Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This application offers fairly decent parental filters for online access, but some competitive features are overlooked. Cybersitter only works with Internet Explorer and Netscape to block access to objectionable material on the Web, P2P file sharing, FTP sites, instant messages, and if necessary, all access to the Internet. You can configure the program to use Cybersitter's search engine and schedule allowable access times. The program filters search attempts and Web sites according to a default list or user-defined keywords. You'll also appreciate the blacklist that effectively shuns both URLs and phrases listed. What's more, it includes a whitelist of sorts, with one simple click, the only sites accessible are the ones you've specified. Though you won't find application blocking, screen captures, or a full keylogger feature, Cybersitter can log chats, sites visited, and any violation attempts, all of which can be sent to your e-mail. Its user-friendly interface is password-protected though the 10-day trial disables this feature. While it isn't exactly feature-rich, this software will provide parents a fractional set of parental-control tools.
