Keylogger feature end of support

Microsoft continues its efforts to deliver the best cyber-security solution for Windows 10 and 11 by using cloud-based AI and machine learning. Here is a short guideline on how Microsoft identifies potentially unwanted applications (link)  in an automated way. Key logging, invisible working mode, and hidden installation are one of the features that make software potentially dangerous and support malicious misuse of the application. KidLogger team will continue to respond to these changes and adapt features to continue the development of privacy-compliant Parental Control services.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, computer surveillance solutions start being used more widely and thus require more regulation to preserve privacy and safety for computer workers, including children. KidLogger will support the software compliance initiatives offered by Microsoft to regulate computer monitoring solutions. Today, it is time to say goodbye to the “keylogger” feature. Since June 2022 some 'privacy' related features in KidLogger service will be discontinued and removed from the control panel and Windows application. In parallel, KidLogger will continue to integrate into the Windows Parental Control framework to offer the best solutions for digital parenting. 

The list of changes in KidLogger application:

  • the Keylogger feature will be removed;
  • The Cam shot feature will be removed;
  • the sound recording feature will be removed.
  • Always active icon will be added to notification area near Windows clock. 
  • Continue Integration with Windows Parental Controls: possibility to remotely lock and unlock the computer by using smartphone app.

If you still need the features that were removed, you can use old versions of the KidLogger application for Windows. You will need to add the Downloads folder to the list of exclusions of the Windows defender or other antivirus application.
