Editors' review

KidLogger for Mac lives up to its name, providing effective and diverse tools for monitoring the activity on a computer. Even though it is clear that the program is put together by a tech-savvy developer, the primary user of this program will likely be a parent, so it may need a few improvements in the user interface.

KidLogger for Mac downloads and installs easily enough, although a navigation function on the tile bar would be a nice addition. The program provides several different options for the user, including recording keystroke logs, taking Webcam and screenshots at user-specified intervals, and recording file movement and downloads. It also records time spent on the computer and a list of applications that were used during that time. The options menu includes a few useful features, including password protection, location tracker for the laptop or smartphone, and a function that allows users to specify keywords that will create automatic screenshot captures. It also includes the capability to access an online drop box where all of the logs are stored. The one drawback is the log, itself, as it's not extremely well explained. The screenshots and Webcam shots are certainly easy enough to see, as are files and drives inserted, but the keystroke log doesn't appear in a very readable format, and may require some technical expertise to decipher.

KidLogger for Mac could be ideal for a company that wants to monitor employee computer activity, but for the average parent monitoring children it may be a bit too technical. The interface is a bit too sparse and poorly explained to be easy for amateur computer users; but on the whole, the program functions exactly as it ought to. Once you know your way around the app, it is a very effective tool.

    "BETA! Functions fail!"

    February 12, 2012   |   By NexusV

    Version: KidLogger 1.1

    Pros

    free screenshot emailing.

    Cons

    Does not email keylog Not even in paid version
    The ONLY thing that works is screenshot email to kidlogger.net with free account.
    Reports and other unless info that does NOT include keylogging requires paid membership.
    Membership costs a SUBSCRIPTION so you will forever be paying for this.

    Summary

    Avoid this beta junk. Typos in a production product that lures you with "free" and "keylogging" but fails.
    Keylogs only available on the computer this is installed on.

    Just get something with a one time cost.
