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