Editors' Review

This free monitoring program gets into the fight to keep your kids safe from online predators, but it failed to flag some sexually explicit terms in our tests. IMSafer doesn't have an interface. You'll perform all configurations and view content on the publisher's Web page, IMSafer.com.

After creating an account by submitting an e-mail address and password, the program is ready to monitor and send e-mail alerts. We like that you don't have to enter IM account names, as IMSafer automatically detects AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, Trillian, and Adium, although the free version will only monitor one account at a time. The software sorts through conversations for inappropriate text, looking for requests for visits or phone numbers, obscene language, and sexual references.

These conversations are immediately flagged and sent to the specified e-mail address in real time, once a day or once a week. You'll have to log on to the publisher's site to view the details. Unfortunately, you can't tweak the program to identify specific language and it failed to flag sexually explicit terms during testing. While it has some nice features, this program's inability to capture all potentially dangerous conversations means your kids aren't totally protected.
