HomeGuard Activity Monitor Review

Advanced parental control and activity monitoring
A review of HomeGuard Activity Monitor by Tina de Pierre

HomeGuard Activity Monitor is a very powerful tool which was designed to monitor and restrict Internet access for children in the home -- anywhere from young children to teenagers.

With the growth of the Internet and the large amount of adult material readily accessible, children are often witness to things they shouldn't be when it comes to browsing the web. HomeGuard provides numerous tools to prevent access to sensitive content online.

After first installing this application, you might not the vast amount of tools out-of-the-box. They range from content censoring tools to a keylogger and screen capture feature. Upon initial installation, HomeGuard includes a very large list of pre-censored web sites and keywords which should trigger a block. There is normally little need to add or remove from this list.

Everything that HomeGuard controls is behind password protection. The master password should be selected upon installation. Once it's up and running, it runs silently in the background as a process. While it's running, virtually every aspect of the system HomeGuard is running on is monitored and/or restricted.

At the end of the day, this is a very powerful application capable of preventing children from seeing and doing things they shouldn't.
