Top 10 Free Keyloggers to Monitor Your Computer

As promised in my last post, here I am with an exclusive list of the top 10 best free keyloggers. You will find hundreds of free keyloggers online; however, only a few will be legitimate and free from malicious codes that will in turn affect your computer itself.

This is the first reason I always recommend going for paid keyloggers like mSpy. Secondly, you will find almost all free keyloggers are detectable by popular antivirus software due to their sparse coding, which is another reason to buy paid keyloggers as they are entirely operating in stealth mode.

However, If you are planning to monitor only your computer or any system that you have control of, then you can blindly go for the “best hardware keylogger” as they are the safest keyloggers and operate in complete stealth.

If you still want to prefer free keyloggers, then below is a list of free keyloggers that will help you monitor your system and get your sibling’s or spouse’s password.

Disclaimer: I have personally tested every single free keylogger available online to bring to you my favourites; however, I hold no responsibility for anything that might be caused due to these keyloggers.

[ * ] The keyloggers are ranked according to ease of use and capability. In some keyloggers, you need to choose a secret keycode or password or some keyboard key combination to view the control panel. So Its highly recommended that you read the “readme” text or instructions for each keylogger.

#1. REFOG Free Edition

Refog Real Free Keylogger beats the competition in two respects: it’s simple to use, and it’s free. REFOG-free keyloggers can look after your children without them even noticing.

Even technically minded children won’t detect the critical logger when it runs in stealth mode. The program removes all the shortcuts and can be accessed only through a hotkey combination.

Running unobtrusively from the moment the system boots, the REFOG keylogger keeps track of all typed or pasted text. It is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems. They also have a free keylogger for Android that can capture all the typed texts on your cell phone.


#2. Black box express [My favourite]

It is simple to use the monitoring of one local computer to monitor screen recordings, programs, typed texts, websites, web searches, emails, and instant messenger chats. Alerts and warnings are sent instantly or as a summary on your email or cell phone. Everything is 100% free. No strings are attached.


#3. Personal keylogger [portable]

The personal free keylogger application was designed to be a small tool that will allow you to record all keystrokes and other input secretly. All specific instructions are explained in the app.

To exit it and receive your logs, you will need to enter your key code. If you have forgotten your keycode, you will need to restart the computer. A keycode is like a password.

To stop a personal keylogger, you can enter your keycode anywhere on the screen. Once you type in your keycode, the keylogger will pause monitoring, and the log.txt file will be created in your selected destination folder.


#4. Py keylogger

PyKeylogger is an easy-to-use and simple keylogger written in python. It is primarily designed for backup purposes but can be used as a stealth keylogger, too. It does not raise any trust issues since it is a short python script that you can quickly examine.

It is primarily designed for personal backup purposes, rather than stealth keylogging. Thus, it does not make explicit attempts to hide its presence from the operating system or the user.

That said, the only way it is visible is that the process name shows up in the task list, so it is not immediately apparent that there is a keylogger on the system.

Tip: Press and hold the ‘left-CTRL + right-CTRL + F12’ keys simultaneously to bring up the Control Panel (default password is blank).


#5. Heretic Macro

A heretic is a powerful free keylogger tool that can record user events, such as mouse clicks and keys, into a C/Java-like script and play that script either once or repeatedly. It has many commands for dynamic pixel-based botting, window-based botting, and static botting/macro-ing (i.e., keypresses, mouse clicks, mouse moves, and pauses).


#6. Ultimate keylogger free

Ultimate Keylogger Free is a popular all-round monitoring solution. It runs in the background and monitors all typed texts, applications, passwords, clipboards, emails, and visited websites. You can view the reports as HTML files. The ultimate free keylogger will help you find out exactly what took place in the system.


#7. Actual keylogger

It runs hidden in the background and automatically records all keystrokes (including Alt, Ctrl, and other functional buttons). The interface can be password-protected, and the log files are encrypted. You can view the reports as HTML or plain text. In the hidden mode or stealth mode, it is invisible on all operating systems.


#8. Revealer Keylogger, Free Edition

Revealer Keylogger is undoubtedly the easiest and fastest way to record keyboard inputs. There is almost nothing to configure; in fact, everything is set internally with the best settings.

A free keylogger monitoring tool that logs every keystroke, even passwords behind asterisks and conversations in common instant messengers. Its interface is password-protected, and the software does not appear in Add/Remove programs or the taskbar.


#9. Romaco Keylogger

Romaco Keylogger is a small and easy-to-use tool that can log all key presses that are made while it is running and display them to you in its window. It automatically exports the recorded text to a text file every 5 minutes, or manually.

It can be hidden at the click of a button and recalled by vigorously pressing one of the least used keys on the keyboard, the broken key.


#10. KidLogger

KidLogger collects user activity journals on the computer and creates a detailed analysis of the user activity available online. Creates a list of the most used web sites. Records all of the typed texts in any application.
