Its Simple to Record and Retrieve Keystrokes with KeyGhost SX

To begin recording activity, simply plug KeyGhost SX between the keyboard and PC.
With a small amount of practice this should take you less than 5 seconds.

Quick fitting instructions

Once KeyGhost SX is attached it begins recording immediately.
Note: Most modern PCs do not need to be powered off to attach KeyGhost SX.
You can quickly test if your PC falls into this category by unplugging and plugging in your keyboard (there is no need to attach a KeyGhost for this test).
If it still works after the test, then KeyGhost can be installed without the need to power down the PC.

Software computer monitoring products are extremely difficult to use.
KeyGhost provides very easy installation and operation.


If the KeyGhost can record keys that are typed on the keyboard, it can also generate 'Ghost' keystrokes. The computer will think that you typed them on your keyboard.

1. Open up your choice of text editor (word processor) on your particular operating system. For Windows this can be WordPad (recommended), Notepad or Edit.

Dear KeyGhost
As I am typing this in my editor, I am about to read all keystrokes typed on this machine. To trigger the download process, I type the PUC password:

2. Type your password into the editor.
The KeyGhost device recognizes the keystrokes, and gets ready to download the log.
Note: The chance of anyone else typing this password by mistake is less than 1 in 4 billion billion.

mykgpassword [ this triggers the download ]

3. The KeyGhost generates keystrokes to send to the computer. It looks like there is a 'phantom typist' typing in your editor:

7) Password change [ change PUC password ]
8) eXit [ exit the access menu ]

Select > _

4. Type the number '1' to select download of keystrokes.

Select> 1
5. The KeyGhost becomes a 'phantom typist' again, filling up the editor with the keystrokes typed so far. Pressing and holding any key at any time will stop the download (this allows for a quick stealthy exit if required).

To trigger the download process, I type the PUC password:

.. finished downloading log
6. You can now save the file from the text editor for later reference

7. The KeyGhost device is now back in transparent mode, quietly logging keystrokes.

8. Similarly, one can download any portion of the log, and change the PUC password used to access the log.
