What is it?

OctoMouse is a free application for MAC OSX that measures your mouse and keyboard activities.

With OctoMouse, you will be able to always keep under your eyes how far did you travel with your mouse/trackpad, how many times did you press a key, how long did you use your computer and so on.

OctoMouse, only for MAC


As most of people, you are concerned about some privacy issues and this is why the application's source code is open. The application does not collect any private information from the user and does not use any network bandwith. It is not a keylogger and only keeps track of the number of times a key was pressed. If you are still concerned about privacy, you can check the source code and build the application by yourself using Xcode.

OctoMouse is Open-Source and available on GitHub!


No icon in the dock, keep your analytics always under your eyes, parameterizable, available in several languages.

Why is the keystrokes counter not working?

For a security reason, OSX prevents any application to detect and retrieve all keyboard inputs that happen outside the application itself. If you want the key pressed counter working, you will need to add OctoMouse in a whitelist. We can't force you to trust our application, but we assure you we don't collect any information from you.

To enable the keystrokes counter feature, make sure this application is added and checked in: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility. You might need to restart the application.
