Monitoring: Comparison Chart

SpyAgent enables the user with very comprehensive set of tools that grants complete clarity on every speck of details on your child’s online activity. The software records the information on the sites visited, conversations on the chat services, online searches performed and files uploaded or downloaded on the web. It also monitors and records the total idle time and active time on the web. The e-mail accounts setup on mail applications like Outlook or on the web are screened by this software. The detailed reports of all the recordings are sent to the user.

SpyAgent keeps a close watch on all the applications running on the target device. All types of internet connections made are documented. At times, parents would want to know the print jobs stored and performed by the child in their absence, this also is possible through SpyAgent. While the keystrokes are recorded by Keylogger, the mouse-clicks and Windows opened are recorded in the same manner.

Filtering & Blocking: 8.0/10

Filtering: Comparison Chart

The software allows various controls to filter and block the unwanted contents. The parent may make categories of sites and block the ones which are not needed or dangerous. The violent and provocative fashion is deliberately deployed in games and other entertainment oriented applications. Such applications can be blocked from running at all on the target device.

The sites can also be filtered before being innocuously opened by children. In case, if the child tries to access such site by inserting keywords or URL address, the alerts and notifications can be set triggered to the parent. The child’s online behavior can be monitored round the clock.

Reporting & Management: 8.5/10

The user of SpyAgent can enjoy one-click access to the reports and activity overviews avoiding lengthy and annoying procedure to retrieve the reports. Reports are pulled with “Top 10’s” approach. This means retrieving the Top 10s of all touch points. The simplifies the reports for a bigger extent.

The software does not take more than a minute to install. The graphical interface is intuitively designed for a simpler and user friendly appearance. The software is self explanatory with built-in documents, ability to filter logs by date, usage tips and other utilities.
