After reading my post about how Mumbai’s cops are installing keystroke loggers in Mumbai’s cybercafes, reader VatsaL wrote in with a safeguard:
start > programs > accessories > accessibility > on-screen keyboard
keyloggers won’t be able to deal with those
although some are programmed to take a screen capture every time a mouse is clicked,
on-screen keyboard > settings > hover to select > ok.
I always practice that at all cybercafes, never know what they have in there
just the perfect recipie for a delicious pc. virus rotten, spyware salted? no worries.
macs come naturally flavoured.
That’s a good safety measure. To add to that, change your email password often, especially when you return to a safe computer after having used one at a cyber cafe or somebody’s place. You don’t want Hawaldar Tambe reading all your flirty emails.
