Actual Keylogger

CNET Editors' review

Who says you can't run a spy operation on the cheap? Actual Keylogger lets you record every keystroke typed on a computer, and it doesn't cost a cent. It can't snap screenshots or automatically e-mail reports, but it's decently equipped and surprisingly convenient for a freeware program. It's reasonably stealthy, too. You can conceal its folder, disable its record in the Add/Remove Programs dialog, hide its shortcuts, encrypt its logs and password-protect its settings. Unfortunately, the program process itself is unprotected, and a savvy user could easily spot it and stop it. But for no-cost surveillance of an easy target, Actual Keylogger is hard to beat.

    "People Are Ridiculous"

    March 3, 2014  |   By Lesslog

    Version: Actual Keylogger 2.4

    Pros

    Being an actual Keylogger for use to spy on the loved ones.

    Cons

    Kinda terrible GUI, but not much bad to say.

    Summary

    People think their Antiviruses are thinking these are bad programs when the companies are SUPPOSED to add False-positives (ex: Keyloggers, RAT's, Botnet Builders ect) to their databases. Therefore why we must Crypt our programs to make sure they're not detected so that people don't complain about their Falseness that they receive.

    "Unsearchable, can't uninstall, no support, NO DOWNLOAD."

    November 4, 2011  |   By Madreloca111

    Version: Actual Keylogger 2.4

    Pros

    A bit to stealthy for me.

    Cons

    Once installed, I am unable to find or open this program. It does me no good If I can't open it. The hot keys do nothing. I can not uninstall ans since I installed it, another app installer_no_upload_silent is running and keeps trying to connect to the internet. Tried to contact support and no reply was made.

    Summary

    I do not trust this software. Do not bother with it, to be on the safe side. Wish I hadn't. No way to find it, no way to uninstall, no support, NO DOWNLOAD.

    "Not sure what everyone is complaining about"

    July 14, 2011  |   By DanTrice1

    Version: Actual Keylogger 2.4

    Pros

    1. It's free
    2. Simple to use
    3. Works great for what it's intended for

    Cons

    1. some issues on loading and reloading it unsuccessfully.

    Summary

    Not sure why some are saying it's not free, yes, they ASK you to buy it, but it is not mandatory. They got to make some money somehow. For those complaining that it's a virus.... well, any program that runs in the background, recording all your key strokes, that someone can later access, I'd personally be worried if all kinds of red flags weren't popping up when you install it. It fundamentally is a virus, that you have the password to.I have used this program for a few years now with minimal issues and has served it's purpose to bust people using my system inappropriately. No legitimate complaints here.

    None - I won't install a virus

    "Not even deserving of ONE star!"

    March 17, 2011  |   By SavageSiren

    Version: Actual Keylogger 2.4

    Pros

    It's an actual keylogger, yes.

    Cons

    It's categorized as "free", however, it's only a 40 minute free trial.

    Summary

    Very misleading as it's advertised as "free" yet simply is NOT. Lies and deception is an abhorrent way to run a business! }=(

    "In the Wrong Category: NOT FREE $60 after trial"

    February 26, 2011  |   By MarkLegion

    Version: Actual Keylogger 2.4

    Pros

    None found. Wouldn't install since AVG kept detecting it.

    Cons

    NOT FREE. Did I mention it's not free software? I wouldn't trust this software since the developers called it free and it's not free. Also, there's no guarantee that any security software updated wouldn't find it.

    Summary

    Don't bother.
