Editors' Review

This program is called Kid-Key-Lock, but it could just as easily be called Cat-Key-Lock. It was just a few days ago that we came back to our computer to find that our cat had added several letters and numbers and 15 pages of carriage returns to a document that we had been working on. Whether you have a curious toddler or an oblivious feline, Kid-Key-Lock can keep your computer safe from unwanted keyboard and mouse input.

The program appears as an icon in the system tray, and you can access the setup menu by right-clicking on it. From there, there are several options for customizing Kid-Key-Lock's functions. You can lock various mouse buttons, the mouse wheel, and double-clicking, and there are four levels of keyboard locking: system key combinations; all keys except characters, space, Enter, and arrow keys; all keys except characters, space, and Enter; or all keys on the keyboard. When only the keyboard is locked, you can click on the program's icon to unlock it; when the mouse is also locked, you can type a password (which the program will display) in order to unlock. The program also accepts one command line parameter that can be used if the password has been forgotten. A built-in Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, Kid-Key-Lock is nothing fancy, but it is an effective way to keep kids, cats, and anyone else who can't read from composing their magnum opus of gibberish.

Kid-Key-Lock installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to everyone.

"Very Nice Software"

January 21, 2015

 |  Version: Kid Key Lock 2.3

Pros

as a father with a son that cant keep his hands off of my keyboard this is a real life-saver.

Cons

becareful as others mentioned this does come with the babylon malware, but its removable if you do a scan with malwarebytes after installation. or if you have the pro version, it'll let you install KKL and block the installation of babylon

"Comes with malware."

June 02, 2014  |  By smtamer

 |  Version: Kid Key Lock 2.3

Pros

Installs quickly, does what it says it will do... it intercepts all keyboard actions, and blocks the keys that you specify (so little fingers can't get you into trouble while playing).

Cons

I installed it on two computers and both were infected with the Trovi browser hijack. Bleepingcomputer.com has a nice fix, but wow what a frustration!

Summary

Not worth it.
