"IE9 and KeyScrambler play nice together...."

May 21, 2011  |  By brandoncreer

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.8.0.1

Pros

Works in the background without invasion.

Cons

Doesn't seem to play nice with Chrome or Firefox thus far according to my runs with it.

Summary

IE user's install it! It will encrypt your keystrokes without complications or notice. Firefox and Chrome user's will not experience a "slick" interface at all.

"If You Use Firefox Don't Bother"

May 16, 2011  |  By wwgorman

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.8.0.1

Pros

None that are apparent.

Cons

This product will not work with Firefox so don't even bother to download it. I was using an earlier version of this product which "worked" just fine (How did I know-----I didn't except for the icon in the tray window).

Summary

This product does not work with Firefox 3 or 4.

"Works well most of the time."

May 10, 2011  |  By samirnp

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.8.0.1

Pros

It doesn't have any flashy graphics to irritate you, so that's great, IMO. It has a little green pop up at top that shows the scrambled string that is used to mask what you type in real time and a red error message when it is malfunctioning.

Cons

Sometimes, though rare, it glitches and inserts the masked string for what I actually want to type. For example, if I type "hello" it might come out as "kdf/u" on the screen. It tends to happen when my computer is running slow and I type quickly.

Summary

Overall I like this program. I would suggest using it if you are paranoid about keyloggers or if you work with sensitive information. I'm not a computer scientist, so I don't know if it actually works.

"Decent product but my computer may be too slow"

May 09, 2011  |  By iberg

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.8.0.1

Pros

Scrambles what you type and hopefully that will fool keyloggers (bit I have no way to test it).

Cons

Sometimes it shows the scramble letters instead of what I really typed if my computer is running slow or I type too fast (Pentium 4 2.0 GHz Win Xp)

Summary

I prefer using it despite the occasional scramble letters when FireFox hogs too much CPU.

"Seems to do its job flawlessly"

May 08, 2011  |  By deseretdad

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.8.0.1

Pros

Seems to work as described.

Cons

None that I can see.

Summary

The only time I know it is even running is when I am using IE and it tells me I am protected. Any way I can secure myself is good, free makes it even better.

"Good software"

May 08, 2011  |  By kenny555

 |  Version: KeyScrambler Personal 2.8.0.1

Pros

Doesn't cause any conflicts, as far as I can see. Works with most websites, and sign in apps.

Cons

none that i know of, and I've been using it for years.

Summary

According to the inset, it scrambles what I'm typing. I assume if anybody is monitoring they can't unscramble it. You basically have to take their word that it's doing the job. It doesn't hurt to have it anyway.
