Anti-Keylogger protects your PC from spyware and keyloggers. The program is quick to install and easy to run. It offers basic protection and there are better packages out there, but for guarding against keyloggers it is worth a look.
Anti-Keylogger is developed under the banner of "Global AntiSpy Solutions" which is owned by Global Information Technology (UK), which is in turn part of InfoBureau.net - the same company that makes Privacy Keyboard. While Privacy Keyboard gives you a virtual keyboard as defense against hardware keyloggers and also protects against screen capturing, Anti-Keylogger guards against keylogging and clipboard capture. Here’s some more information on the Anti-Keylogger features and protection.
Anti-Keylogger uses heuristic analysis to protect you from the activities of keyloggers, whether the malicious components are currently known or unknown, and does not rely on signature-based protection. This means you don’t need to complete any updates, and it doesn’t matter whether a keylogger has already been registered on a database – the software should protect against it regardless, relying on its behavior as warning. Therefore, Anti-Keylogger works by blocking keyloggers and not by removing them from the system. Anti-Keylogger works all the time, in the background, while you are working or browsing the internet.
Anti-Keylogger offers basic protection against keyloggers but doesn’t include extra security features. It prevents keyloggers from intercepting your keystrokes. It blocks the removal of items from a clipboard by third parties. It blocks the interception of open windows on your screen. It doesn’t act against microphone or webcam capture, nor does it allow for protection against interception of your computer memory or RAM.
Ease of use
The only thing you need to do to provide keylogger protection for your computer is install the software. Anti-Keylogger runs in the background and no configuration is needed to set it up, although you can make adjustments to the set-up to add trusted programs to the white list, and configure the interface.
Help & support
The website for the product has an online manual with details for the effective installation and running of the program. Also on the website is a link to live support - you input your email address and log in. We're not confident this is an effective method of support as the system didn't boot up when we tried.
If you want software that sets up a barrier between your PC and the actions of keyloggers, the Anti-Keylogger program fits the bill. It is easy to use, and it stops keyloggers taking information as you type it on screen. If you want more features and added security extras, consider another package as this provides simple keylogger protection and not much more.
