Keyloggers: Monitoring Keystrokes Made Easier

Keyloggers are pieces of software or hardware that you install on your computer or any other device. They let you keep a record of every keystroke that has been entered into the device. A software keylogger is very easy to install and is almost impossible to detect for someone who has no clue that a keylogger might be present. Specific software is required to detect a keylogger such as an anti-virus or anti-keyloggers. A hardware keylogger, on the other hand, requires you to connect it to the keyboard and the USB port, hence making it easily detectable.

Keyloggers can be of various uses, but they are mostly used to keep a check on children using computers. The internet can be a dangerous place for kids, and as one cannot be present with them all the time, a keylogger records every keystroke made thus enabling you to know what they’re up to. Another important use of keyloggers is to keep a check on your employees to make sure they’re not sharing any confidential files with anyone.

Now that you know what keyloggers are, you might want to try them out. In that case, here are 8 of the best keyloggers available.
