Spy On Your Kids

from the building-trust dept

Since there are already all sorts of monitoring programs to let you spy on which websites your kids are surfing on, why not get one that tells you who they’re emailing as well. However, as the Register points out, the technology probably doesn’t work all that well. It’s also not particularly subtle, since it embeds a small logo in every email – so that your kids (and anyone who they email) know that their parents are not-very-effectively spying on them. Whatever happened to teaching kids right from wrong and trusting them to do the right thing?
