  • Website Name: In this text field, enter a description of the website for which you would like to save the login credentials.
  • Username: In this text field, enter the username associated with the account for which you would like to save your login credentials.
  • Password: In this text field, enter the password associated with the account for which you would like to save your login credentials.
  • URL: In this text field, enter the URL of the website for which you would like to save your login credentials. An example of a URL would be “www.google.com” without the quotation marks.
  • Add custom field: In this optional text field, you may elect to enter additional notes which expand upon your to-be saved login credentials.

Once you have multiple passwords saved, you may search through your saved passwords with the search bar at the top of the main Password Vault menu.

Why is Keylogging Important?

Keylogging and CryptoDefender®

How do keyloggers work?

Keyloggers work by placing hooks into the Windows message stream, thereby enabling them to log the keystrokes.

What are the existing methods for detecting keyloggers?

The existing methods for detecting keyloggers fall into one of two categories — (1) Scanning for known keyloggers, and (2) Trying to prevent the keyloggers from hooking into the Windows message stream.  Neither method is foolproof, since new keyloggers cannot be detected with the first method and it is difficult to stop keyloggers from hooking into the Windows message stream.

What is CryptoDefender®?

CryptoDefender® is a software program which encrypts your keystrokes between the keyboard and your desktop applications and Internet browsers, so that keyloggers cannot steal your personal or financial information. CryptoDefender® Edition works with Internet Explorer and Firefox to block keyloggers from grabbing information going to Internet applications and protection for desktop applications like Office, email, accounting, messaging, etc.CryptoDefender® Enterprise Edition packages the Premium Edition solution with central management, vendor support, and multi-seat licensing.

What is “Screen-scraping” (aka “Screen Logging”)? Does CryptoDefender® Protect me?

CryptoDefender® Premium Version “Desktop Protection” includes a blocker to hide the screen from screen loggers.  “Screen-scraping” loggers capture snapshots of your screen each time you make a change.

If my computer is infected with a keylogger, will CryptoDefender® protect me?

Yes.  CryptoDefender® will protect the keys you type inside your browser, even if your anti-malware programs do not have current signatures.  When the CryptoDefender® light is Green and says “ON” (or the “B” in the SysTray is flashes as you type), CryptoDefender® is protecting your keystrokes from keyloggers.

What Internet Browsers are supported by CryptoDefender®?

CryptoDefender® Premium (also Enterprise) works with all major browsers. CryptoDefender® provides additional protection for the most popular browsers by installing a toolbar.  The CryptoDefender® toolbars are provided for Internet Explorer 9 on and Firefox releases from 29 on (CryptoDefender is usually available within days of a new Firefox release). Note – If you choose to install Firefox after you have already installed CryptoDefender® you must re-run the CryptoDefender® installer.

What versions of Windows does CryptoDefender® work with?

CryptoDefender® works with all versions of Windows 10 or newer and Server 2012r2 or newer.

Will CryptoDefender® work with any keyboard?

CryptoDefender® works with PS/2 keyboards as well as USB keyboards, including wireless keyboards. Certain enhancement drivers for advanced specialty keyboards may not function when CryptoDefender® is enabled.

Does CryptoDefender® protect a USB keyboard plugged into my laptop?

CryptoDefender®protects typing from all active keyboards; the laptop keyboard and/or USB keyboard and/or PS/2 keyboard.

Does CryptoDefender® hide my keystrokes when I am using Remote Desktop programs?

Yes. The keystrokes going to Remote Desktop Connection programs can be hidden by the current CryptoDefender® releases.

What is the difference between CryptoDefender® and other anti-keyloggers?

CryptoDefender® takes a unique approach to snoop protection.  It encrypts all keystrokes and transfers them to the browser via a proprietary path, bypassing the Windows message stream completely. Thus existing and new keyloggers can’t get their hands on the keystrokes.
