"Effective and simple"

August 15, 2010  |  By lester46

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

Runs in background. Unobtrusive.

Cons

Nothing to report.

Summary

I like the software because it does what it says it will do. I also like the fact that I can tell its working by seeing the green banner and the actual encrypted characters.

"Works, for the most part"

June 24, 2010  |  By proreview1

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

I tested this against Anti-Keylogger Tester and it seems to work well scrambling the typed keystroke. Anti-Keylogger Tester captured the encrypted keys only.
- Transparency of use is also commended.

Cons

- Support is non-existent. They never even replied to pre-sales questions.
- Login password to XP was encrypted (causing mysterious login failures).
- Poor documentation of features.
- Doesn't work well side-by-side with keyboard macros.

Summary

It's relatively good for what it does - scrambling keystrokes. However, the program seems to be buggy. It caused a real scare when my XP password was not recognized. As it turns out the software was passing encrypted keys to XP Login screen (when it shouldn't have since the Personal version only supposed to work on IE & Firefox).

This seems to be a product with no real support behind it. Unless that changes, I am hesitant to upgrade to the Premium or Professional version. They also do not have trial version for the Premium/Pro version.

"Quite good - effective and reliable product."

June 15, 2010  |  By sirzig

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

Does what it claims to do, which is to encrypt your personal information as you complete forms on the net.

Cons

Works without a problem with FireFox, but I can't get it working with IE 8. Tried numerous ininstalls and reinstalls to no avail.

Summary

Give it a try, see what you think. Like it, keep it! Dislike it, turf it! Despite difficulties with IE 8 I'm keeping it for FireFox, which, at the end of the day, is a far superior web browser...

"Ingenious Yet Buggy"

June 08, 2010  |  By ACLeeXIII

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

KeyScrambler is incredibly easy to use and is effective for what it does.
The Pro version works with all sorts of programs, including World of Warcraft - where keyloggers are notorious for stealing passwords.

Cons

KeyScrambler is buggy.

Summary

Sometimes what you type is incorrectly decrypted, and thus, what comes out on the screen is gibberish. This happens particularly with encrypted web pages and on World of Warcraft. Once the kinks are worked out, this has the potential to be a revolutionary, phenomenal program. I use it a lot - that is, when it decides to behave and not do strange things to me.

"Wouldn't feel safe without it"

May 26, 2010  |  By ms3347

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

quiet and unobtrusive

Cons

sometimes have to wait a while for it to be updated if a new version of f/f browser is launched

Summary

I've been using this programme for a 2-3 of years now and had no problemswith it. On a couple of occasions when i've had problems with my pc my isp technical help has attempted to work on my system remotely and when i was asked to input info my end they could not get achieve anything until i disabled keyscrambler so yes i think it does an excellent job.

"excellent program; no problems activating it...."

May 17, 2010  |  By dannyringo

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

At the top left corner of the screen it shows how it is encrypting every keystroke you make...It come out jibberish....Updates regularly to improve encryption....

Cons

I have only noticed it once and a while, but I think it is from me typing so fast that it suddenly freezes up for a second....I can live with it..

Summary

This program with Microsoft Security Essentials, Advanced Systemcare Free, Mozilla Firefox and Hotspot Shield make a total system for a WiFi laptop at a coffee shop that has an open system....Consider it as hardened as a MAC/FBI computer~! I have tried to have it Hacked at "Shields Up" and they said:" This is very unusual for a Windows based program to act this way....I was totally UNHACKABLE~! and totally invisable~!"

So Key Scrambler is one tool in the many to harden your laptop, much like an aircraft that is flying from the U.S. to France...They have many circuits to protect the plane..If one fails, another takes over....

"Is it working?"

May 17, 2010  |  By daviddreghorn

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.6

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

I like to know if something is aactually working, and this wont tell me

Summary

I keep getting an error warning and the image/icon on the bottom right for the programme says I am not in a protected application. I cant find any settings to change that will change this.

We have to take a lot on faith when it comes to this programme, and I am not sure that is a good idea
