Parental Control Software allows you to limit and control the time your children spend on the computer, access the Internet or play games. Child monitoring software also helps you to block inappropriate Internet content, prevents overuse and allows you to balance your child’s day. The combinations is endless! Mix and match the time, duration and program options for each child and create the schedules that suit your family’s needs. Parental control software helps you take command over the time and activity your children spend on the computer and Internet.
No matter the age or the individual you’re considering monitoring, no matter how "good" they may be, no matter how "good" their friends may be, kids and adults alike are exposed to various threats and temptations online. Internet activity monitoring software (sometimes called parental controls), is the only sane way to know what's going on and for parents to give kids some freedom to explore online, for adults to find out what their spouse or significant other may be up to, for employers to help ensure employees adhere to company guidelines (and aren't abusing company resources).
For many people using internet activity monitoring software isn't even about trusting the individuals themselves in many cases so much as it is about not trusting the creeps and other threats and temptations online. The concern of wanting others to feel like they're trusted must always be counterbalanced by the very real need to keep those individuals you're monitoring--and yourself--safe.
The dangers of cyberspace cross age, ethnic, and social lines: young kids may be stumbling upon sites with highly inappropriate content, spouses and individuals being unfaithful to their partner. Whatever the case, internet monitoring software can shed light on these things help put you back in the driver's seat. The knowledge of these events and activities is what's key here. In our eyes it’s much like having good antivirus software: “The knowing vs. the not knowing makes all the difference.”
