The CNET Editors awarded KeyScrambler Personal four stars out of five in their recent review. Here's an excerpt from the review:

"Although antivirus software is often able to detect and eliminate such programs [keyloggers], they're not foolproof. KeyScrambler Personal promises to encrypt your keystrokes at the level of your keyboard driver and decrypt them when they reach your browser so they're visible to you. Sounds good in theory, but does it work? We can't guarantee that it's perfect, but we can say that it worked just fine when we tried it." Read the rest of the review

KeyScrambler Personal is recommended as "Top 50: The best free security tools" on PCWelt.de (PCWorld.Germany):

"Nothing is worse than an attack by a Keylogger, which reads the keystrokes of the user and releases the user names and passwords. The free version of KeyScambler, KeyScrambler Personal, is intended as an add-on for Firefox and Internet Explorer. All keystrokes will be encrypted and only decrypted by the browser application. This ensures that keyloggers cannot get the actual keystrokes."
