PC TimeWatch manages access to the computer, to the Internet and to programs on the computer. You can define a set of rules for every person who uses the computer. The idea for the utility was inspired by requests from parents wanting to manage childrens’ time on the computer. PC TimeWatch allows parents to define rules that should be discussed with their children. Once the rules are accepted by everyone, PC TimeWatch enforces them automatically, thus defusing any conflict between parents and children.
Most similar programs have major security holes, and are easily disabled by anyone with a moderate degree of knowledge about computers. Not PC TimeWatch, which is much safer. And you don’t need to be a computer geek in order to use it.
PC TimeWatch was developed in collaboration with the team that created the classic PC Magazine Utilities, and this is reflected in its carefully chosen feature set and very simple, user-friendly interface.
Businesses also find it useful for preventing employees from using their computers to fool around. (Note that PC TimeWatch is not a spy program and does not log activity – it just controls access.) The program’s access management settings are very flexible so PC TimeWatch can be adapted to many types of uses.
