Hi peoples
For security purposes is it safer to use the on screen keyboard in windows when logging into sites using your password etc.
For instance do keyloggers pickup this or is it hidden.
Just a curious question?

It would help if you have a hardware keylogger but I don't think it would help if you had a much more common software keylogger.

It really all depends on the keylogger. Some pick it up and some don't. If your keylogged and absolutely must log into something opening multiple windows of the same thing and entering your password bit by bit on one window while switching and typing in random characters and deleting and what not can usually hide your password enough to keep it from being detected.
