WebWatcher is developed and owned by Awareness Technologies, a privately held software company based in L.A. It started out in 2002 making software tools for national intelligence agencies, but then switched gears to focus more on businesses and consumers. Their customers include Cabinet-level agencies in the US, schools, law enforcement, and hospital. Best of all, the same level of protection is offered to mom’s like us who want to look out for their families and protect their kids from the dangers of the internet.
I was looking forward to testing out this program and finding all the horrible things my 12-year-old was doing. Thankfully, I didn’t find much, but when my 8-year-old turns 12 I am in trouble! This program was extremely easy to use and the customer support was awesome. If I ever have questions about anything, there is always someone you can call and 24 hour support online. I also liked how customizable it was. You can choose your own words to flag, which programs to monitor, and completely block out whatever websites you want. The screenshot feature was really cool. It takes a snapshot of everything your child clicks on or types. It was also very neat that you can monitor everything that goes on from any computer. Overall, this is a great program to use to make sure your child’s computer usage is appropriate. Hopefully it won’t reveal too much but if it does, you will be thankful you had it.
This product can be downloaded online at WebWatcher and retails for $97.
