Here are the 5 smart ways to protect your computer from keyloggers:



#1 Encrypt Keystrokes


Keystroke encryption is a great way to protect your sensitive information from the keylogger programs since it works by recording keystrokes. There are many keystroke encryption tools available, some of them are mentioned below.

  • KeyScrambler

It is a very good keystroke encryption tool that can really protect your sensitive information from getting into wrong hands. Blowfish and RSA algorithms in the KeyScrambler provides a strong protection against keyloggers.

How KeyScrambler Works: When a user starts typing, KeyScrambler will start encrypting each character instantly at the keyboard driver level, deep in the Windows kernel. That is, if a keylogger is running on the same computer, all the key logs will be some nonsense!

  • Zemana AntiLogger

Once installed, Zemana AntiLogger will encrypt all of the information you type. It is just like the KeyScrambler, but the free version of Zemana AntiLogger is much better than the free version of KeyScrambler.

The premium version of Zemana AntiLogger is better than KeyScrambler. Because it provides some extra features such as malware detection, behaviour-based protection, and IntelliGuard.

How Zemana AntiLogger Works: It works like the KeyScrambler program but has more additional features.




#2 Use AntiVirus


Antivirus is a must have application for every computer. There are many AntiVirus tools available, choose a suitable one according to your requirements and configuration.

Here are some AntiViruses that I personally like to use:

  • Panda Cloud AntiVirus:

The reason I like Panda Cloud AntiVirus is because it is so user-friendly. And the biggest advantage of using such cloud-based antivirus programs is that the user don't have to update virus databases.

The Free version of Panda Cloud AntiVirus provides some great and useful features such as USB protection and Rescue Kit.

Download Panda Cloud AntiVirus


I think, I don't have to tell you something about Kaspersky. Kaspersky is always on the top antiviruses list. One thing I noticed about Kaspersky is they don't offer a free version! Only the 30-day trial versions are available for free.

Anyway, if you are interested in trying Kaspersky AntiVirus, go ahead, I highly recommend it.

Download Kaspersky AntiVirus

#3 Use Firewall


Yes, you read that right. use a Firewall. Since the keyloggers have the ability to send recorded logs to the server, the best way to block such transmissions is by using Firewalls. There are a lot of software Firewalls on the web, most of them are free. If you don't know any firewall applications, use any of the below-mentioned tools.


  • ZoneAlarm Free Firewall:

#4 Use Password Manager


Saving your password is a good idea to protect your web accounts from hackers. Wait.... are you going to save your login credentials in the web browser? If you are, don't do it, buddy. It is not safe as you think.

So what I'm recommending to you is the "LastPass Password Manager". It is free to use and secure as hell.

Now let's talk about it.


  • LastPass:

LastPass Password Manager

LastPass is an award-winning password manager that has many useful features such as, automatic form filler and random password generator. According to me, it is a must have tool not only for protecting your login credentials but also for a hassle free browsing experience.
