It’s not that I’m inviting you to do something unethical as the title may imply but what if you do have the chance to do so? Well, this may sound very disrespectful to someone else’s privacy if you put up a computer spy on someone’s property but then again if it’s for a good reason then would you?

Several computer programs came out with the massive use of internet and concerned parents have dealt with many pains in securing their computer is always child-friendly. However, there are cases wherein due to today’s readily accessible cyber space, kids can just runaway from those security parameters through powerful proxies and manage to break-in without leaving a trace. In this case, there’s no evidence and as a parent, you cannot penalize your kids for no offense.

However, if installing a computer spy can caught them in the act of visiting prohibited sites, would you use it? If your answer is yes, then you need the help of a computer spy, a software designed to watch closely every single keystroke, web pages, images, chat messages and all other activities within a PC.

Industries also adopt this technology to detect employees goofing off during work hours and for detecting any suspicious activity.

If you think employing this mechanism on a computer is unethical then you can always show your disapproval on the comment’s section.

    My friends simply use the parental controls and block pretty much everything. Although now that their daughter is a teen ager, they might need to put in something like this.

    Parents really have to safeguard their children especially with all the information they can get online and only them (parents) can do the censorship.

    It’s important to watch your children and keep an eye on what they are doing online. You watch them at the mall or when you are out so why not watch them online? Spying in on someone else’s computer though is just plain wrong.

    Hi Dave, I get your point however in extreme cases, children can go astray, experiment online and meet dangerous people which happens anywhere in any country. You can’t always keep an eye on kids if you have some other things to do. It pays to be cautious.
