Elite Keylogger Review

Good, functional and easy to use keylogger. Good for home monitoring. Has nice and very handy interface. Available in 3 languages. Supports both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP. In our testing, it gets 723 out of possible 1131 points.

Advantages:
  • Pleasant to look at, user friendly interface
  • Great URLs interception
  • Great log transfer options
  • Great stealthiness level

Disadvantages:
  • Zero file activity monitoring
  • One side interception in messengers

In order to install Elite Keylogger, we passed through the following windows: Installer Language (English, Russian and Spanish are available) → EULA → Warning (recommending us to turn all the security software for the period of keylogger's installation off and allowing us to show Elite Keylogger's unhide instructions after reboot) → Another Warning (recommending us to create a System Restore point) → Choose Components (Invisible Mode, Logs Viewer only) → Automatic uninstallation (allowing us to set a date for Elite Keylogger's automatic uninstallation). After Elite Keylogger was installed, it asked us to reboot the system immediately. We pressed OK and waited for our PC to boot.

We had marked "Show instructions on unhiding program after reboot" during the installation, so the first thing we saw once the system started was the screen informing us about the keyword that should be typed in order to start Elite Keylogger. We also noticed that the installation file of the keylogger had been removed during the reboot. So, we typed the keyword, clicked "Continue demo", created a password, confirmed it and Elite Keylogger's window opened.

The interface of keystroke logger is very beautiful and thought-out. The main window is split into two sections: the main part and a right column. All the logged information is grouped into categories located in the upper part of the column; the lower part of the column contains a calendar where one can choose a date to generate the log for. The recorded information is shown in the main part of the window. The interface leaves an impression of a one made with love to the product: tiny icons, pleasant fonts, soft colors, etc. It's a pleasure to use a pc monitoring software made with such an attention to the detail!

Elite Keylogger runs on both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP.

The security of Elite Keylogger is on a very high level, which makes this keylogger one of the most invisible and undetectable ones in our test. The developer of this stealth computer monitoring software claims that thanks to the driver-based technology, it remains invisible both to users and to anti-virus, anti-rootkit and anti-spyware software. Its folder is invisible, it can be accessed by typing a keyword and is protected with a password. As it was said before, Elite Keylogger can be configured to uninstall itself automatically after a pre-specified period of time. There is no hotkey combination that should be pressed to access the keylogger, it can't be installed remotely and its users won't be able to configure text of a warning message to be shown on a system start.

As for the monitoring, Elite Keylogger logs keystrokes, clipboard content, started applications, and printed documents. It also makes screenshots and allows its user to configure their quality, to set a period of their making and to choose whether a picture of an entire desktop or of an active window only should be made. It is strange that Elite Keylogger detects both log on time and password but doesn't record system log off time.

This internet usage monitor perfectly logs all the visited URLs in all the browsers we used in our testing. It also shows the content of both sent and received emails. Unfortunately, log files of Elite Keylogger show only one side of chat conversations made in instant messengers.

As for the reports, Elite Keylogger provides its users with many options. They can perform a search in reports, edit a list of users and programs to be monitored, set the maximum size of the log files and configure their auto-clearance. There is no type of logs delivery in our testing that Elite Keylogger doesn't support: you can use email, FTP, LAN or USB device to send log files. Unfortunately, users of this monitoring software have no option to choose the logs for a certain period of time, thus will need to generate a separate report for each of the days.

It is also bad that Elite Keylogger can't react to a pre-specified keyword, block websites and programs. On the other hand, the intervention of the spy software in the computer's work can reduce its level of invisibility, so this method of data collection has its advantages.

This keylogger program can work on schedule and is available not only in English, but also in Russian and Spanish.

Summing it up, we can say that Elite Keylogger is a good keylogger with a very pretty interface that is just a pleasure to work with. Its remote monitoring features doesn't allow us to recommend it for employee monitoring at a big company with a large number of PCs, yet it makes Elite Keylogger a good tool for employee surveillance for small business, home pc monitoring, and parental control in case you need outstanding invisibility.
