Description - Offers computer time
management for each family member. Extensive customizability
for filtering including by program and keystrokes. Monitors
keystrokes, applications and chats.
SentryPC allowed us to specify the hours and days when
the computer and/or specific applications may be used, or limit
the number of hours a program can be open each week. SentryPC
also provided us with a log of online chats, sites visited,
words typed, applications used, and so on. The trial version
runs for only an hour at a time, but at least you can try its
features before buying.
SentryPC offers time management for each
family member. In order to accomplish this you must have each
family member have their own account on the computer. You can
set computer usage by the time and day of the week or by a weekly
total of hours they are allowed to use.
SentryPC gave us the option to be
set to stealth mode, this is where users of the computer will
not know they are being monitored.
SentryPC has extensive filtering capabilities
including the ability to allow or disallow programs usage, chat,
keystrokes, and Web site usage. Although this program does not
attempt to filter pornography from accidentally appearing on
the screen, if you monitor activity you will be able to tell
that what your child has seen so you can talk with them about
- Can be hidden from the users of the computer (or not)
- Inexpensive for all the features
- Adjustable speed for older, slower computers.
- Requires multiple computer accounts in order to work
- does not filter pornography from appearing on the computer.
Monitoring is where SentryPC really
shines. It will record all keystrokes that
are typed by each user, maintain a record of what windows were
open, applications that were executed, Web sites that were visited
and record everything said in Instant messaging.
SentryPC is a great all-around Internet safety program for
families. It offers several components that will allow you to
customize it for each member of your family whether they are
just going online for the first time or are Internet addicted
