What is KEY LOGGER?? - ComradeHUB

A key logger is a type of surveillance software (considered to be either software or spyware) that has the capability to record every keystroke you make to a log file, usually encrypted. A key logger recorder can record instant messages, e-mail, and any information you type at any time using your keyboard..

So whenever you enter anything on your computer with the keyboard it will go to the key logger which secretly records everything you type.

For example Usernames, passwords, credit card details email id.


 

There are two types of key loggers

1.Software key logger
2.Physical Key logger


Software Key logger is a secret program that is either installed or hidden inside a pc to record all the keystrokes. Whereas the physical key logger is a hardware component that is attached to the keyboard or inside the computer hardware system. Hackers install these key loggers in cyber cafes to steal information from the public.
