NextGen AntiKeylogger is a handy application designed to protect your personal data from falling in the wrong hands by preventing the keystrokes from being intercepted by a software keylogger.
Most keyloggers work by capturing the keyboard actions as you enter text into your browser or another application. This action enables the keylogger owner to find out usernames and passwords, credit card information and other private data without the knowledge of the computer user.
This tool intends to prevent the capture by encoding the keystrokes before sending them to the target application. This enables you to change the captured keys into fake characters that cannot be useful for the keylogger.
As the keyloggers use different technologies and methods, this application only allows you to protect your keyboard input from the software keyloggers that have infected your computer.
The interface of the program is easy to use and it requires no further configuration in order to start encrypting the keyboard strokes. It runs in the background and automatically detects the text that is directed to the protected applications.
However, this active interaction with the operating system requires significant resources and you might notice an impact on the other applications when using the program for long sessions. You can bypass this issue by starting it only when you need to use important details such as the credit card number.
The NextGen AntiKeylogger is one of the solutions that should be considered when you need to protect your personal information from keyloggers. However, you should have alternative security solutions on your computer in order to prevent information theft.
