While shopping online,you have to enter your credit card data or when you login to your internet bank account for some work you will need to type your user name and password.At all these instances you are prone to theft of your identity.Anybody with  malicious intention can record your keystrokes and get your user name,password and credit card number.The act of this recording is known as “KEY-LOGGING”.They are very dangerous.Even more so because it is fairly possible that your trusted antivirus solution may not recognize any small software as a key logger.

What this software does is encryption between the path from keyboard strokes to internet.This is where any key logger programs sits .Let’s  understand it by an illustration.
