How to fool keyloggers

Keyloggers are widely available on the Internet and can be used by private parties to spy on the computer usage of others.Keystroke logging (often called keylogging) is a diagnostic tool used in software development that captures the user’s keystrokes. keylogger can hide in your system and spy on you and then send the logs to a hacker via e-mail or FTP.

These days Agents spy on you everywhere, in college, in internet cafe, at work, maybe a trojan virus on your home PC which keylogs your passwords and mails it to someone else. If you think you are being logged, then try this:

Whenever u have to type a password, never type the complete password in one go. example If your password is "windows" you should type "ndow" then move cursor to start of the password field using the mouse only, then type "wi" then move cursor to end using the mouse and type "s". This way the logger will record your keystrokes as "ndowwis" instead of "windows".

Oh wow...thats a smart thing one could do.

Somewhere I remember reading someone advising that I type the pwd, backspace and type it again - and that is an obviously dumb thing to do as it would log the backspaces (?)

Anyways, this would work yeah

thnx for posting this...really helpful. but one thing i wanna add here is that u can even enter ur passwords thru virtual keyborad, or else use Browser such as " Avant Browser" which saves ur passwords.

Can we detect a keylogger by going to taskmanager and checkin out the currently running back ground processes?

Gagan said...

nice trick but if you have a good anti virus installed with potentially dangerous softwares enabled you can easily detect Key-loggers !

@ Dan
That was nice Brother!!!!
But Dude this will tell him all the words of our password. & If than he tries to use a Brute Force Method with some sense involved. Than There is a chance that he in the end can hack your Password.

I think using a anti keylogger like "Zemana AntiLogger" is a good option its not heavy either, what you say Bro.????
