At Comodo, we understand your worry and want to help you fight against keyloggers and what they do. A keylogger is malware that is put on the computer so that the criminal can, in essence, see what you type. Everything is logged and saved in a file or even on your computer. At certain times, the person can connect to your computer and remove the information, sifting through it at their leisure. Therefore, you need keylogger protection to help keep them at bay.
The best thing to do is prevent them from gaining access. Unless you are willing to never connect to the Internet again, you’re probably going to want antivirus and antimalware software to help ensure that you don’t get attacked.
However, there are other things you can do, including checking your control panel, doing sweeps, be wary of anyone you talk to online and take precautions. Everyone should check their control panel at least once a week, so you can see if anything new has popped up. Keeping up with virus definitions and scanning for viruses is also a necessary step. Don’t assume that it is set up to do so automatically, do it yourself!
If you do find something untoward or something you’re not sure about, our keylogger protection will scan for it, find it and remove it for you. If you’d like more information, please contact us today.
