Freeware MyPlanetSoft Anti-Keylogger

Most banks in Europe offer a new service on their Internet websites. When a user has to enter login data on the website, options are displayed to enter the password on the page using a keypad that is displayed on the web page using a Java applet. Instead of having to enter the password on the physical keyboard attached to the PC, users can click on the fields on the password keypad on the website to enter the credentials. This is done mainly to prevent some keyloggers from stealing the password while you log in on your system.

The Anti-Keylogger by MyPlanetSoft does the same thing; only difference is, that its a tool that is started like every other windows program. After the tool is started you simply use the displayed keys to enter your passwords or other data on websites or even local programs.

Protection Details:  MyPlanetSoft Anti-Keylogger (AKLog) will protect you against all system wide keyloggers. Almost all commercial keyloggers fall into this category.

AKLog will not protect you against:

  • Hardware keyloggers -This type of keylogger is attached to the system directly, for instance between the PC and the keyboard, or sometimes even inside the tower. It records the keys entered and either uses internal storage to record them, or uses wireless connections to transfer them to a remote location that records the data.
  • Keyboard drivers keyloggers - it is possible for someone to change your system keyboard driver with a custom one and log the keys.
  • Keyloggers written specially for a given application - these keyloggers make use of knowledge of how a given application works and work only with that particular application

Its a nice little freeware tool that you can download at myplanetsoft.com.

Update: The program has not been updated for a while. Viable alternatives include the free version of SpyShelter which can protect the system from keyloggers, screen capturing and clipboard capturing malware, Anti-keylogger Free which protects against five types of keyloggers, and Keylogger Detector that tries to detect keyloggers that are installed or running on the system.

You can also install free security programs that include anti-keylogging apps. This includes the excellent Anti-Malware Free by Malywarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware Free.

Update: SpyShelter free is no longer available. We have removed the link from the article as a consequence.

Update 2:  The Anti-keylogger Free website is no longer available. It does not appear to be available anymore, and we have removed the link from the article page.
