Parental control software. Protect your kids
from negative impact of the Web
StaffCop Home Edition
Parental control software with unique monitoring features. This version of StaffCop is designed specifically for home use. Computers should be places where children can learn, make friends, and sharpen their agility as well as their abilities. But our kids also need to be protected from the computer for two reasons: the first one is the danger of the child losing his or her sense of time and spending too much time playing games. The second reason to exercise vigilance with your computer – literate kids, is the danger lurking on the Web, in inappropriate websites and contact with strangers. That is why it is necessary to install StaffCop Home Edition on computers that your kids can use. This will help to prevent them from visiting websites that are clearly inappropriate for children and teens.
Main Features of StaffCop Home Edition:
- Stealth Mode – the whole StaffCop system is hidden from the PC-user; itпїЅs very hard to find and locate all StaffCop processes.
- Analytics modules generate charts and statistics on how much time is spent playing games, running applications, visiting websites, and chatting in IM.
- Screen Capture – screenshots are taken every few minutes and may be accessed through the admin panel.
- IM and email correspondence is tracked and analyzed, and may be accessed through the admin panel.

- Social Network Monitoring – all actions performed in Facebook, Classmates or VK are tracked and analyzed. You are able to see private messages, photos and other materials seen by the user.

- …and Much More!
A child cannot detect the program because it operates in stealth mode and does not appear in the list of running applications or, the list of programs.
All records, statistics and screenshots can be reached through the password protected administrative module which canпїЅt be accessed by children.

Email Correspondence Monitoring
Email is the most popular communication channel over the web,and can certainly be dangerous for a kid, or even the whole family. Using email communication strangers may ask for info about family’s finances, what time parents come home from work, or they may even try to invite your child to a sect. Email correspondence monitoring will help you to prevent these occurrence.
StaffCop Home records the page address (URL), title, time of access and time spent on each website. All types of Web browsers are supported. You can see a list of opened websites when needed, or access a report of all sites visited by your child in a specified time range. The advantage of StaffCop’s tracker is that it doesn’t use the easily forged browser history (which may be cleared by an educated child) to collect information about web traffic.
StaffCop Home allows you to create logs and reports of all websites and individual Web pages visited by your child. Advanced logging mechanisms detect pages visited with any Web browser of any version including commonly used browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla, and Opera. StaffCop Home effectively records the URL addresses and page titles of every visited resource.
Chats/IM activity monitoring
StaffCop Home’s agent module logs all chats excahged through popular instant messengers, such as SKYPE, MSN Messenger, ICQ, and AOL Instant Messenger. StaffCop Home records both incoming and outgoing messages (most IM loggers can only detect outgoing messages). In the reports, you may choose to sort chats history by contact, day, or time. You will also be able compare time spent chatting with time spent on other processes.
USB Device Monitoring
StaffCop logs the use of USB devices, recording the device name and the times of connection and disconnection.
All types of USB devices (Flash drives, MP3 players, iPods, iPhones, cameras, etc.) are supported.
StaffCop Home allows you to monitor the clipboard. If a child copies any kind of information to the clipboard (CTRL+C, Copy), you will be able to track it in logs and reports.
Social Network Monitoring
In today’s world, children spend a lot of time on social networks. This becomes a significant part of their lives. It is important to monitor these online visits, so that children do not spend too much time in social networks and do not communicate with potentially dangerous strangers.
Thanks to StaffCop Home, the problem of monitoring social networks is solved. You are able to see private messages, photos and other material seen, uploaded, liked, or commented on by the social network user.
Search Term Tracking
A separate type of monitoring is Search Term Tracking. All queries your child makes in search engines are available in a separate tab of the event log, so you can see what interests your kid and what information he or she seeks. Search Term Tracking supports most popular search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask, Yandex, etc.
File and Folder Tracking
StaffCop Home detects all file operations on networked PCs. You can easily customize the report by tracking particular file types and events, e.g. accessing Word or Excel files in My Documents or executing files in Program Files.
When files are created, copied, opened or deleted, StaffCop tracks this information.
All keystrokes are recorded to protect your child from the negative impact of targeted chats and custom communication systems. You can see the key logger reports in real-time, as well as access them through a schedule.
PC Activities Reporting
Report Wizard is an integral part of StaffCop Home that helps to analyze your child’s activities and time spent at the computer. For any day, week or month, you can view the applications launched and used and calculate, the time spent effectively. StaffCop Home creates comprehensive time sheet reports organized by application. The same reports can be compiled for websites, documents, key strokes, and so on.
You can view the programs that your kid initiated and executed, with details including the time of day of the program’s launch and duration of the program’s activity. You can generate a spreadsheet style report based on time intervals that shows which programs were running, or create a graph that illustrates the percentage of time spent on different types of activities.
StaffCop module runs as a Windows system service. If a user doesn’t have administrator credentials, then it is not possible to stop, bypass or get rid of it.
Information is encrypted on the Agent side and decrypted on the Admin side, so it is impossible to intercept and view the data.
StaffCop Home special features special module security: you will be able to set the password that will grant you the access to the admin panel, reports and realtime monitoring. Even if your kid accidentally opens the admin panel – he or she will not be able to enter or view any data. You can also set up special keyboard shortcuts to reach the admin panel and then remove all the desktop and tray icons.
