I use this free add-on with Firefox, and virtually every review I've read says it does an excellent job of protecting against keyloggers.
For instance, one review on Bright Hub says they installed the free Anti-Keylogger Tester by firewallleaktester.com and, with keyscrambler disabled, everything that was typed was captured by the tester, but with keyscrambler enabled, only the encrypted gibberish got through.
This Anti-keylogger tester is no longer available so I couldn't test it for myself so, instead, I installed a keylogger add-on by Lipo-Technologies. With Keyscrambler enabled everything I typed, in its original unencrypted state, was captured by the keylogger.
Does this mean keyscrambler is useless, or is it simply because this was a keylogger I installed myself which is intercepting my keystrokes at a different point than would be possible for a keylogger virus?
If anyone could shed any light on this I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
