you are welcome

glad u like it keyloggers get our password from what we typing. keyloggers running hidden they don't display as normal software so hard to detect. If your computer infected with a keylogger it record your all key-strokes(that mean everything you typing) when you go to your email web site

eg;- yahoo

and type your password in order keylogger will record it. Their are different types of keyloggers. I'll explain two most popular ones

1. Remote keylogger

This keylogger record our password and send those to keylogger owners email account or server.

this keylogger mainly install to computers when we download warez untrusted files Some warez have hidden keyloggers software eg;- if you install a pirate game that download from a torrent site that may install not only game it will also install keylogger

To avoid this don't download warez or untrusted files from internet don't install untrusted software always download and install software from trusted web sites.

2. Normal keylogger

This keylogger record our password but doesn't send it to owner's email or server owner have to open keylogger software and check for passwords

This keylogger have to manually install that mean someone who have access to your computer have to install this.

To avoid this limit your computer access only to people you trust. When someone using your computer take eye on what they are doing. Don't leave your computer on for just 5 minutes (5 minutes is enough to install a keylogger software) log off your computer or password protect your screen and leave. It is good idea to insert password to your screen saver(5 to 10 minute) that lock ur screen when ideal If someone want to access your computer Don't give them admin access that have power to install software just give them limited guest access that can't install software.

There are also hardware keyloggers that install in your hardware

eg:-

if your email is [email protected] and password is "Maddy83"

if you enter in order keylogger recored it as same

username :- [email protected]
password :- maddy83

but if you insert it not in order keylogger recored it as this

username :- [email protected]
password :- 38ddmay

see now password is wrong so keylooger owner can't enter your account
