How to Hide Keylogger

by Jeff Grundy

Keylogger is a computer application that lets you record someone's keystrokes while a program is running. It is useful if you need to recover passwords, monitor employees or children's computer activities, or investigate suspicious activity. Although the application is effective at recording keystrokes, it can only do so when it is open and active. You should hide Keylogger to keep users from closing the application.

Step 1

Double-click the Keylogger/Keylogger Pro icon on the Windows desktop to launch the application.

Step 2

Click the "Options" button in the main Keylogger window, then click the "Stealth/Invisible" tab.

Step 3

Click the check boxes next to the following options to enable them: "Hide Keylogger from Windows Add/Remove Programs" "Hide Keylogger from Windows StartMenu/Desktop" "Hide Keylogger from Windows Task Manager (CTRL + ALT + DEL)" "Hide Keylogger system tray icon"

Click the "OK" button to close the Keylogger "Options" window. Wait while Keylogger makes the changes. Once complete, users should not be able to view the program when it is running.


  • After you make the changes that hide Keylogger, you must navigate to the Keylogger installation folder on your computer and click the "keylog.exe" (or another name if changed the executable file name) in order to launch the application and view keystroke logs.
