Accountability software, or Internet accountability software, is a type of Internet usage monitoring software. Often an individual installs accountability software on his or own computer in order to try to avoid pornography use.
"Internet accountability" is the willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions on the Internet. Accountability software may monitor Internet use on a personal computer, or Internet use by a specific user on a computer. These software applications then generate reports of Internet use viewable by a third party, sometimes called an accountability partner.
