AlaTimer, with the friendly assistance of Fred Flintstone helps parents monitor and restrict their kids' screen time, that is their daily computer use and/or Internet access time .

Kids don't yet know how to balance their activities!

Detox from Screen Addiction!

Fred allows each child that is set as a Windows user, a daily number of minutes per day. With Fred's help you can also restrict the use of the computer, that is the login to Windows and the Internet access, on any of the computers on your home network.

There is no limit to neither the number of computers nor to the number of users that Fred Flintstone can monitor and control, remotely.

Hover the mouse over Fred's icon and a short message pops up, showing the number of minutes that were used and the minutes left, before Fred would pop-up a 60 seconds warning message and then automatically logoff, shutdown, or restart the computer.

AlaTimer provides additional security to your computer, by blocking access to Windows Control Panel, Date and Time settings, Task Manager, Command window and to the Registry Editors.

Assuming that your Windows computers share a home network, via WiFi or wired connections, you can remotely modify any of the AlaTimer restrictions, change the daily allocated minutes and the Windows login, or the Internet access hours for a child that may not have completed homework. These changes you might make will take effect, in near real-time!

Run AlaTimer in stealth (invisible) mode and record the visited Internet web-sites .

Nagging will not educate your kids to share the use of one computer, or to spend less time on the Internet . With AlaTimer there will be no siblings' arguments!

Just relax and let Fred take control, while you remotely monitor and manage your kids' use of the computer and the Internet.

Install it and enjoy full use of AlaTimer, today.
It is absolutely free, for 30 days! You may then decide to license it, for a symbolic fee.
