Firefox Addon To Prevent Keyloggers by Encrypting KeyStrokes

Keyloggers or keystroke logging softwares are used by hackers to secretly monitor and capture all keystrokes, mouse clicks, passwords,credit card details,visited web pages,sent emails and quite more.Modern key loggers can even capture screenshots or videos of your computer screen at regular intervals to monitor your activity.Most of these keyboard loggers remain invisible in the task manager and will never slow down your system as in case of spywares.Due to this,neither you nor your favorite antivirus will ever notice the presence of such programs.


I’ve prevously shared with you a software which helps you prevent keyloggers from logging keyboard inputs.But if you are using Firefox then there is an absolutely cool firefox addon which encrypts your keystrokes at the kernel driver level to protect your information from keyloggers.

How Keyscrambler works.

When you type on your keyboard, the keys travel along a path within the operating system before it arrives at your browser. Keyloggers plant themselves along this path and observe and record your keystrokes. The collected information is then sent to the criminals who will use it to steal from you.

This Firefox Anti Keylogger addon defeats keyloggers by encrypting your keystrokes at the keyboard driver level, deep within the operating system. When the encrypted keystrokes reach your browser, KeyScrambler then decrypts them so you see exactly the keys you’ve typed. Keyloggers can only record the encrypted keys, which are completely indecipherable.
