Monitoring Features of pcTattletale


Tracking of words can never be made so easy. pcTattletale can easily extract all the words that the user types in different apps on their device.

For instance, if your child is using WhatsApp web, or searching for something on the web, you will see those words at the top.

For viewing all the keystrokes, you need to tap on the given keyboard icon. As you would expect, every single keystroke was tracked by pcTattletale.

Live Viewing

This is the most unique monitoring feature that you will ever get. Live Viewing will help you see the activities being done on the target PC in real-time, and that too remotely.

Whether your kid is using social media, browsing on the internet, studying, or doing anything else, you can get updated on each and everything with the help of Live Viewing. That said, you might have to face some problems while they are watching a video.

While the target person is watching a video, pcTattletale stuck at a particular frame of the video. Frames might change in between but you won’t be able to watch the video.

But these few frames might be enough to reveal the type of video they are watching.

Record Activities

It’s quite obvious that you don’t have the whole day for tracking the target person. But on the other hand, you can’t bear to leave the activities of your kids unchecked.

In order to tackle this problem, pcTattletale can help you out by recording the target PC’s activities while you are offline. Once you are online again, you can check the recorded video.

The same can be done for other previous days as well. Apart from watching the recorded videos, you can download them as well.

Click Activity

In order to keep the kids away from PC addiction, keeping a watch on their PC use is mandatory. But you can’t do that while you are somewhere far.

But by viewing the number of clicks made every hour, you can make an estimate about the time spent on the PC.


Now let’s discuss that at what price is pcTattletale available for you. Basically, there are 3 plans of pcTattletale, the first one is FAMILY, the second one is FAMILY PLUS, and the third one is the BUSINESS plan. All three plans are available for monitoring 3 devices at a time.

The difference between the plans is based on the data you can save with each plan. With the FAMILY plan, you can save 7 days of data and it costs $99. The FAMILY PLUS plan is available for $147 and you can save the data for the last 30 days. As for the BUSINESS plan, you can save the data for the last 365 days, and it is available for $297.


Monitoring of PC devices is not given as much preference as it is given to cell phones. But tracking the computer activities of the child is equally important.

The app you are going to choose for PC monitoring should work perfectly if you want to know the truth your loved ones are hiding.

Without any doubt, nothing can work better than pcTattletale for this purpose.
