"Finds and removes stealth keyloggers"

Overview

Keylogger Detector is yet another product in the privacy and security niche. It was designed to provide your computer with strong protection against keylogging software. It is reported to be effective in finding and removing keyloggers and other spy software.

This may be quite a viable solution, considering the fact that developers also offer a keylogger on their website, so we assume that they know how keyloggers work and Keylogger Detector developers have fundamental knowledge about spy software behavior. Clearly, firewalls and antivirus systems are insufficient to protect your against keyloggers and camfecting. Keylogger Detector does not detect malicious spying software based on its signature; instead it analyzes software’s behavior sorting out the spyware.

Installation

Installation is quick and simple and has no prerequisites. Keylogger Detector is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1.

Features

The main difference between Keylogger Detector and analogous software is in the algorithm which is based on specific behavior of keyloggers. Consequently, a user is not dependent in his security on signature updates. Keylogger Detector, in this way, is able to detect the newest or custom-built keyloggers. The trial version is fully functional and is limited to 10 days.

Interface

Keylogger Detector has a simplistic interface, which can be an advantage for novice users. Even though it is not particularly attractive or modern, the program provides a comprehensive help file with search options so you can search your query with keywords. Developer’s website also offers some help. The main window displays main functions: you can run a scan, you can see the details and affected programs, as well as buy the full license.

Pros

Keylogger Detector scans your computer and identifies spy related programs, as well as programs that can be affected by spyware. This program detects password stealing programs, chat and email logging programs, keystroke logging programs and other software that monitors your Internet activity. The program contains useful features so that users can see what the program identified exactly, and an option to remove spyware from your system.

The fact that the program analyzes software behavior instead of relying on its signature may be one of its strongest features which can be decisive for the savvy users. This unique algorithm makes it possible to detect custom-built keyloggers.

Program is extremely simple to handle, and even novice users can master it with a smooth learning curve.

Cons

GUI is quite simplistic, but it’s not a con per se taking into account the program’s virtues.

Alternatives

Zemana Antilogger, Oxynger Keyshield, Data Guard Antikeylogger and many more, since the anti-key logging market is becoming increasingly popular. Nowadays, anyone, even novice users can buy and use advanced and powerful keylogging software, which means no one is safe against spying. Unfortunately, an angry employee, or a jealous spouse, or a perverted neighbor can monitor your online activity without you even knowing it. We absolutely recommend you familiarize yourself with anti-key logging software available on the market.

Conclusion

Keylogger Detector is simple, yet interesting software, simplistic in its interface, but promising in its performance, mainly because of its unique algorithm created by keylogger profies. We recommend you give it a try.
