What are key Loggers?
The definition of a keylogger is "any device or program that captures information from an input device and places the captured data into a file". What this should tell you is that a key logger can take many forms. Regardless of the type, a keylogger generally does one thing; capture the keystrokes from a keyboard.
What is a Hardware Key Logger?
Hardware keyloggers are small devices that are placed inline, between your keyboard and computer. Since they are connected near the back of the computer, which is often hidden from site, these devices are rarely noticed or detected. This easily overlooked device has the power to record hundreds of thousands or millions of keystrokes (depending on storage capacity), including passwords, credit card numbers, or adulterous email and chat conversations.

Can the KeeLog device be Detected by Anti-Virus / Anti-Spyware Software?
NO. Unlike Software logging programs that are easily detected by Anti Virus or other scanning Software, KeeLog devices cannot be detected. This Is Primarily Because The KeeLog device is a hardware device not a software configuration. The only way to detect the device is by physical inspection and as it is at the back of the computer hidden away (and very small and inconspicuous) it will not normally be seen.
Why should I use a KeeLog device when I can use a key logger program available off the internet?
There are several reasons why a software program may not always be the best option. If the target computer is password protected, it will be almost impossible to install a software keylogger. The KeeLog device installs in a few seconds, onto any desktop PC with any operating system. The KeeLog device can be installed when the computer is switched off. It will also pick up passwords used to access the BIOS before boot up.
Does the KeeLog device work on Wireless keyboards?
YES. The KeeLog device should work on wireless keyboards by plugging it between the Wireless receiver and the PS2 port / USB port or USB HUB. The receiver that comes with your wireless keyboard can be USB or PS2. If it is USB (small rectangular plug) you need to choose one of the Keelog USB Keyloggers. If it is PS2 (small round plug) and has two round plugs coming from the receiver (one for mouse, one for keyboard), connect a KeeLog PS2 model between the receiver's keyboard cable and the computer.
Can you connect and disconnect the keylogger when power is up?
For PS2 keyloggers theoretically not (however we haven't heard about any damage so far). For the USB keylogger it's OK to hot-plug the keyboard and logger.
Is it Legal to use a Key Logger?
It is the user's responsibility to obey all effective laws in his/her country, which may or may not prohibit the use of KeeLog products. Neither the Manufacturer nor the Seller takes responsibility for any damage, harm or legal actions caused by the misuse of KeeLog products.
