Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Put your mind at ease with this monitoring software, which has one of the least attractive user interfaces we've ever seen, but performs really well.

CheatMonitor KeyLogger's white-on-black interface is truly hideous, but it's easy to set intervals to take screenshots and set up how frequently e-mail reports are sent. We weren't happy that it displays the email password without the asterisks, though, even with the publisher's claim that this is so users don't type the information incorrectly. Nevertheless, the e-mail reports arrived on time and each one included the selected number of screenshots. The e-mail report doesn't include keystroke information, but you can view that information from the program's interface. CheatMonitor KeyLogger can be sent into hiding with one click, and it's just as easily brought back into view.

Aside from the unappealing interface, CheatMonitor Keylogger's only other drawback is the too-short 5-day trial period. Still, we were blown away by its reliability and thoroughness. We highly recommend this capable monitoring tool.
