"Wonderful features!"

April 30, 2015  |  By Pamela Mc

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

I have been really happy seeing all the screen shots this software takes, especially of all the alert words I have set up. This shows me when any of these words appear on the computer, whether it's in instant messages, emails and even webpages! This feature really makes sure I'm getting the full picture of what's happening on the computer.

Cons

Can't complain!

"Great monitoring solution for our family"

April 28, 2015  |  By Alfred726

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

My wife and I have used WebWatcher for a couple years on all our family's devices. Now that our kids are getting older, we have purchased for their own laptops and cells phones too. There are so many incredible features with this software and the peace of mind knowing that you can keep your family safer is wonderful.

Cons

We couldn't be happier with WebWatcher!

"Awesome parental monitoring"

April 23, 2015  |  By princesspagie862

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

I've been using WebWatcher on my daughter's laptop and am so happy to have it. It's great for busy parents like me who want to monitor their growing teens and help protect them online. I have a list of alert words that the software captures from her chats, emails, websites, etc.

Cons

Nothing - I am so relieved to have WebWatcher on my side!

"Nothing compares to WebWatcher"

April 20, 2015  |  By Partyanimal451

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

My wife and I have tried different monitoring software for our kids in the past, but the other products we've used do not compare to WebWatcher. The amount of features for the price is really extensive, and the 24/7 support available is an extra bonus that not many other companies offer. We have been happy customers this past year and are so glad we switched.

Cons

Not a thing.

"Super software"

April 16, 2015  |  By prosnowboarder876

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

This software was easy for me to install. I like that it runs undetected and you don't have to go on the computer that's being monitored. You just log in from any other computer to check the account.

Cons

No cons. They have a great feature list.

"Very satisfied with this purchase"

April 14, 2015  |  By annabanana3010

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

I was able to chat with their sales team before I bought the software so I was aware of all the benefits of using it. I'm glad that I can block websites both by category or by specifically adding others individually.

Cons

Can't think of anything.

"What a great value!"

April 13, 2015  |  By beachbum0721

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

I have been getting a lot of use out of this software! I check my account daily to find new information being recorded from the laptop. This software allows me to monitor the emails, instant messages, web history, keystrokes...the list keeps going! I am so happy I bought WebWatcher.

Cons

No cons. This software is just perfect for what I need it for.

"Awesome monitoring software!"

April 09, 2015  |  By Ruth Mejia

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

I'm really happy with all the features this software provides. I love the alert words feature, since I can customize the words it picks up, which is perfect for my growing teens. It will take screen shots of these words when they're shown in websites or their emails and chats.

Cons

Very happy, can't complain

"Excellent software that disappoints by costly extras"

February 28, 2015  |  By m-buzz

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

Webwatcher installs fine on the computer en remains in stealth modus afterwards. Even 2nd administrator PC-accounts can be monitored this way, giving young adults the freedom to install their own software.
It monitors a variety of computer activity (web, mail, software). Configuration fully takes place online.

Cons

This software is very good in monitoring yours kids activity. However if you're looking for software that keeps your kid away from smut, this isn't the right software for you. Some important features within the software are paid options. Think of blocking websites (+$14,95), keeping data longer than 7 days (+$19,95/14 days). Storage is also costly, ($24,75/month/250Mb!). Uncomfortable: datalogs cannot be viewed on an Ipad (need Flash). Annoying click-through merchandizing when logging in. Complex configuration of time schedules for hard-to-find programs. The license you buy is for 1 PC/device only (compare e.g. BSecure software for whole home protection including mobile devices).

Summary

The software promises a lot but feels as a paid options-trap. If you want to take responsibility towards your kids, you pay for it! The standard software gives you a lot of features but the data storage is unnecessary costly. If Webwatcher truly has a mission to keep kids safe, a more complete home-license & decent pricing for the options would be more fitting. This also would close the gap to competing software like NetNanny and BSecure (also PCMag's Ed. Choice).

"Really thrilled with this software!"

February 23, 2015  |  By Andrea McBride

 |  Version: WebWatcher 8.2.30.1147

Pros

I'm so happy I found WebWatcher to monitor my home computer. I love that you can create your own list of customized alert words. It will take screenshots when those words come up in emails, chats, etc.

Cons

Nothing bad to say
