Now you can be alerted immediately when your child steps outside the boundaries of safe surfing. KidsWatch will automatically send you e-mail alerts when your child enters a suspect phrase or keyword from any chat and instant message conversation.
For example, if your child is having an instant messenger conversation and the keyword DRUGS is part of that conversation, an e-mail can be sent out to alert you. The email will include an excerpt from the chat conversation so you can see the whole meaning for how the word was used and our chat reports provide transcripts of the entire conversation.
The day you install KidsWatch, you are immediately armed with several thousand suspect words or phases which are updated on a regular basis and you can add as many of your keywords as you like. Our e-mail alert can also notify you when attempts are made to access blocked or restricted websites.
Protecting Your Family from Potential Dangers
Another all too common example of how KidsWatch email alerts can be used is to notify you when your child is giving out personal information. Imagine your kids freely giving out:
- Their full names
- Your home address
- Your home phone number
- Other family e-mail addresses
With KidsWatch, you are immediately notified and you can make your own decision as to the importance of the event because you will see the actual conversation, how this information was given, and to whom it was given.
KidsWatch has a robust reporting feature which enables parents to review the following:
- The websites your children visit.
- The programs they use.
- The time and date they were active on the computer.
- Online chat and instant message dialogs.
You can generate your own reports on demand or configure scheduled reports that can be received via email on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. If you are concerned that a child might be attempting to access a restricted website, you can use the E-Mail Alerts feature to send you an instant e-mail if your child attempts to bypass your restrictions.
