 'Logged' time to see the login or logout time and date.

While the Event Viewer method is built into Windows, it can be technical and cumbersome for some users. If you're seeking a simpler and more efficient approach, we recommend using FlexiSPY.

With FlexiSPY, you get an easy-to-understand log of all login and logout events, including remote logins and screen lock/unlock events. This information can be accessed conveniently from your secure online dashboard or our unique mobile portal viewer app. FlexiSPY simplifies the process of tracking login history, providing a user-friendly alternative to the traditional method.
