"don't waste your time and money"

March 15, 2014  |  By avgjo5

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

can see sites visited

Cons

First day my son complained there was spyware on his computer and proceeded to remove Webwatcher. It was supposed to be undetectable and unremovable.

Summary

Waste of time and money, don't believe your kids can't detect and remove it.

Make you click past ads selling more useless product in order to use the tool.

"Works only for 1 month, then fails miserably"

December 07, 2013  |  By PeterNN

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

Don't believe in the 5-star reviews which are very likely Webwatcher's employees. The software doesn't work reliably and fails completely after a month or so.

Cons

Looks nice but doesn't work.

Summary

Webwatcher doesn't have the technology to do the job as advertised. Look for other software and save your money and headache.

"Better than nothing. More product less marketing is key"

April 13, 2013  |  By meenyz

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

Logs very well keystrokes missing few things. Reads encrypted only if you are typing into an encrypted pw field. Cant read an automated entry. Logs and captures most all alert word categories and blocks majority of questionable websights. Definately not all. Overall you will get a good idea of whats happening on that computer in general. Id say if it were priced more moderately it would be a worthy investment for many. They renewal offers are better than original price.

Cons

You will have to manually enter webpages at some point because its a hit and miss on blocking web content. Ive tested it thoroughly and gotten past many of its blocking features with very little effort. Basically searched and clicked the website! Pricing isnt attractive to someone who wants to use this ongoing for years.

Summary

Its better than most and ive tested tons of them. Id say the biggest asset is that it doesnt hold the computer down and slow its performance. Its not even noticed after the install. Updates on its web blocking features and updates on current softwares that are popular would be a plus. Tons of new chat programs your kid shouldnt be using that easily get by it.

"Fails to operate as advertised."

March 30, 2013  |  By cueball737

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

the geolocating seems to be pretty good. Thats the only data that was fairly consistently reported. It doesnt save data and will only report Geoloc if the phone is checked in to the server.

Cons

Servers fail to display data in timely fashion sometimes 4 days late. Server loses data. Server fails to display all the data collected. The software worked ok until put into service and then immediately developed problems which according to the tech support requires access to the target unit. This software is unreliable, frustrating and disappointing. The server inconsistently reported data sometimes reporting data before the fone was listed as checking in, sometimes failing to report data as promised. Support always has some lame excuse for it not working right.

Summary

Dont waste your money if reliability is important and you cant constantly baby sit the target units. If you buy this you will probably be disappointed and frustrated.

"Auto-renewed without permission and wouldn't refund"

March 09, 2013  |  By pappleg8

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

Tech support is 24/7

Cons

On several occasions the reporting just stopped working. When my subscription ended I decided not to renew. Unknown to me, they auto-renewed my subscription without telling me. Their own logs show that I was not using the software. When I asked them to refund my money they refused.

Summary

I would not recommend a company that stoops so low as to trick its customers into paying for a product that they don't want..

"like having online access"

February 15, 2012  |  By mrhemi71

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

everything i do/use for software these days is 'in the cloud' so it was nice to find a monitoring software that did the same. i think the web has made us expect that you should have a username and login for an online account when using an application or program.

Cons

would be nice to install on my daughter's macbook air too

Summary

it's been a good piece of software thus far. i'll update if anything comes up.

"Great online support, bad product."

December 24, 2011  |  By skinnyflip

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

Worked great for one night.

Cons

Avast picks up the "trojan horse" which goes to firefox temp's directory even when directions to exclude certain folders were done.

Summary

For this program to be effective, you'd have to keep restoring the file that Avast has blocked. If avast picks up on it even after following instructions on avoiding anti-virus pick-ups, then this so called invisible monitor isn't really invisible. Rated this one star because it was not able to live up to it's own hype.

"Yes this software is a junk and scam"

December 10, 2011  |  By BenjaminGross

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

This software does not provide anything useful. All the features can be found in other free software in this category. This software charge you $97 and more but it is not even working properly.

Cons

expensive.
not working.
buggy.
scam.

Summary

Do not be fooled by the 5 start reviews which were provided by the company itself. They are fake reviews. I agree with the other reviewer that this software is a scam. Please stay away from it. There are many free alternative in this category and they are at least useful and honest.

"Incredible! Saved me time!"

December 08, 2011  |  By FrankyTankie

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.0.2.993

Pros

Monitors remotely, blocks programs, websites, no AV detection!

Cons

Couldn't find any flaws

Summary

I've been looking for a monitoring software for quite some time. Tried 007, lockittight, Ardamax keylogger, etc and all have failed miserably in comparison to webwatcher. I would recommend this product to any parent or spouse looking to find out the truth. Thank you webwatcher for helping me find out exactly what my girlfriend was doing. You saved me a lot of time and confirmed my suspicions.
