Cyber criminals are doing everything possible under the Sun in order to steal your passwords and login information for various sites (including your online banking accounts). They make use of special malware called keyloggers to capture your login credentials. Usually, your antivirus software is enough to detect and block any keyloggers, but you can further protect your passwords from being captured by using free KeyScrambler Personal. It is a free software that can scramble (or encrypt) your passwords as you enter them on a webpage. If a keylogger captures anything, it would capture only encrypted passwords which is of no value.
You can download KeyScrambler Personal from the QFX Software website. The download is available in form of a setup program which installs the KeyScrambler kernel and other required programs in Windows. After the installation, you would have to reboot so that Windows can load KeyScrambler kernel. After you have restarted Windows, you would notice a KeyScrambler icon in the notification area which would stay yellow most of the time, but would turn green if a supported application is in focus (like a web browser). The green icon indicates, that that data that your are typing into your web browser is protected from the eyes of keyloggers.
As you switch to your web browser, the KeyScrambler icon turns green. If you type anything in your web browser, on any webpage, you would see that your data is being encrypted first by KeyScrambler and then being decrypted into the webpage. A KeyScrambler notification bar shows on the top of the web browser window displaying how your typed data is being encrypted. This works on all the browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and others.
KeyScrambler Options can be accessed from the notification area icon, by right-clicking on it and then selecting Options. In the Options window, you can choose to run KeyScrambler automatically at Windows boot, set enable/disable hotkey, toggle encryption of the space key and select a position of the KeyScrambler information overlay bar (one that is displayed as you type in your browser).
KeyScrambler uses both standard symmetric-key and asymmetric-key encryption. The algorithm used for symmetric-key encryption is Blowfish (128-bit). The algorithm for asymmetric-key is RSA (1024-bit). Both of these algorithms are very strong and cannot be broken by any keylogger in realtime. KeyScrambler is very useful to defeat the unknown or relatively newer keylogger malware that is possibly not detected by your antivirus or antimalware software. KeyScrambler also comes in a Premium paid edition. The free Personal edition of KeyScrambler works only with the web browsers while the paid Premium edition can work with other applications as well.
