They do their nasty work by stealthily monitoring your keystrokes as you type. They then send a digital “copy” of your keystrokes “back home” to a hacker.
Once he has your stolen info in hand, the hacker can easily use it to steal your identity or log in to to your financial accounts and steal your money.
A thorough malware scan and removal process like the one detailed in this post can remove most keyloggers from your system, but some of the newer keylogger malware out there can be very hard to detect and remove.
That’s why it’s always good to have a second layer of protection against this insidious form of malware running on your PC at all times.
There are several supplemental security apps that can add that second layer of protection, but the one I use and recommend is Zemana AntiLogger.
Zemana AntiLogger protects your personal and financial information from any keyloggers that might happen to make their way onto your system by encrypting your keystrokes. That means even if a hacker is able to intercept your keystrokes with a keylogger, the stolen information will be useless to him because he won’t be able to read it.
But protection against keyloggers isn’t Zemana AntiLogger’s only claim to fame. It also prevents malware from stealthily capturing screenshots depicting whatever is displayed on your computer screen and sending them to a hacker over the Internet. In other words, you get double protection.
What’s more, there are other benefits as well, even in the free version of the software.
I’ve used Zemana AntiLogger for some time now, and I can tell you that it does exactly what it claims to do. It really will help protect you from the dangers of keyloggers and screenloggers.
Bottom line: Keyloggers pose perhaps the most serious threat of all the various forms of malware. Frequent malware scans and the constant use of Zemana AntiLogger can help protect you and your precious personal and financial information from those threats.
You can download the free version of Zemana AntiLogger at the Zemana website. Give it a try!
