I need a good invisible keylogger, free, would be password protected - that will run in true stealth mode. One that you can't see in the system tray.

The ones I am finding want you to pay for them to get these features. Surely there must be a freeware version out there, but I'm just not finding it...

Any help appreciated!
Thanks!

Mmmm, me thinks discussing such topics on this forum is illegal.

I think it would violate this rule.

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

While the majority of us do not care for keyloggers, it is not a violation of the forum rules

I agree w/ garmanma on this. A keylogger is most definantly not illegal software by any means. Unfortunately, sometimes we may have to snoop a wee bit if a person is suspected of doing something they shouldn't be. In the past I used Cyberpatrol for several years, & it had a log that you could view.

I guess maybe the bottom line would be - if you don't have anything to hide, then a snooping pgm. shouldn't be a problem for you.

One thought to consider in the lack of replies to your request for keylogger software. This site is focused maily on privacy and security of computers. Whereas keyloggers are the antithisis of that. So large is what we are mostly about. So if you don't get much feedback that is one thing to consider.

I find that thinking sort of odd...I mean, look at it this way. If you own the pc, it is in your house/business/etc., and another individual is using it for suspicious activities, what are you supposed to do? Just look the other way & hope it all works out? I know, this is a thin line approach, but at times there isn't much of an option.

Most businesses follow this approach all the time, as well as schools/libraries/other. You have to keep the systems safe somehow... Unfortunately, this is the society that we live in...

I do appreciate all the replies, & I am not trying to make any enemies here, believe me. I personally wouldn't even be considering this software, but I find myself in a situation where I either do this, or restrict the person from all pc use. So, I need to be sure of what I suspect before I step in with disciplinary action.

Adding to what Animal has already advised.

While keylogging, surveillance and monitoring programs can have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user, business IT tech or administrator has knowingly installed them, there can be potential legal ramifications when assisting someone with installing or removing these types of programs. Even a recommendation could be construed as a gray area some attorneys would not hesitate to explore in order to seek successful litigation.

As such, most security forums will hesitate to get involved. A simple Google search should yield the information you seek without jeopardizing a responder.

Our response is not intended to imply that any specific situation invokes legal concerns, but merely that it is impossible for us to make the determination as to the computer's ownership and who has what authority in any given situation.

Thank you for understanding.
