Clicking on it will upload all the gathered data to an online server under your account.
Under the input tab, you can see your keyboard heat map. You can see light and warm colors to show what keys were used during a time period. Using the arrow keys will show you input history, applications usage and mouse heat map.
Next up, the network tab shows which application is using/used the network bandwidth, along-with network interfaces, real-time bandwidth usage and bandwidth per country.
Uptime tab shows you your computer’s current uptime, total uptime, longest uptime and average uptime along-with how many times you rebooted it. There’s a reboot calendar and applications activity shown as well.
