Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This keystroke monitor sets up easily and dutifully e-mails logs, but it just doesn't accurately record keystrokes. Eavesdropper Keylogger's simple interface guides users through a few steps to configure the application. There isn't a Help file, but most users won't need one. The critical part of the set up process is the user-generated keycode, which is used to access the log file and stop the program. The latter is most important, since most users will quickly uninstall this turkey.

It's optional to have the log files e-mailed, and you can use the program's default server or enter a few settings to use your own mail server. You'll have to trust you entered the correct information as the program lacks a method to test e-mail settings. A simple pull-down menu sets the daily send time. Setup is swift, but our tests found that where it really matters, Eavesdropper Keylogger didn't work. In our test, it failed to record more characters than it captured.

Though its easy to set up, Eavesdropper Keylogger fails too often to give it a recommendation. We suggest you try one of the many other programs in this genre.
