Protecting against keyloggers

Keylogging makes it possible for a hacker to capture all of a user’s keystrokes in order to steal passwords, confidential data, etc. These are targeted applications.

SES Evolution prevents foreground applications from sending their keystrokes to other applications. However, it can receive its own keystrokes.

For more global protection against any use of the SetWindowsHookEx API, enable protection against application hooking instead. For more information, refer to Protection against various threats and Configuring threat protection.

You can use this protection to block keylogging on web browsers, password managers, and the Windows file explorer. Allow them only for legitimate applications such as virtualization and remote control tools.
