There should be an image here!KeyScrambler is software that takes information you type and encrypts it between its path from your keyboard to the application where it ends up. I’ve been trying out the personal version as a free alternative to Kaspersky (nothing against Kaspersky, as it is still what I would recommend if you’re paying for encryption-level security).

The free version of KeyScrambler only protects Firefox and Internet Explorer, which works well for me.

So how does this help? If you have a keylogger on your computer, it will capture random, encrypted characters and won’t be able to tell what you are actually typing, hence keeping your passwords safe.

I’d give KeyScrambler 5/5, and the beauty of the free version is that it doesn’t need to run as it’s a browser add-on / extension that’s not running its own process.
