Instant Messengers have become an essential part of businesses today. Instant communication can bring increased productivity and better communication. Along with this comes many possible threats to your business as well.
How much time do your employees waste chatting with friends outside of work or fellow employees about non-work releated issues? Are your employees sharing files through Instant Messengers that contain viruses?
Are they leaking or stealing valuable company information? A quick scan and review with the Chat Stick can tell you in minutes.
At home, Instant Messenging can also pose problems. Your children can easily be talking to online preditors or be having inappropriate conversations with friends. Your partner may be chatting with an old flame. Get peace of mind by monitoring what goes on in your home on your computers with the Chat Stick.
Sexual predators don't only lurk in chat rooms. Once they gain your child's trust, they often start to chat with them through regular chat clients. Kids also often talk about things they've done or are planning to do with their friends online not thinking they're leaving a trail of their conversations behind.
Are your company secrets being leaked right under your nose? Employees using chat clients can not only waste hours of time chatting with family and friends, they can use a chat client to send sensitive data to anyone.
Spouses, Boyfriends, & Girlfriends
Is your spouse or significant other talking to an old flame? Chat logs are a great way to determine if they are staying faithful.
Because the chat analysis software is embedded in a USB thumb drive, you can easily take it anywhere and use it on any computer you own.
Because we know how to distinguish between chat logs and other files of similar format, searching a hard drive of any size is fast and easy. Chat logs are generally small as files go so copying them to the stick and parsing them out so they are easy to read is a snap.
The Chat Stick looks like any other USB drive. No one would suspect the device can be used to see what they are saying with chat programs when they are using your computer.
Paraben's Chat Stick utilizes Paraben's proven forensic analysis technology for chat log analysis. Forensic investigators have been using Paraben's chat log analyzer for years. Now, this technology is available in a portable device so you can quickly and easily grab chat logs from your PC for analysis at any time.
Chat logs are typically stored as database files but can also be in other formats. Usually, in order to view chat logs, you would need to log in as the user, open the logs, and spend hours sifting through them. If you are doing this on your child's computer, this exposes you to many risks. The Chat Stick can find all available chat logs quickly and easily. You can then take the stick to your own computer and take your time reading through the logs.
One important thing to remember is that you will need to make sure chat logs are turned on. If logging isn't turned on, there are no logs for the Chat Stick to grab. Each of the chat clients that is supported by the Chat Stick will have special settings to turn logging on.
As an added feature, the Chat Stick will also grab Internet cache files. Under the "Advanced" button within the program, you can choose to acquire Internet cache files in your search for chat logs. You can then view these files under the "View Found Chat Logs" button. Keep in mind that there can be hundreds or thousands of Internet files in the report so viewing them all may take some time.

How does it work?
Paraben's Chat Stick knows where each supported chat client stores its logs. It quickly scans a computer for saved chat logs and saves them in a special report on the stick so you can view them at your convenience.
How fast does it work?
That depends on a number of factors such as computer speed, the size of the drive being scanned, and the size of the chat logs. Typically, a search will only take a few minutes.
Do I need the password of the computer I'm scanning for pornography?
Yes. You will need to be logged into the system you are investigating. If you plan on using the "Remember This Computer" option, you will need to be logged in as Admin.
What does "Remember This Computer" do?
The first time you insert the Chat Stick into a new computer, you will need to manually navigate to the drive (most times, Windows will simply ask if you want to open the root folder of the thumb drive) and double-click on the Chat Stick software to run it. If you click the "Remember This Computer" button, you will no longer have to manually launch the Chat Stick software each time you want to get chat logs from this computer. The Chat Stick thumb drive will be recognized by the system and allowed to automatically run the software and automatically start searching for chat logs (it may take a minute on some systems for the program to start).
Does the Chat Stick record chat conversations as they occur?
No. The Chat Stick was designed as an investigation tool. This means it only analyzes data that has already been saved in the form of chat logs by the supported chat client.
Is the Chat Stick considered spyware?
No. Spyware is software that is either installed on a system unknowingly to the user or software that gathers and sends information over the Internet without the user's knowledge. The Chat Stick is an investigation tool that simply scans a computer for chat logs and saves them in an easy to read format for you to read through at any time.
I run a search with the Chat Stick but it doesn't find any chat logs. Why?
This is either because there are no supported chat clients on the computer or logging is not turned. Chat clients generally have the ability for the user to turn chat logs on or off.
How can I turn chat logs on?
Each chat client is different. Generally, there is a Preferences or Options menu in the main chat client program. Look for an Archive or Login option and set it to save all conversations.
Does the Chat Stick get Facebook, MySpace, and other web based chat logs?
Websites that allow visitors to chat with each other do not save archives to your computer. Even those that look like chat clients like Yahoo! Messenger online do not save chat logs. The Chat Stick cannot display conversations for web based chats. However, under the advanced options in the program, you can choose to gather all web activity from your browser's cache. Sometimes, these files can contain remnants of conversations for web based chats. If selected, Internet activity will be included in your Chat Stick report for you to manually search through. Keep in mind, Internet cache can contain hundreds, even thousands of files for you to manually sift through.
There are multiple folders in when I open reports. Which one is my search results?
Each report is saved under a folder named with the time the search started (i.e. 2009-10-29 22-54-51 for a search that was started October 29, 2009 at 10:54:51 PM). You can keep as many reports on your stick as room will allow. Keep in mind that there is a limited amount of space on the Chat Stick, however, chat logs are generally small so you should be able to save hundreds of found logs on your stick before you need to delete them.
I accidentally deleted all the files on the Porn Detection Stick. What do I do now?
The PornDetectionStick.exe file is necessary for the Porn Detection Stick to work properly. The Run folder is a hidden folder that contains essential files as well. Do not delete these files. Do not format the Porn Detection Stick. If you accidently delete the PornDetectionStick.exe file, contact support at http://support.paraben.com and we'll send you a replacement file that will work for your stick. If you accidentally format your drive or you delete the hidden folder called Run, you will need to send in the Porn Detection Stick to Paraben with return postage and we'll reassign the files and send it back to you.
