‘Rewind AI’ records everything you do on your Mac

We do a lot on our computers every day, and while apps like web browsers let you keep track of your browsing history, there’s no easy way to go back in time to check something you’ve been working on—until now. Rewind AI has announced a new app that records everything you do on your Mac so you can refresh your memory whenever you want.

A new way to rewind what you’re doing on your Mac

As the name suggests, Rewind AI records absolutely everything you’ve seen, said or heard using your Mac. With these recordings, users can easily return at a specific time of day to watch it again. But the app does a lot more than save a long screen recording.

Not much is known about the app’s technology, but the company’s website says it uses “mind-boggling compression” that can record massive amounts of data without significant quality loss. The developers claim that a 10.5GB recording becomes a 2.8MB file. This allows Rewind AI to “keep track of years”.

The app also uses OCR to identify textual content combined with speech recognition to provide powerful search capabilities. In a short demo video shared by the company, we can see that the app interface has a search bar where users can go back to a specific time of day by simply typing in a word or phrase.

Interestingly, Rewind AI was created for Macs with Apple Silicon chips. This is because it uses special features of the Apple SoC to record everything without excessive use of system resources such as CPU and RAM. “It feels virtually invisible,” says the app’s website.


Privacy concerns

However, there are many privacy concerns with an app that logs everything users do on their computers. The Rewind AI website says recordings are stored locally and the app has no cloud integration. Users can also delete recordings at any time, as well as exclude specific apps from recordings.

However ArsTechnica notes that there are many other situations that can put users at risk. This includes potential abuse by bosses, law enforcement and repressive governments. Not to mention the legal issues of recording sensitive information or potentially leaking data.

There is no word on when Rewind AI will be released to the public. Those interested in trying out the platform can sign up on the company’s website. Would you use such software? Let us know in the comments below.
