Keystroke Logging and Recording

Keystroke Spy's keystroke logger allows you to record all keystrokes users type while using your computer. All logged keystrokes are viewable in their raw format, displaying the keys as they were typed, and can be formatted for easy viewing. Keystroke Spy offers the following features that make keystroke logging a simple task:
  • Categorized and Detailed Log Storage
    All logs contain a timestamp indicating when the keystrokes were made, what window the keystrokes were typed in, the window owner, and lastly the username of the user who actually typed the keystrokes.

  • Flaggable Log Entries
    Logs can be flagged for easy viewing. Logs can be flagged by application used, window title, user that typed the keystrokes, and date.

  • Log Entry Formatting
    Logs can be formatted so you can read the logs exactly as the user meant them to be read. Backspaces are applied, and system keystrokes are applied and hidden.

  • Automatic Visual Screenshot Playback
    Keystroke Spy's screenshot viewer provides visual proof of user activities, and gives you the ability to playback all screenshots recorded in a video-like automatic slideshow. Screenshots can be searched and archived for easy viewing and management.

  • Linked Screenshots in Keystroke Logs
    Keystroke Spy takes the guesswork out of connecting screenshots captured with keystroke logs by automatically displaying relevant and related screenshots with keystroke logs as you are viewing them.
Below are some of the many activities that can be recorded by Keystroke Spy.
  • Chat and Email Messages Sent

Alert Notifications, Reporting, and Filtering

Keystroke Spy not only logs keystrokes, but it can also email you when specific phrases are typed - such as addresses or names, it can send you keystroke log reports, and it can be set to log only specific application activities.

  • Application Filtering
    Keystroke Spy allows you to control what keystrokes are logged. Keystroke Spy can be set to only log keystrokes typed in specific applications and windows that you indicate.

  • Email Log Delivery
    Keystroke Spy allows you to keep an eye on your computer from a remote location by sending email activity logs of all keystrokes typed, along with a screenshot of the user's desktop, at set time intervals.

  • Keyword Notification Alerts
    Keystroke Spy can be configured to send you email notifications when a user types a trigger keyword - such as an address, password, phone number, name, etc. A screenshot of the offending activity can be attached to the alert mail as well.

Security and Stealth

Keystroke Spy has a large array of security and stealth features. Keystroke Spy is undetectable under all Windows versions and can circumvent popular third-party "spyware" detectors. Keystroke Spy has many useful security features like log file encryption, log file backdating, optional startup warnings, and much more.

  • Stealth-Mode
    Keystroke Spy can run totally in stealth; that is, it is virtually undetectable to the user. Keystroke Spy will NOT show up in the task manager under Windows - at all. Keystroke Spy does not appear in registry and Windows startup utilities while it is running, either.

  • Log File Encryption
    Keystroke Spy has a built in encryption option that allows you to have all your Keystroke Spy activity logs encrypted so others cannot stumble across Keystroke Spy's logs or read them without using Keystroke Spy's protected log viewer.

  • Security Settings
    Toggle various Windows security settings to make it harder for users to trace and bypass Keystroke Spy - such as the ability to disable the system clock's time/date settings, or to access the Windows task manager.

  • Spyware Detector Disabling
    Configure Keystroke Spy to disable popular spyware detectors that may interfere or detect Keystroke Spy running.

  • Log File Backdating
    Keystroke Spy can be configured to backdate all log files it creates so that they appear older than they really are. This will make it impossible for users to find log files by performing system searches for most recently modified files.

  • Warning Screen
    Display a splash screen which alerts users they are being monitored by the Keystroke Spy software (totally optional).

  • Password Protection
    Keystroke Spy is password protected to prevent easy monitoring termination and option changes.

  • Idle Timeout
    Keystroke Spy will stop logging when the user is inactive for a specified amount of time, when they are active again Keystroke Spy resumes logging.

  • Configurable Log Location
    You can set Keystroke Spy to store logs in any specific directory you want - including network shared folders.

  • AutoClear
    You can set Keystroke Spy to clear your keystroke logs every xxx number of keystrokes entered.

  • Configurable Stealth Mode Hotkey
    Keystroke Spy allows you to configure its hotkey pattern to whatever key combination you want - making it harder for others to stumble across Keystroke Spy!
