What is saavi accountability?
Saavi accountability is an online accountability program that is designed to help monitor all Internet activity. It was developed by Justen Wack to help users with internet related addictions actively monitor and control their web use. The product costs nine dollars a month, which allows the software to be installed on four computers, with no penalties or restrictions on length of subscription. 1 Saavi does not block any websites, just monitors time and location of Internet use. It is designed to deal with the user's potentially harmful Internet activity by using an accountability partner (or parent) to help monitor web use; thereby emphasizing choice over force. 2

The product does monitor and notify about activity, but creates some problem in Windows. Also, the product can be circumvented by a proxy and other means. It does not always notify if uninstalled, and the monitor can be turned off without any notification. It lacks organization and lacks a professional website. Overall, it is "hard to use" and "amateurish." 5 There are other products out there that operate better.
