Editors' review

Keyloggers are programs that hide in the background and record a user's every keystroke, mouse click, and screen image, letting others (such as the boss) see exactly what that user has been doing while at the computer. Long used in high-security applications, keyloggers can help parents, employers, and others who are responsible for others' behavior (and, more to the point, misbehavior) by clearly showing which Web sites and programs a specific user accessed at a specific time. Spyrix Free Keylogger can put that power in your hands. This easy-to-use freeware logs keystrokes and online activity, takes screenshots, and monitors other activities for specific users without their knowledge.

Spyrix has an attractive user interface that won't look out of place in a corporate environment or a home PC. The program opened with its Settings dialog, where we could set options such as running when Windows starts, removing shortcut menus, and other security-related options. We also set a hot-key combo and password to show Spyrix. Under ScreenShot, we could set Spyrix to record an image any time a window changes or something is copied to the clipboard. Spyrix displays all activity in a list view in the upper half of the main window, with specific items such as documents and images displayed in the preview pane below. The program is very easy to use, once you've set things up to your liking, but we recommend being careful when hiding Spyrix since you'll need to remember your hot-key combo and password to access the program in hidden mode. It's not meant to be easy, since a security tool that any smart kid can disable isn't worth the name, is it?

We recommend Spyrix Free Keylogger for parents, business owners, or anyone who provides PC and Internet access, with the potential liability that comes along with it. But we also recommend using it with caution and with an eye to privacy concerns, too, as we do with any software that monitors user activity. Used properly, Spyrix Free Keylogger can be an invaluable tool for monitoring and enforcing PC access policies at home and at work.

    "Remote monitoring is cool!"

    February 12, 2014   |   By Johnskate9

    Version: Spyrix Free Keylogger 4.0.4

    Pros

    I tested several keyloggers but this program is the only freeware that allows remote monitoring through web account!!! That's what differs it from other. I'm very happy with it! I control all actions on my computer when I'm away.

    "Free version is useless"

    January 29, 2014   |   By kev946

    Version: Spyrix Free Keylogger 4.0

    Pros

    No problems downloading or installing

    Cons

    Contrary to the description above, remote monitoring is not free, you have to buy the pay version. Also, it's not undetectable because it puts short cuts on you desk top, start menu, task bar etc. with the words "key stroke logger". Unless you get the pay version, then no obvious shortcuts every where.
    After I installed it and set it up I manually deleted all of the short cuts I could find for it, and now the hot-key combo does not work so I can't even open it.

    Summary

    The free version is useless, now I have to figure out how to completely delete it from my system. This should just be marketed as a paid program, and the description of the free version is wrong and deceptive.

    "Excellent keylogger!!!"

    October 18, 2013   |   By PrashantGogoi

    Version: Spyrix Free Keylogger 3.6

    Pros

    - Complete functionality
    - Stealth
    - Various types of logging
    - Per user logging

    Cons

    - No encryption

    Summary

    One of the most complete keyloggers in terms of functionality. For an average user, the free version offering keyboard and screenshot logging is more than sufficient.
    It is completely stealth and can be invoked by a pre defined shortcut/keyword. Keyboard, Screenshot, Webcam, IMs, Alerts, Blocked Sites, Sites Visited, User Activity and Delivery Options are the logging options defined. A very useful functionality is that logging can be recorded user wise. The UI is quite user friendly and looks good.
    Tried it with a few IMs, Browsers and other programs and it works pretty much as I expected it to; and the info recorded was exactly what I needed.
    The free version should be enough for most users, though power users, might need the extra functionality.
    Kudos to the dev team for an excellent piece of software!!!
