As a Windows user I have antikeylogger software installed but how effective are key scrambling applications? I mean there are obviously ways around keystroke encryption. Do they at least provide some protection from spy-ware that might make its way on your system? Ive always been told they do, But how much? And what about Unix/Linux based systems is there any anti keyogger software available or features that prevent spyware from infesting them? :scratchhead: :busy:

Thanks I see that some Windows ani-keyloggers apps work on the kernel level and I just discovered a mobile ani-keylogger for Android/iOS called GuardedID Mobile but it's only for enterprise & government. The other topic on that site is strictly about Linux which got thinking about how anti-keyloggers work. Although currently there doesn't appear to be any anti-keylogging software for Mac or Linux. :(

I never found the need to use such software. All I know is what I have read from articles like I posted above. In fact, I don't know anyone who uses keystroke encryption/key scrambling since they practice safe computing which makes the risk almost a non-factor.
