New York, NY (PRWEB) December 14, 2012
The holidays are here, the shopping season is in full swing, and a lot of high-tech toys are sure to be unwrapped this December. Pandora Corp. is reminding parents to make sure those new PCs are secure and protected. To help, the company is giving away their flagship PC Pandora computer monitoring software to parents, as a holiday gift.
Today’s youth live their lives in an unprecedented digital fashion and this year’s wishlists are topped with dreams of smart phones, tablets, and computers. Because of increasing amount of school work requiring a computer and increased pressure from peers to be socially active online, tweens and teens having their own PCs, or using the family computer on a regular basis, is an unavoidable reality. Pandora Corp. is reminding parents to be smart when buying those new machines this holiday season.
“What parents tend to forget is that these high tech toys are incredibly powerful,” explains Pandora Corp. founder James Leasure. “A computer that connects to the Internet is connecting your child to the rest of the world… and visa versa. That’s not something that should be taken lightly and simply handed over to our tweens and teens without any precautions or securities in place.”
Leasure says parents must adopt and enforce a new set of rules, such as leaving the door open and a “no Internet after __” cut-off time. Also, visiting a child’s room often when they are online and asking them questions about what websites they are visiting and who their online friends are needs to become standard family practice. But parents should also take advantage of software that will help ensure their kids are playing it safe on the Internet.
“As you get ready to give them the ‘big gift’ this year, make sure it is outfitted with the proper parental control software,” says Leasure. “Tools like our PC Pandora make it easy to find that safe, happy medium between teens being able to freely use the Internet without roadblocks or restrictions, and parents not being left in the dark about their child’s online activity.”
PC Pandora is computer monitoring software that records all user activity on a computer. First-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the screen, allowing parents to see first-hand everything their child does both on and offline. Further details of user activity are made available in text-based files and easy-to-read charts, including Facebook activity, websites visited, instant messenger chats, emails sent and received, peer-2-peer files shared, keystrokes logged, programs accessed, Internet search queries and more.
“PC Pandora is essentially a DVR for your child’s computer,” says Leasure. “If your child is talking to strangers on social networks, creating and maintaining multiple social network profiles, visiting websites you don’t approve of, downloading illegal music and movies, or falling victim to or – even worse – acting as a cyberbully, you will know about it if you are monitoring their internet activity. That awareness opens the door for conversation.”
As a special promotion for the holidays, the company is offering the software for free to parents for the rest of the year. Use the code “HOLIDAY2012” at checkout on http://www.pcpandora.com to get a complimentary copy of PC Pandora 7.
