redpill Agent is using email (Gmail) to send and receive data. Sometimes Gmail will block a Gmail account if they think it is sending spam. If too many emails are being sent from redpill Agent (usually if too many computers are monitored with one account), Gmail will block the email account, causing the redpill Agent account that is linked to that account to stop working.
redpill developed redpill Detective to replace redpill Agent. redpill Detective does not use email to send or receive data. redpill Detective is also better at monitoring multiple computers as you don’t need to go through hundreds of emails to view data. You view all data online in your redpill Detective account (key data as well as a live screen view of the target computer). Like redpill Agent, redpill Detective can be installed remotely and secretly on a computer anywhere in the world.
- redpill will not link your redpill Agent account to another email address if your account is blocked. You purchase redpill Agent on your own risk.
- For redpill Agent we only accept International Wire Transfers or Cash Deposits / EFT’s that are done in South Africa. ( redpill accepts a wide range of payment methods including credit cards for our spy software products)
Getting a username and password with a key logger like redpill Spy or redpill Detective is easy. For this example, we will be using the free key logger of redpill to demonstrate. The other products might look a bit different, but the same principles apply.
To get a username and password, go to the key data section. The first thing to look for is the Window Title. Look for the login title of the Window for the username and password you need. For example, for gmail it will be ‘Gmail: Email from Google’ and for Facebook it will be ‘Welcome to Facebook – Log in, Sign Up or Learn More’
If you are looking for something else, just go to the log in page and have a look at the window title.
Once you have found the section in the key data with the Window Title you are looking for, the username and password should be just below it.
A few things to keep in mind:
The user might not have used TAB to jump from the username box to the password box. If he used his mouse, the username and password will be one word and not separated by [TAB] as in the example above. It should be easy to spot where the username stops and the password begins … if not, use trial-and-error to get the correct username and password.
The user’s web browser might have auto completed the username, so you might only see part of the username. If this is the case, and you don’t know the username, clear the Internet History. Next time the user wants to log in, he will be forced to type the full username and then it will be in the log.
NEW from redpill …
The system has and advanced, configurable, covert install module. All you need to do is email the module to the target.
From your online account that you can access from any computer anywhere in the world, you will be able to select anyone of your computers and then see everything that was typed including usernames and passwords. You will also be able to see a live screen view of what the person is currently doing.
It is also easy to stop monitoring a computer by simply sending the remote uninstall command from your control panel.
This solution is ideal for small businesses who want to monitor employees or private detectives who need to monitor several computers.

Gmail recently started disabling some gmail accounts that they feel are in violation of their user policy. As redpill Agent send a lot of emails using a gmail account, gmail sometimes incorrectly flag these accounts as sending spam and disable them.
You can prevent your account from being closed by not monitoring too many computers with one account.
If your account has been disabled, you have one of two options:
We can link redpill Agent to a new email address. We will only do this once for each customer as you usually need to purchase another license for another gmail address. Unfortunately you will need to install again. You will also need to make sure you don’t monitor too many computers as gmail might disabled your account again (The number of computer will depend on how much work is done on each computer).
If you choose option 1, please email us the new email address you want to use and the old email address and password of the account that is disabled (we will first confirm that it is disabled).
Note, if you go for option 1, the offer in option 2 will not apply to you.
You can convert to redpill Detective. redpill Detective is a superior product. The install application can bypass more anti-virus packages and two-way firewalls. It can also be remotely installed. It does not use gmail or any other email service. Data is viewed directly from your redpill account and there is even a live screen view. As data is stored on our server, we require a subscription payment instead of a once off payment. We will offer a 30% discount for all redpill Agent customers for their first year subscription for one computer.
If you want to go for option 2, please contact us so that we can arrange for your account to be converted.

redpill Agent was spy software that could be installed remotely. It was possible to remotely install the computer monitoring software, anywhere in the world, without the owner’s knowledge.
Unfortunately, it turned out, that this was too much power for some. We received reports that redpill Agent was being used illegally and maliciously. We also became aware of cases where redpill Agent was used to steal credit card information.
We (redpill) have decided to stop all sales of redpill Agent.
Our existing redpill Agent customers will still be able to log in and use the system but we will not create any new licenses. Existing customers can go to http://www.redpill.co.za and click on redpill Agent in the menu. They will be able to log in with the link at the bottom of the page.

Check it out ….
redpill Spy is a commonly used spy program because it has a free edition that does not expire and the free edition is also completely hidden. We get many requests from people who want to know if someone else is using redpill Spy on them.
There is no quick way to check if redpill Spy is installed. The program name, location and even behavior will be different for each installation. This is done to prevent detection.
There are some tools available from redpill to check if redpill Spy is installed and to check the status of the program, but this is only available to paying customers (the same also applies to redpill Agent).
What can someone do that is not a redpill customer?
You will not be able to tell if redpill Spy is currently installed but you can do the following:
- Remove it if it’s currently installed (even though you will not know if it was installed or not).
- ‘Be notified’ of the possibility that someone else installed it.
You do this by simply installing the free edition. When installing redpill Spy, it will automatically remove any current installations. You then change the default password to something only you will know. As long as you can open it using your password, you will know that there is no other instance of redpill Spy running on your computer and no one will be able to view the data except you.
How can you be sure that someone isn’t using another spy program on your computer?
Anti-virus software will detect most spy programs … but not all. You can make sure no one is using a spy program on your computer by upgrading to the Basic edition of redpill Spy (the free edition will only show you some of the data). You will then be able to see everything that was done on your computer when you are not there. So you will know if someone else installed or used (open to view the data) another spy program on your computer.
