Keylogger

Postby Dr Don » Mon May 27, 2013 8:37 am

So I probably shouldn't feel the need to use a keylogger I know but are there any safe free one's out there? or paid for ones which are safe

Thanks in advance for any help

There are both free and paid keyloggers.

Safe is a concept that is entirely dependant on who is using it and what they're using it for. I have yet to hear of a time when a keylogger has been used "safely".

I can't think of anything other than illegal means to use them.

To check what your kids have been doing on the family PC? If they're half savvy they'll know how to delete history etc, but a nicely hidden keylogger might pick up some other stuff.

Also, for illegal stuff.

I asked if there were any safe ones cos all of the free ones I've researched at least one person has complained about spyware.

I'm not using it to steal any info(honest guv), just to monitor those closest to me.

Get a USB one. Safest of all.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.

Plug keyboard into it and it into the PC. Records onto the stick, no software required.

Well if they're savvy enough they'll just use the on screen keyboard, once something has been said.

What to monitor those closest to you like your wife's email or banking. And if its that bad with the kids that your actually having to go to the extent of a key logger for them, should be looking at your parenting skills than anything else or having them use the PC in the same room as you.

That's because recording peoples keystrokes is spying. :roll:

There are much less intrusive and more successful ways of monitoring activity. If you tell us specifically what you want it for we may be able to offer better solutions?
