It also records detailed reports on the use of programs, including active usage time, runtime, bandwidth used, mouse clicks and keystrokes written in each program with the option to block or limit time of certain programs or games. In addition, screen capture, periodically or based on specific activities, monitoring and filtering of chat and email, monitoring and blocking of printers and USB devices, Internet time restrictions, monitoring and filtering of network connections, email notifications and more.
HomeGuard runs, by default, in hidden mode completely hidden and undetectable, however, it can be configured to show warnings to users when something is locked. Either way, it is uninstallable, cannot be closed and cannot be avoided using proxy servers.
The monitoring data collected by HomeGuard on monitored computers (client) can be viewed remotely using the HomeGuard server component that maintains a main database of monitoring records that synchronize securely and automatically with supported client computers for secure 256-bit compression and encryption of all data transferred over the network. The server component runs as a Windows service and can also be used to remotely change monitoring and blocking settings.
