One in five kids have been sexually solicited online, and most of them don't tell their parents. Now there's a way to secretly monitor everything our children are doing on the comptuer.
Imagine being able to monitor every keystroke, every e-mail and every instant message our children send. All mothers wish they could have eyes in the back of their head, and now they really can. It's called PC Pandora. It's a computer system that monitors everything our kids are doing on the internet. Sean Montana, the Director of Public Relations, says it's a lot like recording a show on televison.
"It's kind of like a Tivo for your computer. It'll basically record everything that is being done on the computer as the computer is running."
I installed the software on my own computer to see just how well it works, and I was shocked to see the results. PC Pandora took pictures of everything I did. It even recorded my passwords and made copies of my e-mails.
Montana tells us parents can see this information just minutes after their child logs on.
"You can set it up to where as soon as they log on, every 15 or 20 minutes an e-mail will be sent to you with whatever email address you want it sent to, and it'll actually show you what they're doing at that time. So you can access it remotely as well."
PC Pandora donates their software to school districts across the country in order to keep kids safe from dangerous online activity. For more information head to www.pcpandora.com
