Any review to find the best spouse monitoring software should look for the following features:
Web-Based: Spouse monitoring software needs to be web-based like Partner Guard. When activity logs are stored locally on a computer, the spouse may not always have access to them. They are also more easily deleted by the computer user. Activity information should be centrally stored on a server where the information is protected from tampering and where it can be readily accessed. If the spouse monitoring software is web-based, the spouse will be able to check what is happening on the computer user’s computer from any Internet connection, even from a web-enabled cell phone.
Real-Time Monitoring and Remote Control: The spouse monitoring software should allow the spouse to remotely monitor what is happening in real-time on the computer user’s computer, including screenshots, keystrokes, application history and Internet history.
Alerts: The spouse monitoring software, like Partner Guard, should be able to send a text message to the spouse the instant a rule violation happens so that issues can be dealt with immediately.
Stealth: The spouse monitoring software should be able to run in stealth mode so that the cheating partner can be caught in the act. It should also be able to be run normally so that it acts as a deterrent. By adding accountability to online activities, temptation is removed along with the secrecy.
