What is Keylogger in cyber security?

A type of malware that records keystrokes.

A keylogger is a type of malware that records every keystroke made on a computer or mobile device. This information is then sent to the attacker, who can use it to steal passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive data. Keyloggers can be installed through phishing emails, malicious downloads, or physical access to the device. Using antivirus software, keeping systems updated, and being cautious with downloads can help protect against keyloggers.
