Keyloggers are a type of monitoring software designed to record keystrokes made by a user. Keystroke loggers record the information you type into a website or application and send it back to a third party.

While the programs themselves are legal, with many designed to allow employers to oversee the use of their computers, keyloggers are most often used for stealing passwords and other confidential information. Criminals use keyloggers to steal details like usernames and passwords which they can then use or sell.

Tricerion’s authentication solution, SafeLogin™, protects against keylogging as well as a large number of the common attack vectors faced by login systems. Ask our team for a demonstration →
