Keyloggers, the short form for Keystroke Loggers, are the spyware software, which reside in your computer to monitor your keyboard activities and record it with a purpose to pass this information to the installer of the keylogger.
Often Keyloggers are installed for illegitimate activities and result in frauds and scam. But there are some legit uses also associated with Keylogger software. For instance, sometimes, a company might want to know, what their employees are upto while surfing the net. Or whether they are not passing the sensitive information to their competitors.
Whatever be the case, it is a pain in the ass for the person, whose keystrokes are being logged. And for them, there are anti keylogger software. Antikeylogger software applications work on various algorithms depending upon the type of keyloggers they are designed to work against.
