Pc Pandora is very easy to install and use for novice computer users.

Doesn't support time management feature and hence lacks the ability to schedule PC users.

The Verdict:

PC Pandora is perfect for novice users looking for an easy to use program with basic set of features. However, for advanced features like "real-time monitoring" and "time management" you will have to look for an alternative.

PC Pandora is a very popular parental control software due to its simple design and operational feasibility. The parent can choose the install and run the software on the target device with or without the stealth mode. However, if one chooses stealth mode he’d have to configure the software to prevent from being detected by antivirus programs. One license of PC Pandora allows the user to install the software on two machines. All the upgrades and support are free for a year.

PC Pandora monitors and records all the emails. It also keeps track of Instant Messaging activities and chats. All the websites visited by the child are captured for the review of the parent. Using its keylogging feature, parent can easily record all the keystrokes made by the child, be it on a chatting activity or a search performed on the search engine or other tools. The parent has option to exclude a particular individual user from being monitored.

The software also provides instant web filtering ability, which enables the parent to disable a particular site to prevent getting accessed on the target device. PC Pandora records detailed bandwidth activity. Using webcam, the target device can be used to capture the photos without the knowledge of the child. It records P2P and file sharing activities. The reports are sent periodically to the parent via email to parent’s online account.

The product has a decent support through email or reference material and other resources on their website like video tutorials, user manuals and FAQs. However, there is no phone or live chat option available yet.


The product comes with multiple options making it feasible for various nature of monitoring. It has a rich set of recording and controlling features for an affordable price. However, for advanced features like real-time monitoring, keyword blocking and remote reboot you’d need high end products.
