Free Keylogger is a small piece of software that monitors and records keystrokes at preset intervals or on a constant basis. This sort of utility has nearly limitless specific functionality, and it can be used in a number of scenarios related both to security and peace-of-mind.

Whenever you decide that you need a new piece of software, it's always a good idea to attempt to find a free version that will give you a good idea of what to expect from more professional tools. In some cases, the free version is more than sufficient for all your needs. If you're looking for one such app in the field of keystroke monitoring, Free Keylogger is the way to go. It hides in the background of your system and records every key pressed by every individual user. The tool is quite useful, and it provides simple utility that can be employed by users of nearly any experience level.

The main function of Free Keylogger is exactly what the name of the software implies. It remains inactive in your system in the background, and whenever a key is pressed, it logs the key and the time. That information is then saved to your hard drive for later use. While some of the information might be inconclusive, you can at least get a sense of whether or not your suspicions were warranted.

When you want to unhide or hide the app, you can toggle its status with a hotkey that you set for your own security. The hotkey is typically a series of several keys that must be pressed simultaneously, which prevents anyone from accidentally unhiding the software. The last thing you want to do is let your targets know they are being monitored, because that will cause their behavior to change before you can find anything out.

If you're a parent, you can take advantage of the power of this app to monitor your children's internet activity. If you're a boss to many employees, you can use the app to make sure your subordinates don't misuse their computers.

Unfortunately, the website that released the software is presented in broken English, and it offers little in the way of reassurances that the software is ethically sound. It's not difficult to see how this software could easily fall into an ethical grey area. For instance, monitoring people without their consent can be a huge invasion of privacy, so be cautious when using this tool.

Those who need a free way to record everything that happens on their PC should certainly consider Free Keylogger. In terms of the most innocuous use for the software, it can maintain a record of everything you type that will act as an archive in the event of an accidental deletion. The free and consistent upgrades for the software make it worth trying out.

The Free Keylogger is a security measure you can use on any computer you have control of. These programs install on any computer to find out what the user is typing, and you can read back that information privately. These programs are often used in offices to prevent workers from being off-task, and the program is helpful in making sure kids are using their computers appropriately.

The Pros Of Using A Keylogger

  • The Keylogger is easy to install securely and secretly. The people who use the computer will not know that you have downloaded the program.
  • You set up the program to send you information from the keyboard privately.
  • The program runs constantly. There is not a single keystroke that the program does not pick up. You get all the information for the computer you are monitoring.
  • The program runs silently on the computer. You do not have to worry about the user finding out the program has been downloaded.

The Cons Of Using A Keylogger

  • The Keylogger is designed to collect information from another computer. You only get the information in large packets. You need to make sure you are ready to sift through the information because the program does not do this for you.
  • You must gain access to the monitored computer if you have a problem with the program. This can be problematic if you have installed the software secretly.
  • The Keylogger can be found if people know where to look. Your secrecy is not guaranteed by the program in any way.

You can monitor your employees when they are at work, or you can monitor your child when you give them their own computer. Keyloggers help with security, but keyloggers can breed distrust is people find out about them.
