    Going to have rugrats in the house in a month that are getting on in age, and will want to go on the PC. Since being a helicopter parent is something I'm not, figure I should make sure they're not up to shenanigans. Kids are sneaky, and probably already know about deleting history.

    Anyone have some experience with Keyloggers? On Macs specifically?

    If you're not a helicopter parent, why bother? Are you worried they are going to join a gang or terrorist group?

    If you're worried about porn, I guess the question is why? What harm will porn do?

    Didn't say they weren't my kids. Hence me asking. I could give not a fuck if it was someones random kid. I'd leave it on meatspin with fucd.com on a side window if it was.

    I use VNC and watch for shenanigans. You could also user Open DNS in your router and turn on filters, but that would affect you as well.

    Just create an account for them and restrict the fuck out of it. Go to System preferences/ Users & Groups/ Create new user (you might have to click the little lock icon on the bottom left 1st)/ Make new account with "managed parental control" preferences.
    Oh, and turn off "Automatically login as…" so the mac has a login screen at reboot. Whenever they need to use your mac, they have to use their own account.

    Actually Apple make this very easy too (surprise). Go to the Parental Controls preference, and you can set literally ANYTHING they're allowed to access, plus it saves a log for you. Problem solved.

    Looks good. No free trial for some random reason.

    I know someone who used a keylogger in another application and it works great. My only suggestion for kids would be to not allow any PC use that isn't supervised. Lock it down to a single PC in the family area. You can also get fancy routers that can limit internet access for some computers to certain hours of the day, and block certain sites. The nice thing about routers is that it's a hardware thing, harder for a smart computer savy kid to bypass.

    Probably say 'Fuck it' and go that route. Toss the PC by the main TV in the living room and leave it at that.
