How to Tell What Someone is Doing on a Computer Without Looking at the Screen

In this article I will tell you how to tell what someone is doing on a computer without looking at the screen. No, this is not done by using spying software or anything like that. Why bother with spying software when you can easily tell by the click and typing patterns?

Hello, in this article I will tell you how to tell what someone is doing on a computer without looking at the screen. No, this is not done by using spying software or anything like that. Why bother with spying software when you can easily tell by the click and typing patterns? Enjoy!

The first and most easy to detect pattern is a pattern that tells that you the person is typing something long into a world processor. If they are, all they will be doing is typing. If you can hear the constant tapping of the keys with little or no mouse clicks, the person is typing a document or something similar. Pretty simple, huh? Well, there are some more complex ones to come.

This pattern is used to detect if the person is surfing the web or playing games. There will be little or no typing done, but instead quite a few mouse clicks. This indicates that the person is either surfing the web, or playing some sort of computer game. If there are long pauses between clicks, they are probably surfing the internet. However if there are lots of clicks, often very close together, a game is being played.

Heres another easy one: If there is sound turned up and no typing or clicking being done, the person is definitely watching a video. However, if the sound is music and there is clicking/typing being done, they are doing something on the computer (surfing the net or playing a game most likely) while listening to music. They would not be typing a document because you often can’t do things like that while listening to music.

If you can hear someone talking on the computer, and the person using the computer talking, a webcam chat is going on. If there is typing going on as well, this may confuse you. But it is perfectly normal to type-chat at the same time as video-chatting.

Now, you may be wondering: Why would I want to know this? Why can’t I just look at the screen? Well, if the person is a teenager, they may not want you to know what they are doing. So if you come and look at the screen they’ll hide whatever they are doing. If you are a parent the info listed in this article could help tell you if your kids are playing games when you don’t want them to. Without them knowing and without the use of spyware.
