How to Use Keylogger to Monitor Your Computer

How to Use KeyloggerHere is a detailed tutorial which contains every possible information that you need to know about using a keylogger to monitor the activities of a computer. I know most of you are new to the concept of keylogger program. For some of you, this might be the first time you’ve heard about the term “keylogger”. So, to give you a clear picture and make you understand better, I would like to take up this post in the form of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions). Here we go:

NOTE: I highly recommend that you read this post completely as every single piece of information is important.

1. What is a Keylogger?

A keylogger (also called as spy software) is a small program that monitors each and every keystroke a user types on a specific computer’s keyboard. A keylogger program can be installed in just a few seconds and once installed, you are only a step away from getting the target password and other sensitive data.

2. How Keylogger works?

Once the keylogger is installed on a PC, it starts operating in the background (stealth mode) and captures every keystroke of the target computer.

Let’s take up a small example: The user on the target computer goes to and types his “username” and the “password” in the respective fields to login. The keylogger silently records these keystrokes and stores them in the logs. These logs when opened up shows the captured “username” and “password“. Along with this, you will also be shown that they were typed in the Yahoo login page. Thus, the keylogger loads upon every startup, runs in the background and captures each and every keystroke.

3. How to install the keylogger?

A keylogger can be installed just like any other program. Just follow the screen instructions and you’re done.

4. Do I need any special knowledge to install and use the keylogger?

Absolutely NOT! Anyone with a basic computer knowledge can install and use the keylogger. It requires no special skills.

5. Once I install the keylogger, can the target user come to know about its presence?

No. The target user will never come to know about the presence of the keylogger on his/her computer. This is because, once installed, the keylogger will run in total stealth mode. Unlike other programs, it will never show up in the start-menu, windows startup, program files, add/remove programs or the task manager. So, the victim can no way identify its presence on his/her PC.

6. Can I be traced back if I install the keylogger on some other computer?

No, it’s almost impossible to trace back to you for installing the keylogger on other’s PC.

7. Which keylogger is the best?

Today, there exists hundreds of keyloggers on the market and most of them are no more than a scam. So, I have personally tested some of the top keyloggers and conclude Realtime-Spy as the best one:

Realtime-Spy – Windows Edition (XP/Vista/7/8)

Realtime-Spy – Mac Edition

8. How Realtime-Spy works?

I will try to explain the working of Realtime-Spy in simple steps:

  1. After you purchase Realtime-Spy, you’ll be able to create the installation module using an easy set-up program. You need to email this module to the remote user as an attachment.

  2. When the remote user runs the module it’ll get installed silently and monitoring process will begin. The keystrokes are captured and uploaded to the Realtime-Spy servers continuously.

  3. You can login to your Realtime-Spy account (you get this after purchase) to see the logs which contains the password.

9. I don’t have physical access to the target computer. Can I still use Realtime-Spy?

Yes you can! Realtime-Spy supports REMOTE INSTALLATION feature which allows you to remotely install the program on any PC even if you have no physical access to it. For remote installation, all you need to do is just place the module (refer FAQ-8) in a .zip/.rar file and send it as an attachment to the target email address (for which you need the password).

10. Can I install Realtime-Spy on a local computer?

If you need to install to your local (current) computer instead of your remote computer, then the process is simple. Simply navigate to the folder in which you saved your module ( Refer FAQ-8). Double-click the module filename to execute it. Nothing will appear on the screen but the software gets installed silently.

11. What if the antivirus prevent from sending it as an email attachment?

Instead of sending the keylogger as an email attachment, it is recommended that you place the file in .ZIP/.RAR format and upload it to After uploading, just send the direct download link (MyFlare allows hot-linking) to the target via email. Once he downloads the file from this link and run it, the keylogger will get installed automatically.

12. Why Realtime-Spy is the best?

  • Supports REMOTE INSTALLATION feature. This feature is not present on most of the keylogger programs.
  • Fully compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8 and also Mac.
  • Realtime-Spy can bypass any Firewall.
  • Realtime-Spy is more reliable than any other keylogger program. You need not rely on your email account to receive the logs. Instead, you can just log in to your online Realtime-Spy account to receive the logs.
  • Realtime-Spy captures full-size screenshots of the activities on the target PC.
  • Records BOTH sides of chats / IMs in Google Talk, Yahoo IM, Windows Live and more.
  • Realtime-Spy is more easy to install and requires no extra knowledge.
  • Realtime-Spy is recognized by BBC, CNN, CBS and other news networks. Hence, it is reputed and trustworthy.

13. How safe is to use Realtime-Spy?

Realtime-Spy is completely safe to use since all the customer databases remain confidential and private. Realtime-Spy does not collect any information from your system other than the information required for the product’s successful operation. They will not contact you in any way unless you request assistance.

      @ sameer

      With the purchase of Realtime-spy you can access only one computer. In order to access more you need to buy additional licenses.

    • Srikanth
      December 29, 2009 at 2:17 PM

      @ harpreet

      Rebooting your computer will not remove the keylogger. Instead use a good antispyware/antikeylogger to remove the keylogger.

    • Srikanth

      @ elen

      Yes there is an option to uninstall it remotely when you no longer need it on the remote PC. BTW installation module is nothing but the file that you need to send to the remote PC.

    Thanks a lot brother, it seems that u r savvy and cute for net processing affairs and me actually learning a lot from you on this site day by day, really amusing and i am riveted on the site cuz of availability of interesting data for widening my knowledge on the internet. Can you tell me any other better possibilities of hacking emails…? thks a lot again…

    • Srikanth
      December 29, 2009 at 1:58 PM

      @ Baha

      There are only two possible ways to hack an email password. 1. Keylogging 2. Phishing. However it is possible to hijack the unclosed sessions by cookie stealing. By this you can only gain access to the email account but cannot hack it’s password.

      @ Sc0ne

      YOu need to use a good antikeylogger to remove the keylogger from your computer.

    How would you tell if it was running on your computer? Is there a service that would be running that you can look for?

    • Srikanth
      December 29, 2009 at 1:53 PM

      @ Dan

      It is not possible to identify the working of keyloggers in the background since it doesn’t show up in task manager or in the services tab.

      @ krishna kumari

      You can buy Realtime-Spy from it’s vendors and get support from them (follow the link from our site). We are not the vendors of Realtime-Spy. We only refer it for our readers. BTW you can send the module again and again in different type of attachment until it works.

    Hey Srikanth.
    I have a simple question:
    I’m very interested in Realtime Spy.
    My simple question is: Is possible to get (in any way possible-I won’t be bothering you how) that program for free? I mean, if someone indicates me right way..would be possible?
    You can just reply with YES (it would be possible), and NO (it wouldnt…)


    • Srikanth
      January 12, 2010 at 9:41 PM

      @ WII

      NO it’s not possible to get Realtime-Spy for free at any cost.

      You can find free keyloggers by performing a Google search. However free keyloggers do not support remote installation.

    Very informative article.

    I still have a couple of questions: could you please help?

    Firstly,(and most importantly),is this practice legal ?

    Could you please also tell me as to how the remote logger works(if it does)if the other person is using a public computer,namely from a cyber café ?Or one at work ? Won’t I then be receiving also information of other people as well ? And if the person is using the office computer, isn’t there a risk of my receiving work’s info (neither of which I really want) as well ?

    I have a suspicion that somebody is not being very honest with me and hence I would like to confirm this (or be proven otherwise). And that is why I really do need one such software but first I would like to know that I am not infringing on other innocent people’s privacy. Once I have the information I want,I probably shall not use the software again. Srikanth, I shall await your kind response. In your knowledgable view which particular software would you advise?

    Thank you and I apologize for any inconvenience caused.

    Take care

    Kind regards

    • Srikanth
      April 18, 2010 at 6:37 PM

      @ krw12372

      “module” is nothing but a small executable file (.exe file) that you need to send to the target user.

      You have the option to uninstall it remotely. This works by connecting to the remote computer and initiating the remote uninstall command.

    Hi Srikanth,

    I think my boyfriend is seeing another girl… and I want to hack his yahoo to see if this is the case. I also want to hack the yahoo of the girl because I know there is the chance my boyfriend deletes his emails… So the question here is if i want to hack into these 2 computers do i need to buy the program 2 times or can i buy it once and use it however often i want?

    thanks, Katie

    • Srikanth
      May 17, 2010 at 2:15 PM

      @ katie

      You can use the software on only one computer at a time. However once you uninstall it after getting the password, you are free to use it on the other. In case if you want to use it simultaneously on 2 different computers then you need to buy only an additional license which will cost only an extra small amount. YOU NEED NOT BUY THE PROGRAM TWICE.

  26. Katie
    May 17, 2010 at 5:14 PM

    Hi Srikanth,

    Thanks for the answer… I have just one more question.
    I was just looking at their website and read some things… It said that if you buy the program you need to prove the computer you want to instal it on is infact yours or you are allowed by the owner to instal it. Now I can tell you for sure my boyfriend will not allow me to instal the program onto his computer… so does this mean I can’t buy/use the program?

    xx Katie

    • Srikanth
      May 20, 2010 at 8:02 AM

      @ Katie

      You can still buy and use it. And it works too. But you’ve to do this on your own risk.

    I want to enter into my LDR’s yahoo mail and chat since I think I am being played.

    Question is, if I get Realtime-Spy and send the “.exe” file. When he clicks on it, what will it show on his PC ? is it that nothing will happen (but really will in the background and he won’t see) or will it start an app and he will know.

    Quick reply needed, I can go on suffering like this anymore.

    Thanks a million.

    • Srikanth
      May 20, 2010 at 8:00 AM

      @ undercover

      No, Realtime-Spy will be completely invisible and will not show up anywhere at any time. There is no chance that the target person to know that it’s working in the background!

  28. undercover
    May 18, 2010 at 2:37 AM

    obviously, I meant to say I CAN’T go on suffering like that.

      Yes, you can put it in a usb drive and install it. BTW Realtime-Spy will record both username and the password.
