Monitor keystrokes and other activities remotely.

How to Spy


Before downloading this software, please disable your antivirus to avoid false alerts. After installation, you can simply add Free Keylogger Remote to the exceptions list, and then re-enable your anti-virus. To download Free Keylogger, please click the big "Download" button at the right side of this page. After installation you will see a Quick user guide. We strongly recommend to complete all lessons of that guide if you didn't used other keyloggers before.

The main program window is available from the tray icon:

Simply call the context menu (click at that icon with the right button of your mouse), and select the "Open" item.


You will see the large main window with the toolbar, the pages "Keystrokes", "Clipboard", "Web surfing", "Applications" and "Screenshots". This is where you will read your spy reports. Simply go to desired tab, for example, "Web surfing", and click button to update the data for the current dat. You can choose any date in the Calendar combo, which is located under the toolbar:

Choose desired date, and you will see the updated recordings in the tabs. You can delete the reports for the current day - click the Delete -> For picked date; or you can remove all reports - choose Delete -> For all time.

On the toolbar you can see the following buttons:

Use these buttons if you want to pause monitoring.

This is a very important button. All configurations are available there:


General Settings. Enable "Autostart with Windows" if you would like to monitor computer every day, without your presence. The keylogger will be launched every day automatically with the Windows startup.

The second options if important too. Once enabled, Free Keylogger will hide its icon automatically on startup. So other users of computer will not uncover the keylogger.

But if keylogger is invisible, how can you get it back? You will have to press the secret key combination (hotkey). Please open the Invisibility tab in the Settings. You will see the default hotkey.

You can change it any time. Just set the cursor on the text field, and press desired combination on your keyboard.

The second text field is your password. It is blank by default, but if you enter your password there, you can protect keylogger in this way. Every time you will press the hotkey to unhide keylogger, you will be prompted to enter the password. Otherwise you will not get access to Remote Keylogger.

"Hide in start menu" and "Hide in Uninstall list" options allows you to make Free Keylogger invisible in the Windows Start Manu, and in the Add/Remove Programs List.

"Email delivery" is the next tab on the Settings window. One this optin turned on, you can receive spy reports directly to your email box. This means you can spy remotely, without daily access to computer where keylogger is running. Enable this option, type your email, and ... that's all. You are ready to spy like a pro. Remotely.

Of couse, if you want to use your own email box for sending the reports (by default program uses our server), you can disable the "Use default SMTP to send emails". Then enter your data into the field below. So make sure you have enabled all monitoring tools on the first tab (all options except of Keylogging are disabled by default). Then click "OK" button.

Now you can either click the button on toolbar, either simply close the window. You will see a dialog confirming that keylogger is hidden, but the monitoring will continue.

Remote Reporting

If you have enabled the Email Delivery option, and entered correct email, please make sure you have added Free Keylogger Remote to the exceptions of the Firewall. Otherwise it may blocks keylogger, so you will not receive your reports.

The free keylogger always sends the reports for the previous day. For example, you will receive email on Saturday with the reports for Friday. Why? The keylogger simply don't know when the user plans to shut down his computer, so the reports for the current day may be incomplete. That's why it always sends the reports on startup, for the previous date of monitoring.

You will receive reports from the [email protected] (if you didn't used your own smtp). Please make sure your antispam filters don't block this email. The reports will be attached to email as a single file with the ".dat" extention. But in fact, this is a compressed ".zip" file. The keylogger renames it to .dat because many antispam filters block emails with the .zip attachements.

Please save attachement somewhere on your computer, then rename ".dat" to ".zip". Then unpack the file. If you used a password option in the settings of remote keylogger, you will be asked for this password. Actually we recommend to use the password in the Settings, because this will guarantee the safety and security of the reports.

After the reports are unpacked, you will see the several folders with the text files inside. You can read these files with your favorite text editor, for example, with Notepad.

Please note that the screenshots are not included because they always have too big size for delivery through email.

Uninstall Keylogger

How to remove our software from the system? You can click the button at the toolbar, or select the corresponding item from the tray menu. The third way is to disable the "Hide in Uninstall List" option in the settings. Then uninstall through the standard Windows Uninstall List. The last method is the simple removal of Free Keylogger Remote' installation folder.


If you haven't received email with your spy reports. Possible reasons:

1) Keylogger was removed by antivirus or by user;
2) There was no Internet connection on the monitored computer;
3) Firewall blocked Free Keylogger from sending reports.
4) Key logger always delivers report for the PREVIOUS day, so don't expect to receive the report at the same day you installed the software. .
