Editors' Review

KeyScrambler Personal encrypts your keystrokes in a wide variety of supported programs, so you can avoid tracking by keylogging software. With this tool in place, you can use your computer just as you always have, and you won't have to worry about someone keeping tabs on you or gaining access to your sensitive information.

Pros

Lots of programs: This app works with all major browsers, as well as more than 200 other apps. That means it's likely you can enjoy the privacy it provides without changing the way you use the computer or restricting your activity in any way.

Innovative interface: While it does most of its work in the background, this app also has an innovative, three-part interface to provide you with easy access to all program features. When you start typing in a supported app or browser, you'll see a banner across the top of the active window that shows the jumbled text that's being recorded as you're typing. There is also a tray icon that you can use to turn the program on and off and also to see when the program is active. Right-clicking this icon lets you open the Options dialog, where you can set a hotkey for turning the app on and off, decide which parts of the interface you want to show up, and decide whether to encrypt the space bar.

Cons

Hidden manual: There is a link to a manual when you first download this program, but it takes you to a page that doesn't exist. You can find the actual manual, however, if you go to the main product page for the app and follow the link there.

Bottom Line

KeyScrambler Personal is a good tool for evading keyloggers, and it does not interfere with your use of any other programs on your computer.

"Free Verson does not cover IE"

October 30, 2014  |  By hughesj

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 3.5

Pros

Free, Seems to work well on supported applications.

Cons

On the Version Comparison site ( http://www.qfxsoftware.com/ks-windows/which-keyscrambler.htm ) IE is listed as a supported application but on my windows 7 Pro system it does not work in IE 11.

Summary

Could be better if it worked in IE 11.
