Ghostpress keeps you safe from (some?) keyloggers

GhostpressGhostpress is a free Windows tool which tries to prevent your keystrokes being recorded by malware.

There are many similar programs around, but what makes this one stand out is it’s portable, and so can offer at least some protection when you’re working on other people’s PCs.

Launch the program and a green “Protected” icon shows that everything is working correctly. Neat.

Clicking the icon toggles the security status to “Unprotected”, displaying a red cross, instead.

There are a few additional options, including setting the window to be “always on top”, or running it as a desktop gadget for easier access, but that’s about it.

Ghostpress is tiny, portable, and about as easy to use as possible

Does it work? It’s going to take a lot of testing to find out for sure, but our first look was encouraging: we tried it with two commercial keyloggers, and Ghostpress blocked them both.

Ghostpress is a free application for Windows XP and later.
