Final Conclusions

As you can see from the above screenshot, the Keyghost was able to reproduce each and every keystroke that I had made. And I mean every key.

Please do remember that all Keyghost access should be within a text editor. Since the device processes keystrokes on the fly, you don't want to accidentally enter the password while playing Quake3 or surfing the net.

However, the device isn't exactly foolproof. If an employer wishes to monitor internet usage activity, the employee can easily navigate through bookmarks and other links (wish may not make the boss very happy) without any of that activity being recorded on the Keyghost. The device works only when the computer operator physically enters keystrokes.

This product is going to attract reactions on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Some will be furious, many will simply love it. However, it is not up to us on how "morally correct" this device is. For us, it is how this product perform. And in our eyes, it performs pretty darn well.

People who wish to incorporate this device must maintain a certain degree of precaution as it is not impossible to detect. In case this particular unit does not fit your needs, you can visit the Keyghost homepage and find one that does.

The price? For this particular model, the cost of US $249. However, if you are that serious about security, then price should not be an issue.

On a final note, it is quite interested how far surveillance equipment has advanced. The Keyghost detects every keystroke with total transparency and it is extremely easy to use. And with a capacity of 500,000 keystroke, you can ensure that no activity will go by unmonitored.
