Alert! Alert! - A New TOS Review!

Are you looking for software to help protect your family from the many Internet dangers that exist?  Then you might want to check out Action Alert.

The Product:
Action Alert is a software product designed to be downloaded onto your computer in order to give you and your family a safe environment while accessing the Internet at large. It has been endorsed by the Child Safety Network, a winner of Disney's iparenting award and even featured on the Today Show.
With Action Alert you are able to:

  • create a kid-safe PC with website blocking and filtering
  • control computer use with comprehensive time controls
  • get alerted when anything suspicious occurs and you can review activity
The action alerts can be received through your computer via email or you can have them sent to your phone so no matter where you are you can know what is going on on the computer.  If you receive the alert on your phone you can shut down your computer in one click.  And once the suspicious activity has occurred it is recorded and use of the computer is suspended.

It is like having 8 tools for one product:

Access Control
-shut down PC remotely
Activity Notification Tools
-received via email or text

Activity Video Recording
-records 60 hours of PC activity
Time Allowance
-can set daily times when PC usable

Site Blocking
-blocks unwanted and inappropriate sites
Safe Filtering
-allows only safe searches

Keystroke Logging
-logs user names and passwords
Chat and Email Logging
-ability to log both sides of the conversation

You can read more by visiting their FAQ section.

And you get to choose which version is right for your family.  There is a 100% Free version which has everything you need for a kid-safe computer.  With the free version you do get alerts via phone or computer, web filters, and website blocking to a constantly changing list.  You will also get free tech support

Or you can get the Maximum Protection version which allows customization, use for multiple users, and social networking monitoring.  The tools are more complete then the free version and you can see the missteps taken by the user online or sometimes the evidence of interactions when targeted by a wrong doer online. The Maximum Protection Version is just $29.99 and they have a 30 day money back guarantee.

If you are interested in learning more I ask you to read some other reviews and see how other Crew member families used the software. You are able to find Action Alert on Facebook and via their blog.  You can also call their free support line (1-855-639-9791) if you have any questions or issues while using Action Alert.
