The idea of a tool tracking your desktop activities can be a little daunting. Rest assured that the Memory Tracker app for macOS or Windows does not have full access to everything that is going on inside your computer; it can only capture basic information about the applications or websites you use. 

The Memory Tracker works by reading window titles that have been active for at least 2 minutes. Let's say you have Google Chrome active on a website, it will send the current window title together with a timestamp with some detail about your activity, such as the website or file name. 

It will show up on your Memory Inbox like this -

Please note that the Memory tracker does not track websites when viewed in Google Chrome's private/incognito mode.

Turning the Tracker Off/On

Windows users need to open the system tray and click the pink Memory brain icon to reveal the tracker window.
