Editors' reviewA chat monitoring tool that provides full text rather than just keywords, ChatAlert will prove useful to any parents wanting to watch over their kids' PC use. Registration (with some minimal personal info) and a reboot are required before ChatAlert can go to work. The interface for configuring the utility's settings is well-designed and easy to understand and use, and it's password protected to prevent unauthorized changes. Once ChatAlert is running in the background, an unobtrusive smiley face icon resides in the taskbar. We like that the utility pops up a warning box when a user types info during a chat that includes ChatAlert's trigger words. A log file accurately captures the activity details. You also can set up sound alerts. Users in Australia and the United Kingdom can set up SMS alerts for mobile devices, but as of this writing other countries aren't offered this functionality. Parents looking for a simple tool to monitor chat activity should give ChatAlert a try.
Chatalert is the worlds first real-time chat room alert system that protects against predator, pedophile, drug solicitation and the giving of personals details whilst in chat rooms on the Internet. Chatlert works on most open chat room environment like My Space, MSN, Yahoo, Skyp, ICQ. Chat alert monitors real time chat conversation and notifies parents or administrators of suspicious conversation of behavior in a SMS notification or e-mail. Chat alert allows the user to respond to the alert by either sending a message to the screen, shutting down the chat session or shutting down the computer. This is all done remotely via the responsive SMS or e-mail. The SMS feature works in Australia only at this time and will be provided free of charge when available.
