Romaco Timeout icon Software that will help you to lock a child / user out of their account if they spend more than their allotted time on the computer.

When you have children, it’s important that you make sure they don’t spend too much time on the computer, when they should be doing homework instead. Romaco Timeout is a tool that can help you restrict the amount of time anyone uses a certain computer.

The software comes with a nice, clean interface divided into multiple tabs, one for each available task. Thus, you can run a daily quota timer, define a session time limit, create an access window, block access to certain sites or programs and set a maximum time limit for web browsing.

Either of these actions can trigger the computer to log off, shutdown, lock or hibernate. Also you can have another app run when the time is up.

When you choose to enable a daily quota timer, you can select the amount of time available for each day of the week. If the computer is shut down, locked or the user logged off, the timer is paused. Once the user returns, the timer is resumed.

Timers set under the “Session Time Limit” tab reset every time the computer is logged off, restarted or shut down. Also, if you choose to activate the “Allowed Time Window” task, users can only log on the computer between the set hours.

Another tool that can be extremely useful, especially if you worry about your children’s online activity is the website blocker. The same can be said about certain programs that are installed on the computer, such as video games.

Furthermore, you can monitor the time spent browsing the Internet and disable the application once the cumulative time limit is reached. Other options include displaying a warning ahead of performing any action.

All in all, Romaco Timeout is an interesting program that can help you keep track of what your children or other people are doing on the PC. The tasks are easy to set and any user, no matter their level of experience, should be able to work with this app.
