What is PC Pandora?
PC Pandora is one of the most comprehensive computer monitoring software titles on the market today. PC Pandora records ALL activity on a computer and gives parents the ability to activate additional parental controls. With the LIVE! monthly service, you can even retrieve the data remotely.
The primary recording function of PC Pandora is detailed screen captures of ALL computer activity which can be played back with DVD-like controls. Parents can view a visual record of all of their child’s computer and Internet activity at a quick glance.
For parental controls, PC Pandora contains category based Internet filtering capabilities. There are also white-listing and black-listing capabilities. Parents can implement PC Pandora’s filtering as a fourth-layer of protection after basic browser restrictions, windows controls and any controls they may have in their Internet security suite software. PC Pandora also allows parents to block programs from running. If your child spends too much time in instant messenger, you can block the instant messenger from being launched.
PC Pandora can run 100% silent and undetected OR in the open. PC Pandora is completely password protected. Monitoring is available on the user/account-specific level; choose which users to monitor, even at which times, and which users to ignore. The new 7.0 version of PC Pandora lets parents limit the amount of time a specific user can access the Internet and/or certain programs.
PC Pandora also offers three ways to review recorded activity. The first is by simply logging into the program on the monitored computer. All activity, screen-shots, and text-based data is available, along with easy-to-read colorized charts. The second method to review activity is through the built-in IRIS feature, which sends the text-based data to a parent’s email. While at work, mom and dad can get transcripts of web histories and instant messenger conversations.
On The Fly
Finally, PC Pandora LIVE! is available at as an optional add-on for monthly subscription price. With PC Pandora LIVE! a parent can log into an SSL secured server to check all of the recorded data (including the screen captures) and even make changes to the parental controls. Data is uploaded almost in real-time, so parents can stay up-to-the-minute on activity and implement controls almost immediately. The LIVE! dashboard can be accessed and viewed from any computer with an Internet connection and even your iPhone! This is the most convenient and effective way to monitor and control your child’s computer and Internet activity.
