KidLogger Kid Safety agent for Android

07/10/2021

We are glad to announce new version of parental control application for Android that will work for both KidLogger and StaffCounter services. Due to the latest challenges in cyber-security landscape, user monitoring applications needs to be adapted to conform both regulatory compliance such as GDPR and vendor based Reputation, such as Microsoft PUA or Google Play Protect. 

The new application will not hidden, but has the same features as hidden PRO version. The idea is to keep transparency and informs the phone user about the actions that are being monitored. In the taskbar, you can see the icon of the Application, that opens the info window with the actual supervision configuration from parents or company. We also are going to integrate mobile push notifications to keep track application activity from online service.

KidLogger update for Windows 10, PUA defender

15/09/2021

For the last year, cyber-criminals succeeded in a few significant cyber attacks by using weaknesses in Windows operating system, and so-called "supply chain" attack approaches.

As a response, since September 2021, for the latest Windows 10 version (20H2), Microsoft turned ON by default protection against potentially unwanted apps (PUA) by blocking them when downloading files. Windows defender incorrectly flagged KidLogger Setup as PUA due to functionality like screenshots, screen reading and keylogging. At the same time, Symantec EndPoint protection also labeled SafeJKA code signature as “WS.Reputation” flag. We have submitted an application of False-Positive detection to both organizations.  To change the KidLogger reputation level in Windows Defender cloud-based Threat intelligence, we also have released an extra update. 

For now, we assure you it is absolutely safe to install KidLogger Setup file. If you encounter difficulties downloading setup file – use  “Allow on this Device” option in Windows Threat protection dialog.

Support for end-2-end encryption (E2EE) soon

18/06/2021

KidLogger team would like to announce the end-to-end encryption (E2EE) soon will become available for all KidLogger users. With “end-to-end encryption" feature enabled, the data will be encrypted and anonymized by KidLogger Agent apps before upload to the kidlogger.net server and then decrypted in your web browser right in a moment when you are looking at the activity reports from your children's computer or smartphone. This provides the highest privacy level since data delivered to the cloud storage in encrypted form. This will enable the strongest compliance with GDPR regulation, since all the data will be encrypted, processed and stored in encrypted and anonymized form by default. Since this feature will be enabled on an account,  KidLogger will store only encrypted data blobs for each children device. Thus, information that belongs to you will not be processed by KidLogger or our data platform provider in open form.

Children's patterns of behavior during distance learning.

23/03/2021

In this article we will examine how children behave during distance learning, and how this can be determined using KidLogger for Windows.

We will look at six basic patterns of behavior:

  1.     The child is listening to the conference. He or she does not touch the computer;
  2.     The child is talking over Zoom with a teacher;
  3.     The child is chatting with friends using an extraneous chat client (Skype, Discord);
  4.     The child is reading some extraneous material in Word;
  5.     The child is looking at an extraneous website (Facebook);
  6.     The child is watching an extraneous video (YouTube).

Distance education and Zoom online learning under supervision.

11/03/2021

During the lockdown, we had to transfer children to a distance education. Online learning tools such as Zoom, Skype and Google Meet replaced the classrooms now. Many children have studied this way before, they just had a very long way to get to school. But how to control the distance learning quality for young students?

The adults can not always force themselves to concentrate and focus on work or study. What can we say about children! If they get distracted and do extraneous things, the teachers will not know about it, because many have their cameras turned off and the desktop is not visible. Meanwhile, knowledge gaps can negatively affect not only exam results, but also a child's future career. If a child gets used to being distracted now, he will never get rid of this habit again.

Now KidLogger for Windows record activity in online lessons conducted through Zoom: Number of participants, lesson duration, screen sharing activity, Zoom chat messages. Here we will demonstrate how KidLogger may help to assess the online learning tools such as Zoom and Google Meet to understand the effect of distance education.

Why disappeared KidLogger PRO for Windows

14/09/2020

You may have noticed that KidLogger PRO for Windows has disappeared from the downloads. This happened for a reason. Increasingly, Windows Defender started stopping KidLogger PRO and recognizing it as a Trojan horse. The reason is that the KidLogger PRO program works from a place unusual for other programs and collects data about the user's activity. Moreover, the installation of the program is carried out in a semi-automatic mode, which allows you to quickly and almost imperceptibly for the target user to deploy the surveillance system.
