Oak Hill, WV (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
Zemerick Software, Inc. proudly announces new computer software called Chat Watch for Parents that is designed for parents to monitor and log their children's instant messaging. Chat Watch for Parents was created after extensive research showed an enormous need for this type of product. A 2006 study conducted by Cox Communications and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children found that 71% of teens reported receiving messages online from someone they do not know, and that 40% of those teens reported that they'll usually reply and chat with that person.
"Chat Watch for Parents is the result of much direct communication between our developers and parents from all over the country", explained Jeffrey Zemerick, President of Zemerick Software, Inc. "In February, 2009, I was invited to be a subject matter expert on online chatting at the West Virginia Cyber Safety Summit held in Charleston, West Virginia. This was a wonderful opportunity for me both personally and professionally. I was able to speak with many parents to find out what their specific needs and concerns are when it comes to their children's online safety. After gathering a vast amount of research, comments, and suggestions we were able to produce Chat Watch for Parents."
In addition to logging chats on AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger, Chat Watch for Parents includes other invaluable features. The Content Monitor scans the logged chats for inappropriate content and the Acronym Translator automatically replaces common chat acronyms and "text speak" into their English meanings. "Parents who may not understand teenagers' online lingo will no longer have to spend time deciphering the meaning of their children's chats", said Zemerick. Chat Watch for Parents can also automatically e-mail a copy of the chat logs to the parents.
Chat Watch for Parents is compatible with Windows Vista and Windows XP and can be downloaded at http://www.zemericks.com. Significant discounts are available for non-profit organizations, libraries, and schools. For more information please call (888) 490-8833.
