Software that records chat & internet access

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to find a good piece of software that will record what my daughter does on the net.

I need it to record messenger, chatrooms and internet access.

I've previously used net nanny but looking for something a bit more
.

Anything that anyone would recommend would be great as there doesn't appear to be much on a google search.

Thanks

If it is msn messenger then there is an option to automatically keep records of conversations which will save all conversations as text files.

Web browsing info can be found in the browsers history. But that is easily deleted.

There are quite a lot of programs that will monitor things a lot better and record pretty much all computer activity - but some don't come cheap
I'd be very cautious when using software like this though. Make sure it is a well knonw or comes recommended as some will record keystrokes which could in turn give people some of your personal information you may not want to share - bank details etc

Is there a specific reason you want to record computer usage?
You could ensure the PC is in a family room where you can keep an eye on the PC when they are using it and also tell them what you see as acceptable usage and warn them of some of the dangers of the internet.

Might want to check out webWatcher - http://monitoringsoftwarereviews.org/reviews/webwatcher.html as it seems to get a decent review and does most of what I think you are after.

Thanks Iceman - that looks exactly what I'm looking for.

She deletes her browsing history and knows how to turn chat logs off.

Computer is already in 'Family Room' but I'm often away on Business and her Gran or Step Dad don't really have a clue and can't see why I'm concerned about it.

It's more for her own safety - as although very smart with PC's she is very naive in other ways and beleives everything everyone says!

I appreciate your concern katrb ..I'm sure we all strive to educate our children about the dangers of internet messaging, chat rooms etc but some are prone to be more susceptible to the motives of some of the morons who roam these sites looking for easy targets.

You can never be too careful and I wish you every success.

You could also consider installing a keylogger. There are lots of them about including free ones.

It will record every keystroke made on the computer. Obviously this has limitations in that it wont show what other people are syaing etc. but as an added extra to any other form of monitoring it's cheap and cheerful.

How about this?

i understand your concerns and i guess it depends on the age of your daughter but isn't it an invasion of privacy to be keeping a log of all her chats, what sites she visits and everything she types? maybe i'll understand more when i'm a parent lol :giggle:

Thanks for your replies!

The software has the ability to narrow down what it alerts you on by keywords - so I wouldn't be reading EVERYTHING she does. I'm just trying to keep her safe.

I've been in www world of chat rooms and messenger - and I'm aware of how faceless and dangerous it can be for kids.

Poppy did you have a link for something?
