Editors' review

Aside from having one important feature disabled in the demo, this PC-monitoring tool is secure and mostly comprehensive. PC Tattletale Parental Control Monitoring Software's well-designed, intuitive interface is password-protected and, when run in stealth mode, must be called out of hiding with a hot-key combination. However, we should note the trial version isn't entirely clandestine, as it will alert users they are being watched. In terms of features, the program shines, capturing screenshots at user-specified intervals and logging keystrokes, e-mails, chat activity, programs launched, and Web sites visited. You'll also find a scheduler and the ability to block Web sites by keyword or URL. However, we should note support for Firefox is somewhat limited; though you can prevent Firefox users from visiting certain sites, you can't use the keyword feature or view actual typed URLs (you'll need to check the screenshot logs for that). Happily, we never managed to disable the program via the Task Manager or uninstall it without the password, so we think it's well-protected against even older or savvier kids. Parents looking to keep an eye on how their kids use the computers won't be disappointed with what PC Tattletale Parental Control Monitoring Software brings to the table.

    "Good Monitoring software for my 9 year old son."

    October 08, 2012   |   By maria446

    Version: PC Tattletale 10

    Pros

    works well and does what it says it will do. I have been using it for watching if my son is doing his home work or not.

    Cons

    It should have a website filter on it.

    Summary

    Good software for the money.

    "Lack of features"

    July 27, 2010   |   By colonsegur

    Version: PC Tattletale 8.1.17

    Pros

    Screenshots and keylogging are good

    Cons

    For child specific product it should have more control, not just recording.

    "Only for languages that don't use diacritical marks"

    June 10, 2010   |   By Jazc

    Version: PC Tattletale 8.0.098

    Pros

    All-in-one package: screen captures, key logger and e-mail alerts.

    Cons

    Useless if your language uses diacritical marks. You won't be able to enter them. Worse, according to Bryan Fleming from support, they don't plan to change the key logger (it means they don't plan to correct this bug).

    Summary

    Would you use a software that restricts the use of more than half of your vowels?

    The computer feels slow when running this software.

    It lacks a "live" view of screen capture frames when moving the slider, it only updates the viewed frame when you release the slider but not while you are dragging it.

    "Good monitoring, but not a filter"

    October 14, 2007   |   By sloshgator

    Version: PC Tattletale Parental Control and Monitoring Software 7.9.286

    Pros

    The application has comprehensive monitoring and tracking features including screen snapshots, key logging (including passwords), site tracking and keyword tracking. If you want to know what someone did on a PC after they did it, this is a pretty good package for doing it.

    Cons

    PC Tattletale is inadequate for blocking Web pages even though their documentation leads you to believe it can do this. Web sites with offending content is clearly displayed for many seconds before it forwards to the Microsoft Live website. To defeat this, simply hit the browser "back" button. It might change to the alternate site again a few times, but it eventually "gives up" and lets the user see the "blocked" Web site. Tech support gives the excuse that the application is monitoring software and not designed for filtering. So, I guess the appropriateness of the application depends on what you intend to use it for.

    "A really great software for parents"

    July 25, 2007   |   By jennycal247

    Version: PC Tattletale Parental Control and Monitoring Software 7.8195

    Pros

    I have used this software since 2003 and it keeps getting better and better. It does exactly what they promise it will do (unlike some others we've tried) and it makes my job as a parent a lot easier!

    Cons

    Well, like most parental control products / software these days, it gets incorrectly tagged as spyware by the big antivirus makers like Norton.

    Funny how norton tags this PARENTAL CONTROL SOFTWARE as "spyware" and yet they manufacture and sell their own parental control software....?
