Parents Who is Spying on Your Kids Online?

By: Buzz Scott

Spyware software is like a peeping Tom, peering into your computers logs and hard drive and tracking your activity. Spyware can follow your every step online and report to someone else what you are doing, what your children are doing. Most people have a personal computer. That computer is your entertainer, your personal assistant and something that you trust with very personal details. If you looked into your hard drive, you would see lots of things. You might see family photographs, resumes, documents with your address and phone number and a trail of where you've been online would be right there for you to see. Information on items you've recently bought including credit card details, personal information and you might also find chat logs where your children talk about their favourite things, their school, their friends. They name names in their conversations, name dates and events. Your kids talk on instant messaging programs about everything going on in their daily lives. You wouldn't want a peeping tom peering in at those conversations any more than you'd want them looking in your wallet and writing down your credit card or banking details.

Spyware has the ability to see your every keystroke. It can also flood your computer with unwanted images including pornography. Spyware publishers want to trick you into buying what they're selling and they want to know what sites you visit and what interesting things reside on your hard drive.

Spyware has become as a big a problem as computer viruses. Most people know to keep their computer safe from viruses by running up-to-date antivirus software. In today's day and age, it's now also necessary to keep your computer up-to-date with the latest in anti-spyware definitions too. Using a software package can protect your computer and your privacy. Spyware software eliminates existing Spyware from your computer and protects your files from those peeping Toms who want to steal your information and flood your screen with advertisements.

Spyware not only spies on you and your family members but it also can slow your computer down to a crawl and render it practically useless. As the Spyware programs invade your resources to send your personal information elsewhere, it uses so many of your resources that you end up waiting forever for pages to load and programs to run.

Spyware software is the only solution to keep your computer and family members safe from the prying eyes of these thieves.
