Virtual keyboard.

When working on your computer, instances frequently occur when entering your personal data, or username and password is required. That happens, for example, during account registration on web sites, web shopping or Internet banking.

There is a risk that this personal information is intercepted using hardware keyboard interceptors or keyloggers, which are programs that register keystrokes.

The Virtual Keyboard tool prevents the interception of data entered via the keyboard.

The Virtual Keyboard cannot protect your personal data if the website requiring the entry of such data has been hacked, because in this case the information is obtained directly by the intruders.

Many of the applications classified as spyware have the function of making screenshots which then are transferred to an intruder for further analysis and for stealing the user’s personal data. Virtual Keyboard prevents the personal data being entered from being intercepted with the use of screenshots.

Virtual Keyboard only prevents the interception of privacy data when working with Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers.

Before you start using the Virtual Keyboard, please learn its peculiarities:

  • Before entering data from the Virtual Keyboard, make sure using the mouse pointer that the appropriate entry field is selected.
  • You can press the Virtual Keyboard buttons with the mouse.
  • Unlike real keyboards, there is no way to press two keys simultaneously on the Virtual Keyboard.

Second key press acts like key release on a real keyboard.
