What is LockItTight?

LockItTight (LiT for short) provides computer tracking and monitoring services for theft recovery assistance and parental control purpose.

After you sign up, and install the client software on your computer, the client software will consistently report locations, screen captures, webcam shots, key logs, clipboard messages, and browser history from your computer to the servers of LockItTight.com. You can access the information reported by your protected computer from anywhere on any computer.

You may also retrieve and delete files on the monitored computer remotely from another computer. For Android phones, you get location tracking, call and text logging, and browser history reports.

How much does it cost?

There is a basic service available for everyone, free of charge. We have also introduced paid services with more devices per user, more features, higher report frequency and capture image size. Please review the details if you need these services with higher reporting frequency and quality.

What is the LockItTight tray icon for?

The tray icon [] on the Windows task bar and on the Android status bar shows that LockItTight client is running. It also prevents abusive anonymous usage of the software to spy on a legitimate computer user without his or her knowledge.

There are however cases where stealth mode monitoring is both legitimate and useful, one such usage is parental monitoring.

Currently only paid users with verified identify have the option to hide the tray icon (on the device settings page on the server). We have parents turning the icon off, and we have parents leaving it on letting the kids know they are being monitored for mutual trust.

Free user's identity can't be verified and as a result the tray icon is always displayed.

Can I hide app icon on Android?

No, the app icon in the app list/drawer can not be hidden. The notice in the top notification bar can be hidden by paid users only.

Why is my location not accurate?

When wifi is not available on the computer, turned off, or the surrounding wi-fi signals are insufficient, the positioning method falls back to IP geo-mapping, which is much less accurate.

We use Skyhook’s WPS (WiFi Positioning System) for locating the computers. The coverage of Skyhook WPS is usually very accurate in most part of North America, Europe, Australia and parts of Asia. Skyhook is constantly improving their geo-mapping database for other areas in the world. However, it’s a huge task and it takes time.

If your area does not have good Shyhook coverage, even if you have wi-fi signals, you may not get accurate location, since the location of the wi-fi routers may not be available for the calculation. You can check the wi-fi coverage in your area here.

A quicker way to improve the accuracy now is to submit the location of your wi-fi access points to Skyhook. This would benefit all who uses Skyhook for location based applications including LockItTight. The more people submit locations, the more accurate the locations will be for that area.
