This program is truly a tiny gem which should be on all computers.  There are three versions, and the FREE version covers most of the bases for the average user.  Simply follow the information (type in the address) to receive your own FREE copy.  http://www.qfxsoftware.com/support.htm  

 

What the program does in a nutshell, is scramble the keystrokes, to prevent a keylogger from obtaining your keystrokes (passwords, etc...).  Works with IE and FF, and the Compare chart shows you what extras are included in each version (but as I said, the FREE version is ideal for most users).

 

Been using this program for about one week now, but others I've spoken to, have used it for years and recommend it.  Best of all, it's an extra layer of security, (and did I say it's FREE), Mindblower!

 

PS  Jim, feel free to post this on the blog.

Hey MB - Nice find!! Good app with a good concept. However, I slightly disagree with the assessment that the free version is "ideal for most users".

There are some serious limitations regarding supported applications and services in the free version; it supports only 3 browsers (Chrome being a notable omission), and three webmail services (no client software at all), and nothing else.

Although keylogger malware can be coded to target specific activities, it will generally record all keystrokes, not just some of them related to specific applications.

That said, for those using a combination of one of the three supported browsers with one of the three supported webmail services, yes... a very helpful addition.

Thanks MB, I'll write something up for the blog.

Cheers... Jim

As always Jim, you're able to spot things others do not.  Here's a clearer picture.

  • KeyScrambler Personal protects everything in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Flock (Free to use).
  • KeyScrambler Pro takes the middle ground and protects over 140 apps ($29.99).
  • KeyScrambler Premium supports 200+ apps and provides the most comprehensive anti-keylogging protection ($44.99).

More information at  http://www.qfxsoftware.com/ks-windows/which-keyscrambler.htm

As someone who uses IE, FF and Hotmail, the Free version works for me, and I over generalized, Mindblower!  Wink

Not a problem mate. As I said, this would certainly be handy for anyone utilizing a combination of the supported internet apps... well worth a look see. Smile

Thanks for the share. A friend of mine said Keyscrambler is easy and straight forward but could be a bit more comprehensive for a free program.

Now that Kaspersky Internet Suite 2013 features Secure Data Input (a way to scramble both a real and virtual keyboard, I've uninstalled KeyScrambler. A true short lived gem of a program, Mindblower!

A little off topic, but what is your experience with Kaspersky IS 2013?

Glad you asked Dave.  Up-dated from KIS 2012 last week, and I'm very impressed with KIS 2013. Love the 2 new features, Safe Money and Secure Data Input.  Can't say I've experienced any problems, but have read on the Kaspersky forum that some are not as lucky, Mindblower!

Cool, thanks for the info.

What type of resource usage are you seeing and do you have any experience with the anti-spam function?

Actually I do not track the resources used aspect.  Also use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO) for additional protection, so I don't see any spam at all and not sure which is doing the blocking.  Good thing these two products work so well together, Mindblower!
