IamBigBrother Parental Control Software Review
IamBigBrother Parental Control Software can help you provide parental controls to your children's online experience with the following key features of the software:
- It can monitor all websites that your children visits.
- Can monitor social networking sites.
- Has a keylogging feature that can monitor passwords and usernames of your children from different social networking sites.
- It can monitor chat conversations from popular Instant Message softwares and Social Networking sites.
- Can efficiently records sent and received email with or without attachments.
- Screenshot feature can be triggered both in a timely and keyword-trigger screen shot manner.
- Has remote monitoring feature where you can check real time reports anywhere if you pay more with IamBigBrother Remote software.
- Has stable Stealth feature that will allow you to monitor your kids activities undetected.
Installing IamBigBrother software can help you protect and monitor your children’s daily internet activities. It can monitor all visited websites, check IM conversations and religiously record all sent and received emails. However, its downfall features unlike all other parental software in the market is it doesn’t have any blocking system feature.
You can only monitor everything your children are doing but you can’t do anything about it. You can’t block unwanted sites neither can you block your kids malicious friends. You won’t also know what time and how long they have stayed on certain websites.
One thing that the software needs to improve on is to have a search engine feature. If your children are too tech savvy and knows how to delete their search engine history then there will be no way for you to find out what other sites have they’ve put interest into.
Although IamBigBrother software can monitor all chat conversations it doesn’t run a fully search operated function. Hence, if you’re a busy mom or dad it might be tedious for you to read all recorded conversations within the day. But most parents think it would be much better to know everything anyways.
Keylogging and Screenshots
Keylogging feature can also be assessed with IamBigBrother. It can save passwords and usernames that your children created from different Social Networking sites. Screen shot features are automatic everytime your children type’s triggered words and statements.
Lets say your child is planning to sneak out to have a drink without you knowing it, pre-set trigger statements such as “drink” or “sneak out” will automatically screen capture the conversation and immediately alert you via email or remote access. However, you need to enter all trigger statements that you can think of and only those statements will be given importance by the software.
IamBigBrother can monitor your children’s activities undetected that are if you don’t have any strong antivirus or antispyware software. But good news is it won’t be seen by your children on either Task Manager or add/remove program list.
Remote access feature can also be enjoyed if you add the IamBigBrother Remote software at an additional cost. Nonetheless, you can still monitor your kid’s activities via email and with the same computer you are monitoring with.
Without a doubt, IamBigBrother software is the most affordable parental control software in the market with its limited features. This software can improve more by adding features such as blocking and filtering websites along with adding computer usage limit. Nonetheless it can be one powerful tool to help any parent monitor their children’s daily internet activities.
