Sometime you must have gone to a cyber cafe or used public computers to access the internet or mail.

Public computers are most prone to password hacking. Anyone can simply install a keylogger software to hack your password. Keylogging is one of the most insidious threats to a users personal information. Passwords,credit card numbers,etc.

It is very easy for the keylogger to harvest passwords. Each and every keystroke (whatever you type on the keyboard) gets recorded in the keylogger software and the person installing it can easily view what you have typed in.

For example,if you go to and check your mails. Say your ID is and password is snoopy2,the keylogger software records your usename and password in its log file as

Risky isnt it???!!!

Theres a solution to this problem and you can easily fool the software!!

The keylogger software sees and records everything,but it doesnt understand what it sees,it does not know what to do with keys that are typed anywhere other than the password or user name fields.

So between successive keys of the password if you enter random keys,the keylogger software wont ever come to know where you typed in what..

In the process of recording the keys,the string that the keylogger receives will contain the password,but embedded in so much random junk that discovering it is infeasible.


1. Go to or or any other site where you need to insert a password or PIN.

2. Type in your user ID.

3. Type in the first characterof the password.

4. Click on the address bar in the browser,type in some random charachters.

5. Again go to password field and type in the second character of the password and probably third too.

6. Again go to the address bar and type in a few more random characters.

7. Back to the password field and the next characters of the password.

Keep on repeating the process till you type in the full password in the password field.

Instead of the password snoopy2,the keylogger now gets:

Heres a total of 26 random characters have been inserted among the 7 characters of the actual password!!!

No doubt it takes a little bit of more time than the usual process,but you are safe and secure that way!!!
