Editors' Review


Parents can turn to Family Cyber Alert for the truth about what their kids do on the computer, online, and in chat. InfoWorks Technology's software monitors and records keystrokes, mouse clicks, and browser activity. It takes screenshots, records chats, and logs programs and files accessed. Family Cyber Alert also notifies you when forbidden activity is detected. Password protection and hidden mode help parents stay a step ahead of tech-savvy youngsters, too. Family Cyber Alert is free to try for 7 days.


Passwords and hot keys: Setup begins by changing the too-easy default password. Hot key combos hide the running program from view and recall the log-in screen, so you can access log files and recordings or change settings: Don't forget them!

Real-Time Watch: Enter keywords and auto-email settings, exclude trusted users (like yourself) in the User Filter, and configure the App Watch, Email Alerts, and the Website Blocking List via the Real-Time Watch tool.

Not for parents only: Family Cyber Alert can help anyone who provides or is responsible for computer services keep track of user activity.

Trust, but verify: Family Cyber Alert's logs and recordings don't lie.


Difficult to uninstall: Cyber Family Alert is designed to be difficult to uninstall or even detect, which is fine until it's time to remove it. Online Help has instructions.

Bottom Line

Few issues trouble parents like keeping their children safe on the family computer, especially when they're skilled at getting around ordinary safeguards. Family Cyber Alert helps you stay informed, aware, and in control.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Family Cyber Alert 5.05.

    "Need some response urgently"

    April 01, 2014   |   By mjbritton

    Version: Family Cyber Alert 5.05


    Can't think of anything good to say at this point.


    No key code even though paid for in full


    Bought this software through Cnet, paid for it in full on website and never received my key code. Tried emailing the only two address's available - support & info, no response. Tried the support form - nothing. What a rip! Bit like a Nigerian scam! Will have to see if I can pursue them through Visa.
