I would never install a software that has access to all my passwords and other information from a company that is unknown.
Keyscrambler lives here. It's an application that tackles the problem of malware using a so-called 'keylogging' application to send all your keystrokes - typing, in other words, including passwords and personal data - through a backdoor and on directly to a hacker somewhere. Allegedly most types of malicious wares include a keylogging facility and most antivirus apps can't catch it reliably.
Keyscrambler deals with this in a unique way, by encrypting everything you type as you type it, and keeping it that way until the data reaches the application you are using, where it is decrypted again. The process is transparent to you, and protected deep within the Windows operating system. If you wish, though, you can watch the app at work and see the encrypted version of your text as you type. There is no appreciable decrease in processing speed.
The app comes in three flavors, including a free browser plug-in which works in Firefox and Internet Explorer and encrypts data entered into these apps only. The "Pro" version is, name notwithstanding, the one to get for the average user who types a lot of offline mail and correspondence in general, or who uses a different browser, as it protects a far greater range of applications. Lastly there is the Business version with some more bells and whistles. Prices are currently $25 and $45 respectively for the Pro and Business versions, the browser plug-in being free.
Nothing much to fault here, as long as the claims made for the app are as good as they seem, and there's no reason to doubt that. If you are concerned that you're typing sensitive information on a regular basis, in word processors and other offline applications, this is worth a look. Otherwise try out the free browser plug-in and keep your online secrets secret. What happens in Firefox should stay in Firefox.
