Invisible Keylogger

Invisible Keylogger: An Invisible Threat?

Countless parents, employers, and law enforcement agencies use monitoring software; when used correctly, keylogger programs can be an incredibly beneficial tool.  Parents can help keep predators from their children; employers can ensure that confidential data stays safe; police officials can unlock clues.  Each of these is a legitimate use of keylogging software, but programs like Invisible Keylogger from Spy Patrol can be just as easily used for malicious purposes.

Introduction to Invisible Keylogger

Manufacturer Spy Patrol has stopped updating and maintaining Invisible Keylogger, but it is still available for download on the internet.  Reviewers agree that it is a good tool for reviewing and monitoring computer activities.  How does it do this?

·         Viewing outgoing emails.

·         Viewing both sides of chats and IMs.

·         Logging of each keystroke.

·         Filtering and blocking of websites.

·         Capturing passwords and usernames.

One of its most important features is its stealth mode.  This allows the program to run undetected in order to prevent removal and/or hide the fact that the computer is being monitored. This keylogger, like most others, will not show up on programs lists, the desktop, system tray, or task manager.

Risks Posed By Invisible Keylogger

If you are a tween and the keylogger was installed by parents, the risk is that they find out what you say to your friends when you think no one’s listening (or reading).  Parents limit privacy in order to protect their children.  As an adult, the risks grow more severe.  When someone is monitoring your computer, they are looking for information.  Whether it is personal, health-related, or financial, this tends to be data that you do not want shared and that you expect to be secure. 

Suspicious spouses, friends, family members, or neighbors might install Invisible Keylogger simply to keep an eye on you or find specific information.  Spouses, for instance, may use such a program to sniff out infidelity.  When a keylogger is installed on your personal computer without your knowledge or consent, it is a gross violation of privacy.

This could have more far-reaching effects as well. Among the data that can be recovered are bank account and credit card numbers, usernames, and passwords.  It is possible for the monitor to access this sensitive material and use it maliciously.

Programs like this also pose another problem for computer users; it can create security vulnerabilities that make your system more susceptible to malware attacks.  It can also modify security settings, self-mutate, or modify system files, which will impair the performance of your computer.  Because of these risks, it is important to remove Invisible Keylogger as soon as you can.

Invisible Keylogger Installation

Unlike Trojans or viruses, Invisible Keylogger is not stealth-installed; it does not slip past your security settings and download itself without your knowledge or permission.  It must be manually loaded onto the computer; the person who wishes to monitor computer activity has to have direct access.  Someone, whether a spouse, friend, neighbor, coworker, or associate, must access your personal computer and have a few minutes to run the install. After the program is installed, then the monitor can review information from a remote location via email reports.

Signs of Invisible Keylogger

One of the reasons why keyloggers are so effective for parents or employers is because they are able to run undetected by either the user or standard security programs.  As mentioned, keyloggers do not show up on program lists, menus, or the Task Manager.  This is also the reason why these programs can pose such a threat; you simply do not know if you are being monitored.  If Invisible Keylogger is set to Stealth Mode, you will not be able to detect it.  This product lives up to its name; it really is invisible to most computer users.

Removing Invisible Keylogger

It is important to remove Invisible Keylogger as soon as possible – but how do you do this if you cannot even tell if it is, in fact, installed in your system?  If you suspect that a keylogger is monitoring your activity, it is important that you find out for sure.  Programs like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) are specifically designed to root out keyloggers.  They detect the undetectable, a capability that the vast majority of standard security software does not offer.

Manual removal of each and every registry entry associated with Invisible Keylogger is not only laborious, it is risky.  It is possible to miss a file or two, in which case the program can rebuild itself.  It is also possible to inadvertently delete legitimate applications. Directions follow for those who want to try.
