At some point in time we have all felt cheated or let down by people who we thought we could trust, okay at least some of us have. In the internet age it has become increasingly difficult for people to trust each other. With the kind of content available to children online, parents feel insecure about what their child is checking online and whom they are meeting online. Even though social networking has been the buzzword of the decade because of the kind of connect it enables people to have sitting in the comfort of their bed rooms, it is no secret that social networking has also had a role to play in some of the most disturbing crimes committed during the past decade.
Couples want to spy on their partners, business organizations want to ensure their employees are working at the workplace and not facebooking and networking with friends and family. Its incredible that we live in a society that offers more problems as solutions to problems, in essence the solution solves the problem but messes with your mind.
The need of the hour was a software/hardware that could give everyone access to the information they so desperately seek. The management seeks their employee’s attention, the WAGs (wives and girlfriends) seek to know their partner’s whereabouts, parents seek their child’s safety. I don’t intend to turn this into a heady cocktail of – Right v/s Wrong, I will leave that for your conscious to decide. If you fall in one of the above mentioned categories then without further adieu here is the answer to your spying needs – its called Keystroke Logging, or Keylogging for the nerds.
A Keylogger can be either a hardware or a software connected to your computer’s keyboard and equipped with the ability to record/log every keystroke you hit, which roughly translates to – knowing what your employee’s are surfing during work hours, knowing where your boyfriend was late last night and knowing what your kids have been up to during vacations.
While a hardware Keylogger is easily detectable its software contemporaries are way too smart, invisible to everyone except of course the person who is tracking/monitoring all activities on a computer. And while there are a number of Keyloggers available in the market, my personal favorite is the Free Keylogger from IwantSoft. What makes me vote in favor of free Keylogger isn’t just the fact that its free. It’s pretty-freaking-awesome. A solution that provides everything you would want from a Keylogger and then add the fact that its freeware, that for me makes this tool stand out from the rest of them.
Here is the link to – free Keylogger from Iwantsoft – try it out and let us know if you think there is a better freely available tool then this one.
End User Warning : Using a Keylogging software can have social, ethical and even legal repercussions, how you use it is entirely your discretion. In its defense, it can at best be described as a cost effective solution to your personal and business requirements.
