RoboForm Defeats KeyLoggers
A computer that you use
may have a keylogger installed on it,
especially if this is a computer at internet cafe or at your work.
Keyloggers steal your passwords if you manually type them and
a third party (your employer, your wife, your competitor or simply a hacker)
will be able to log into your accounts using stolen passwords.
Keyloggers may be hard to detect due to their stealthing abilities.
RoboForm/RoboForm2Go starting with ver 6.7.4 provides
substantial protection against keyloggers.
Use RoboForm Virtual Keyboard to type your Master Password and
keyloggers will not see it.
With Virtual Keyboard you click images of keyboard buttons with mouse,
not the actual buttons on keyboard, so no keyboard events are
generated and keylogger do not see what you type.
Web Site Passwords.
More advanced keyloggers may attach to Internet Explorer and
get password directly from the password field using IE page model.
In this case they can get even passwords that are not typed.
RoboForm provides two types of protection against this:
• Quick Typing.
Roboform enters password quickly and it presses Submit button quickly,
so many keyloggers will not be fast enough to get web page password
from the page. Some keyloggers, though, may be fast enough.
• Firefox Factor.
Firefox is more closed than Internet Explorer and attaching to it in
order to steal passwords directly from fields is more difficult.
We have yet to see a keylogger than can steal password directly from
Firefox password field when keyboard is not used to enter it.
