What a Mom Wants: Webwatcher Computer Monitoring & Key Logging Software Review & GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

A mom wants her children to be safe…

webwatcher-coupons

Our children and teenagers are growing up in a completely different world than we did as children. They are now spending countless hours browsing and “messing around” in cyber world. We can no longer peek out the window to see who they are interacting with and if we try to look over their shoulder… we get shut out.

That’s why when Webwatcher contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in a review I agreed. Webwatcher is a computer monitoring and key logging software that you install on the target computer. The beauty of this product is nothing is stored on the target computer… so it doesn’t bog down or act differently. There is no way to tell it is running… it doesn’t even show up in the task manager! I can log onto the Webwatcher website from any computer anywhere and monitor any and all activity that I previously selected.

secretly monitor You can set the program to record with certain “alert” or “trigger” words. How many teenage suicides might have been prevented if someone had been able to see what that child had been Googling or even chatting/Skyping? Worried about drugs? Set that as an alert/trigger word.

Did I mention the program is super easy to use. Here you can see that I have selected to view the searches performed on the target computer. It then pulls them up… view and then delete.

Webwatcher has other cool features as well. You can set it to take screenshots started by an “alert” or “trigger”. It will take screen shots of what is on the target computer’s screen and when you view it… it’s like standing over the operators shoulder. Does your child have a laptop? You can still monitor their activity… from anywhere.

My teenage son has been “hiding” up in his room more often than we like, so we decided to take a peek at his computer activity (secretively… shhh!). We are happy to report there is nothing abnormal going on and we even gained a little insight. We have also set up another feature that he hasn’t caught on to. We have set up his computer so that all internet activity shuts down at midnight. Genius, right? You can set it to not allow visits to particular websites or programs. Do you have younger children that want to use the computer? You set it to only allow visits to particular sites making the internet a child safe zone.

Webwatcher was so easy to install and use. We are no longer in the dark and now we have peace of mind. I would highly recommend this software for any parent concerned about their children and cyber world.

NEW! WebWatcher – is now able to track all SMS messages sent to and from Android devices. WebWatcher Mobile already has BlackBerry monitoring capabilities and the Company plans to launch WebWatcher Mobile for iPhone devices later this year.

WebWatcher Mobile is easy to install and parents are able to monitor all of their children’s SMS messaging activity whether it be on a computer, laptop or Smartphone through one interface.

So, now I know you want it… right?

    I leared that they offer Interguard which provides Laptop Recovery. I admit I could use that at times. UGH.
