Hey guys.

Recently i've been checking the history on my PC and i've been seeing websites i've never accessed, somehow they look like sites my nephew would visit, like mini games accounts, etc. The problem is i've seen some porn sites too, and i'm concerned and i want to be aware of what he does.

does anyone know any keylogger of monitoring software that can send me anything he writes, or websites he visits, stuff like that? I wouldn't mind getting his e-mail password, as i want to see who he chats with (pedofiles are freaking dangerous). I'd love if it could send me the info to my email, and being able to hide it and prevent them from uninstalling it.

Thank you.

What operating system are you running? Windows has built-in parental controls that you can setup which are all web based and accessible from any computer so you can monitor it from work or another PC. They allow you to block sites, set times when the internet can't be used, and prevent specific programs from being used.

Yeah, i know about windows parental control. But my brother wants my nephew's password to keep an eye on him, he's only 13 and naive, and he's worried. that's why i was asking about a keylogger.

I'm running Windows 8.1 btw.

The best thing is to setup a user account with restrictions.
Next best thing is to keep the computer in an area where activity can be viewed by anyone walking by.

The problem with key-loggers is they don't record mouse clicks, which leaves a lot of info out of the records.
