Although it may seem overwhelming at first glance, the KEYKatcher is a very simple device to install and to use.

It resembles a standard connector but inside the KEYKatcher is a microcontroller and a non-volatile memory chip. The microcontroller interprets the data (keystrokes) as they are typed and the non-volatile memory stores it.

To install the KEYKatcher all you need to do is plug it in between your keyboard cable and your computer. The KEYKatcher is ready to record the instant you plug it in. Heat-shrink tubing is provided with each KEYKatcher so that you may attach the unit to the keyboard cable creating a tamper-evident seal which cannot be removed without your knowledge.

Retrieving Data
When you want to see what's been recorded, simply open any word processing program (Microsoft WordPad recommended) and type in your password. As soon as you password has been correctly entered a menu will be displayed on the screen. The menu gives you the several options, including: view memory, keyword search, and NETPatrol (which instantly identifies all occurrences of www, .com, .net and http).

General Use
The KEYKatcher works with any PC operating system. Since it stores keystrokes in a non-volatile memory chip you can record on one computer, unplug it, then read it out on another computer. This also means that no data will be lost in the event of a power outage, which makes the KEYKatcher a great backup device. When you're ready to see what the KEYKatcher has recorded type in your password (without mistakes, the KEYKatcher cannot recognize passwords if a backspace is typed) then choose the 'view memory' option to see every keystroke that's been recorded or save time using a keyword search. If your concerned with internet usage use the NETPatrol search function to identify all occurrences of www, .com, .net and http.
