SniperSpy now includes a feature called "Show Icon and Notification" for Windows and Mac versions. This feature allows you to decide whether or not to show the icon and notification to your child. This new feature can be found in the Security Settings of the application.
To use this new feature you will need to upgrade your installation to the latest version.
Step 1. To upgrade, go inside the application interface of your previous version. Then go to Security Settings > Uninstall and select to uninstall the software.
Step 2. After the software is uninstalled, log in to your SniperSpy account online and go to Downloads. Then download the latest version from there and install again to the computer you own and have proper consent to monitor.
Step 3. After installation, reboot your computer. Then click the icon for SniperSpy and enter your username and password. The "Show Icon and Notification" feature is turned ON by default. To change it, go to Security Settings.
