NegativeSpace Posted December 1, 2010 Share Posted December 1, 2010 I have a Dell laptop for my 10 year old nephew for christmas. He uses one of my home computers a lot, mostly to play flash games. I've never found any evidence that he is pointing the browser to anything that me or his parents wouldn't want him to see, but when he has his own computer that might change. I am looking for ideas on how to filter web content and for the best way to make the computer create reports on a schedule and also upon certain types of events. I'm not necessarily looking for any single software to do a comprehensive job because it seems that multiple purpose built software might be the best way to keep track of multiple content (internet browsing, facebooking, instant messaging, file sharing, etc). I guess my goals are to block connections to any domain that serves non child friendly content (like porn, racism, gang propaganda, etc), and to keep track of any personal correspondence that he may have (instant messages, email, website membership, etc). I don't think it will be necessary for me to be able to watch a stream of his desktop, but I would like to have the option if I see a need. One of the most important things to me is making sure that I track any instance of him transmitting personal or unique information, and to keep a record of all user names and passwords that he creates or has already created and is using on his own computer. Having that ability without needing to have physical access to the machine will do most of the work of making sure he isn't talking to anyone that we don't want him to talk to, child predators being the main one. I'm thinking that a strong key logger might do most of the job, but I'm still looking for ideas. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
