    Are we talking about a parent tracking their kids passwords or something for a school?

    If the child Is under 13 and your a parent or guardian you can ask the child, but logging without consent is very much illegal .

    Not that I'm a parent and I'm sure you have your reasons but would it not be better to use parental controls built into Windows to monitor/log PC usage and as far as passwords goes its usaly best if you discuss your potential concerns and obtain the passwords through consent.

    It's called a keylogger. Use will be illegal and/or a breach of the terms of service for any of those web services. It'll also do major damage to your (or the schools) reputation with the kids in question - don't expect them to trust you when they find out you're doing it.

    What are you trying to achieve? There's probably a better way to go about it.

    target is just to have a check on girls who they r talking and to make sure they r not doing any mistakes as both r 13 and 14.. how ever i do feel it would be illegal if we do this on ny outsider.. .parents said me don't worry just do it ..they want to monitor and be friendly with them during working out their friend circle . .

    Tell the parents that its illegal unless they get a police warrant. No ways around it I'm afraid.

    Yep time to explain them there are other ways - do get them to look over Windows Parental Controls which can help montor usage but when it comes to personal messages without consent you have a whole world of hurt coming up...

    I've seen a few programes that do what you're asking for, but never used them! A quick google got me this: Spy Software, Monitoring Software and Keylogger (Keystroke Logger) - eMatrixSoft

    Legally and morally ... if you are in a school in England & Wales then it can be fine. The onus for checking should be based around child safety so it is in conjunction with your CPO (eg checking on bullying, etc) and the requirement should ideally be not just for feedback to the parents. The difficult point is on whether you are doing this with or without notification of users that it can and will happen. The Telecommunications (Lawful Business Practice) (Interception of Communications) Regulations 2000 ('the Lawful Business Regulations') says you can do it, but you have to be clear why.
    - The Lawful Business Regulations are the main source of lawful authority for the controller of the system to intercept and monitor. They permit the monitoring or keeping a record of communications for purposes such as standards, national security, prevention and detection of crime, investigating unauthorized use, and ensuring effective system operation.

    - The interception must also be relevant to the business of the system controller. (NB: This is the clinching argument for Educational Establishments – since there can be no argument that Interception and Monitoring of Pupils Web-Browsing is entirely relevant to the School’s activities)
