Secure Keys Description

Although not intended to steal your private information, Windows does use a special buffer to record all keyboard activity. On the downside, this can be used to the advantage of malicious programs, such as keyloggers and spyware. In this regard, Secure Keys comes as a virtual keyboard which aims to bypass these leaks in information.

Send keywords to offline or web-based applications

Once installed, the application can be launched without a system restart. A tray icon is created, and the representation of a virtual keyboard shows up on screen. The layout is pretty intuitive, and there are also some visual tweaks to apply, such as tiny spacing between buttons, bold keys, image keys, audio feedback, and more.
By default, the application inserts text in the active window. The program’s interface is set to stay on top of everything else to prevent you from losing focus on elements of interest. There are several modes of operation, namely to insert text in particular windows, or in web-based applications, such as your web browser.

Input not taken through the regular keyboard buffer

You might notice that text gets automatically inserted as you type, but there’s also a special field which temporarily keeps input. Hitting the send button beams the temp keys into the target app. This is exactly where the application comes in handy, because sending entire keywords is done directly, without using the keyboard buffer, from which basic spyware and keyloggers can grab info.
Bypassing the buffer is a neat way of having confidential data beamed directly, such as usernames and passwords. The temporary field is masked, so other individuals can’t see what exactly is that you are typing.

To sum it up

All things considered, we can state that Secure Keys might not come in handy for every-day activities, but it can surely minimize the risk of making important data fields prey to keyloggers and spyware. The method of approach is neat, presenting its features in an intuitive design, making it worth your while overall.
