Need good parental software for Mac
My parents want to monitor my little brothers (5 year old) internet activity for a couple of weeks to check out who he talks to on IM and everything.
I suggested amackeylogger.com/family-keylogger-mac.html, but is there a better program?
If so or If not, is there any program you recommend?

Must be a clever child to be 5yrs old and already knows how to read/write & use IM programs.
Maybe implement a filter list on he's/her's user profile so that the child can only visit website's within an approved list.
This can be done via most routers in the settings area.
Or even the parent's/yourself could always just monitor them while they are using the IM programs.
most IM programs have an option to auto-save all chat logs into the relevant application folder. Just enable that also....

The best software is open source or at least, free.

You don't say what operating system the machine is running, but it looks like OS-X of some sort?
Is that his machine or yours?..............Windows apps will not work on a MAC and vice versa.
For a child of that age there is one simple solution that you should implement first..............make sure that the computer is in the family living area. Then you can actually see what is going on?
Must dash, I can smell that my spam roll is ready.
These days OS-X and Windows come with their own parental control applications, which you paid for with the operating system............check those out first before looking at some paid for snake oil spammed on an internet security site.

This thread title should be changed to
"Need Good Parents"
Placing the computer in an area to monitor the childs use and teaching the child how to use the internet and the how people and sites are not always what they seem to be, and basic security .........are the best practices.
Teach your children well and to make the right choices not only on the internet....in every aspect of life.

5 years old....WTF
What harm can a Wiggles site do?
Is he talking with his under 5 kindergarden biatches?

Real straight from the box formula Cream Babe".

Use the parental filters built into OS-X.
Don't use keyloggers. Seriously, just don't.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

My five year old demanded dual monitors and a RAID array.

Wouldn't it be easier to just install responsibility? Ah well, when my kid gets old enough to use a Computer and "accidentally" finds his first porn site, I'm not going to sit there for 12 hours telling him how it's naughty because really, it'll be better than him "accidentally" finding Daddy's Stash.
