Editors' Review

You've secured your PC against viruses and malware, installed strong firewalls, and otherwise done what you can to protect your data and your privacy. What about keystroke logging, aka keylogging? That's where hackers surreptitiously record every keystroke you make. Passwords, usernames, credit card numbers, security codes, and private conversations are all vulnerable to keylogging. Help is available in the form of anti-keylogging tools like Zemana's AntiLogger, which is now offered as an easy-to-use freeware edition for home users. AntiLogger Free detects and foils actual attempts to hack into your system and monitor your activities. Unlike many security apps, it works with your antivirus solution, not against it.

AntiLogger Free's user interface is extremely simple, listing only one installed module, Keyboard Protection, with a sliding On button indicating that protection is active. A system tray icon opens the interface when it's minimized, which is most of the time. There's no Help button, but clicking the Feedback or Bug Report links opened the developer's site. AntiLogger Free automatically checks for updates but lets you choose if, when, and how to install them in the program's Settings, which also configures basic options and proxy connections (if required). You don't have to do anything to use AntiLogger Free, unless it detects suspicious activity. Unlike typical anti-malware tools that scan your system based on an updated definition, AntiLogger Free analyzes your system's behavior and shuts down any suspicious activity it detects, simultaneously issuing a notification that lets you Allow or Block the activity. If you're fortunate, you won't get an alert, but that doesn't mean AntiLogger Free isn't doing its job. The program's Web site shows what the alerts you hope you don't get look like, along with information about what the software does and how it does it.

AntiLogger Free is easy to use, light on resources, and addresses a huge vulnerability affecting millions of users. It's free, so try it yourself. You might be glad you did, which sure beats being sorry you didn't!

"Superb compliment to internet security suite software!"

November 13, 2012  |  By zeroday1

 |  Version: Zemana AntiLogger Free 1.0.0.833

Pros

This product really does fill in the gaps it boasts of and true to its premise, its one of the few products of its kind that really protects the other aspects of a computer system that may otherwise be left vulnerable by other security suites that claim to protect the entire system.

Key features:

*Anti-Keylogging

*Anti-Screen logging

*Anti-Webcam logging

*Anti-Clipboard logging

*System Defense Module/Protects Registry & RAM

Cons

The only downside to this software, which I was able to confirm with a company rep, is that it doesn't protect the MBR from infiltration.

However, I'm sure that this is something that the folks at Zemana will take seriously, since security is an ever-growing concern these days and therefore requires constant vigilance of new threats so as to come up with rigorous solutions.

The fact that a program like this merely lacks this sort of protection should not deter those whom are serious about protecting their computers.

Even if the MBR got infected somehow, this program provides enough swift intervention to prompt a user of unauthorized access to system components and in addition allows itself to be password protected.

Summary

One thing to remember is that most security suite software is not comprehensive enough to provide full protection off by itself, though some products may come close, they still lack protection in several key areas of a system, regardless of how one may attempt to configure their firewall, (Unless of course internet access isn't important to you and thus would rather block all ports on your firewall, there really isn't many other ways to heighten security without enlisting the help of an application such as "Zemana Antilogger")

And for those of you that may have ignored program-compatibility standards before downloading and installing such a program, we must ask ourselves, "Do I really know what I'm doing?"

Usually BSOD happens when people who don't know what they are doing mess with software that they haven't been trained to use. Furthermore, just because it happened after an install of this program, that doesn't necessarily mean that the program itself is faulty.

There are many reasons an end-user may encounter the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), some of which cannot be fully explained by the typical end-user and therefore should not be automatically attributed to a particular program without first understanding exactly what caused the BSOD in the first place.

Some programs just don't play well together and due-diligence also falls upon an end-user to know what they are doing before they mess with something as serious as computer security!

"Seems To Work Well !"

October 21, 2012  |  By tonester59

 |  Version: Zemana AntiLogger Free 1.0.0.833

Pros

Free Protection against an often overlooked threat. Seems compatible with my other security programs. Auto updates. Requires virtually no user interaction, other than a simple setup process ('takes about 2 minutes.) I've noticed no system drag at all.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

This program follows a great philosophy: Do one thing, and do it well. Of course, I won't actually know well it works until it shows a screen that it's blocked an attack - it's like a "no news is good news" kind of deal - but at least it doesn't throw a phony attack at you just to show that it's working like some companies would, which is to Zemana's credit. That goes a long way towards establishing trust and credibility with me. I also really appreciate the program's light system impact and compatibility with everything on my system. My hat's off to Zemana - this one's a winner!

"Buggy, Messed up Outlook 2010."

October 12, 2012  |  By jeck7788

 |  Version: Zemana AntiLogger Free 1.0.0.833

Pros

Didn't have it installed long enough to see how well it worked, but it was a painless install and easy "set it and forget it" kind of software.

Cons

So the bug I ran into was really bad. Outlook 2010 began to get screwed up with the key presses I was making, where it would sometimes use the same letter twice, when I only pushed it once, for instance mm senttnces ssartee eo oook kike ehis. It was the only program that it would do it, all other Office programs worked fine, but Outlook for some reason had that issue. Once I uninstalled the Anti-Logger, Outlook worked fine.
