Install A Keylogger With Online Monitoring


As the name Implies, a keylogger, also referred to as a keystroke logger, Is a tool that's used to capture and record every key that's physically typed on the computer's (and associated devices) hardware keyboard. Whilst It's renowned to be used by hackers for malicious Intent, a keylogger can also be used for ethical purposes. In this tutorial, I will show you how to Install a keylogger on a computer with online monitoring.


Before I begin, I'd like to make one thing perfectly clear. This article refers to keylogging a computer of your choice for ethical purposes, without any malicious behavior whatsoever. There's also a fine line between monitoring a given device and Invasion of privacy, so be sure to check with the applicable law prior to moving forward with this tutorial.

So from an ethical standpoint, what's the purpose of keylogging a PC? There's hundreds of reasons, hence It's beyond the scope of this article to cover the lot. Commonalities Include monitoring your child's online activity for security & safety purposes, or perhaps you suspect your partner of being unfaithful, therefore want to confirm your suspicion, one way or another.

Whatever the reason, I will demonstrate how to Install a keylogger on the computer In question, and setup online monitoring, whereby you can access the Information from any web browser on any device. It's not only keystrokes that you'll have access to, but also screenshots, web pages visited, screen recording and more.

This Is quite a lengthy guide, yet simplified and straight to the point. So without further ado, let's rip Into this tutorial.


Step One:
The first thing you need to do, Is register an account with Spyrix here. This Is the website that you'll be using for your online monitoring. There's no need to enter a phone number, so leave that part blank.



Step Two:
Next, download the keylogger software from the same website. The Spyrix Keylogger Free version, will suffice. This will be Installed on the PC that you wish to monitor, so make your decision now. Upon executing It, the setup wizard will be displayed, so hit Next.



Step Three:
Now simply hit Install, to move forward with the Installation process.



Step Four:
Once the Installation completes, click the Launch Spyrix Free Keylogger checkbox, and hit Finish to finalize the Installation.



Step Five:
The Settings Wizard will now open, so hit Next.



Step Six:
You'll be prompted to enter an email address, so use the same email as per Step One above- when you registered the online account. Then click Next.



Step Seven:
This Is where you must enter a password, thus every time you access the keylogger software, It will request It. Once you've done that, click Next.



Step Eight:
Now select the local user accounts that you want to monitor. To the left of the window, I suggest checking all the options as Illustrated below.



Step Nine:
A message will now be displayed, confirming that the keylogger Is connected to your online account. Now simply close the window.



Step Ten:
The keylogger will sit In the Taskbar's hidden Icons section as shown below. The Icon Itself, does not contain a name, nor any other Identifiable details, therefore users will be completely unaware of It's nature. Double-click the Icon.



Step Eleven:
It will prompt for your password, so enter the one that you created In Step Seven above and hit OK. As you can see, the window does not display any details pertaining to the keylogger.



Step Twelve:
And here's what to expect from the keylogger. To the right of the window, you can see notepad.exe and mspaint.exe. I was using these when creating this tutorial, hence It's logged my actions! On the left pane, are the options that the keylogger entails. This confirms that It's actively monitoring the computer, so you can now close It.



Step Thirteen:
Now head back to the Spyrix website, and login to your online account that you created In Step One above. This Is where the online monitoring takes place.



Step Fourteen:
And here's my dashboard. As you can see, It's logged the applications that I was using at the time, Inclusive of their duration (time).



Step Fifteen:
I've now selected the Keyboard events option, and every keystroke that I've typed, has been logged. Let's briefly check It out In the next step.



Step Sixteen:
Upon clicking the Show control keys | View link, It's logged the exact time & date, of when I accessed Facebook- even how I logged In by hitting the Enter key! For security purposes, I've hidden my user credentials.



Last Step:
This part Is quite Impressive. I've clicked the Screenshots option, and as you can see, every screenshot I've taken has been recorded. These are the actual Images I was using for this tutorial.



Final Thoughts:
I'd say It's very safe to assume that you're quite Impressed with the keylogger's capabilities, and rightly so. This Is only a fraction of what It entails, meaning there's a lot more options on the online dashboard. Do remember, that you can access your online account from any browser & device.

The events that It records, Is based on the options that you select In the keylogger as per Step Twelve above. So be sure to choose those suited to the environment of the user that you're monitoring. I'd like to reiterate, that this must only be used for ethical purposes, without any malicious Intent. If you have any questions or concerns, drop a comment below.
