[Review] KeyScrambler (All Versions)

The Good :


- Very easy to use.
- Encrypt your keystrokes in a visual manner.
- Quite light on the system.

The Bad :


- The personal (free) version allow 3 browsers (no other apps) to be protected (IE, Firefox and Flock). - Prices a bit high (especially the premium version).
- Only the apps selected by the developers are protected, no way to add yours.

KeyScrambler is a security software designated as an "Anti-logger" , effectively some malwares called "keyloggers" sit on your system and record everything you type on your keyboard in a log and then transmit it to someone who will appreciates to get your bank account's username and password or your credit card's credentials...

This kind of malwares are very silent and a common user will never know he is its victim.

What makes KeyScrambler different than other Anti-loggers (like Zemana Anti-logger, Spyshelter, etc...) is that it just encrypt your keystroke with random characters instead of detecting/removing the keylogger.

It means that even you are victim of an keylogger, anything you type is unreadable by the attacker, the log will just show random characters without any meaning.

How it works (in details)

ok, now that you understand how it works, lets go for a tour:


Resources Usage

2 processes on x64 system (one for x86 the other for x64)

The Encryption

As you can see on the screenshot, everything you will type is encrypted, and you can see how in the green small window.
You can set up the location of the window in the options.

Options

keyscrambler is a minimalist software so you will have few options.

- Display tab: here you set the position of the window

Advanced tab: Here some options available only for the Premium version, the most interesting is the Windows Logon protection.

That is all,yes it was fast but Keyscrambler is very simple in its concept but very efficient on its use.

I Highly recommend it if you are an aficionados of online banking or online shopping !

Thanks
