Re: Need Good, free, safe, reliable keylogger
heels_fan since you are the account holder for the isp, the possible activities of this teenager on your network are *your* activities. Several years ago, my security was lax and hacked by a neighbor, who downloaded a full season of copyrighted material. The ISP security advised I was responsible, and it was my first, (and never again) warning.
A guest user might be involved with child porn, deactivate your virus protection, and so on. Anything is possible. Ramifications are much more than the parents coming after you, and you do have every right to monitor your network.

Actually, if another user comes on the scene and breaks the law, you're the first one the police come to...but that doesn't mean you're liable. To be liable, one either needs to be committing the act, or aware of said illegal act & look the other way.
Offering to let a family friend use your WiFi doesn't put you immediately on the hook for what they do online. Investigations will certainly be all up in your face first thing, but the "I only let him surf, I don't know what he does on his laptop" holds.
Of course, there's some pending BS cases/judgements/overturns/etc. on open WAP piracy, but I'm talking criminal liability. Simply offering 'net access without any reason to suspect their activities doesn't make you guilty.
