HELP & SETTINGS

Editors' Review

This program promises security for your personal data, but the lack of a Help file or program explanation leaves you in the dark. AntiKeylog Home immediately adds a system tray icon after installation. The context menu lets you turn security on and off, access the options interface, and go to the online Help file. Unfortunately, the link to the Help file doesn't work. This app covers only Internet Explorer and no other browsers.

When you the launch the Options window, the link for the Help file does work, but the incomplete page doesn't have any user guidance. The Options menu holds only basic settings to enable text and audio alerts and run at Windows start-up. The security tab shows a single program, AntiKeylog Home, and has the option to add others. It isn't clear what this does, though, and the onscreen description says only that you add a program when you have trouble with AntiKeylog Home.

The Image tab also needs more guidance. There are three check boxes. One is for background image, while the other two are for selecting input mode or wait mode. Find buttons only allow you to choose an image file for the modes. We did find that when typing in information online, the cursor line was green and a prominent green "A" also appeared in the entry box. During our tests, we apparently didn't encounter any keylogging activity, since no alerts appeared.

The fact that this version is a couple of years old means its security measures might not be up to preventing the newest forms of keyloggers. The app fails to prove it protects those entering information online. The publisher's lack of feedback makes you wonder just what AntikeyLog Home accomplishes. The little evidence of its presence as we filled in data wasn't enough to make us feel more secure online. We suggest you find a program that offers more information on what it does.
