And how would that work? A key logger sits before any application so by the time the key hits the browser, it is already logged. If you cannot find and remove the key logger or are not supposed to, then you should not use the computer for anything you would not want whoever installed the logger to see ;)

take a look at prevx with safeonline.

It prevents keylogging and screengrabbers, it integrates in all common browsers.


Using it myself for over a year now, still satisfied.

remark: prevx sits before any given keylogger thus prevents logging ;-)

In fact you have to whitelist all applications that need to be logging and capturing. These applications are checked for malware and upon manual request by email whitelisted.

But it is not a browser plugin.

Yes no plugin, because a keylogger could indeed capture all passwords before it is send to the browser.
I wanted the emphasize that it supports  users against keylogging of data in the browser.

So strictly speaking you are right. but I suppose the asker can live with that tool.
