I want something similar, but, not the same. I want to block my kids from buying games using AT&T account. I don't have kid yet, but, just imagine they keep clicking buy and auto-charge to my AT&T bill and I have no control over it, scary.
He really should've picked a better password though, as both my brother and I were independently able to guess it within minutes (it was "ajax", his favourite football team). So much for the effectiveness of that measure.
I would actually love something like this so that I can monitor my own usage week to week. Am I spending too much time on StackOverflow? Too much time in [game]? This would be awesome for personal use. Plus I can see employers wanting to load up employee machines with this type of tracking as well (which I'm not exactly a fan of).
@jonathansampson: Now that's a great idea. I really could use it too. Anything that can help overcome a wondering mind is certainly a plus. Let's hope they expand this form just family safety on to something you can enable for any type of account.
Personally I think the whole reporting everything is somewhat overboard and an invasion of privacy. I don't think there's any need for parents to see everything their children (particularly teenagers) do online. Rather something that only reports stuff that needs to be reported (for example, this) seems to be a better solution.
