The KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger Max is a record-breaking USB hardware keylogger in terms of size, keyboard compatibility, and price. It measures only 0.4" (10 mm) in length, and can be accessed as a USB flash drive for instant data retrieval. It''s by far the most miniaturized and discreet hardware keylogger available on the market. Completely transparent for computer operation, cannot be detected by computer software. The KeyGrabber Forensic hardware keylogger features a sophisticated FPGA chip with a 32X oversampling algorithm, making it compatible with all types of USB keyboards and barcode readers. The Pro version adds keystroke generation features, such as a text menu and HID keystroke injection. It features a built-in scripting language, making in an advanced penetration testing tool.

The KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger is intended to be a professional security and surveillance tool. The record-breaking size of just 0.4" (10mm) ensures full discretion and minimizes the risk of exposure. This hardware keylogger is the end-of-the-line in terms of form-factor miniaturization, as the size is only limited by the physical dimensions of the USB socket and plug.
Passively monitoring a USB bus for keystrokes is a complex task, and the KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger does this better than any other solution on the market. The KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger implements a 32X waveform oversampling algorithm based on a sophisticated FPGA chip. This makes it a top-performer in terms of reliability, with a zero character drop-rate. It works with wireless keyboards (excluding some Bluetooth models), keyboard with integrated hubs, and all types of barcode scanners (including those with a fast keystroke generation speed).
The KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger is as easy to use as all it's predecessors in the KeyGrabber family, being best-sellers since 2005. This hardware keylogger works out-of-the-box by simply plugging it inline between the keyboard and USB socket. Accessing data requires pressing a predefined key-combination known only to the owner. The KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger has a few models varying by memory capacity, however even the entry-level 16 megabyte version is an equivalent of years of typing.
The KeyGrabber Forensic Keylogger is as stealthy as a hardware keylogger can get. It leaves no traces on the target computer, and doesn't propagate anything in the local Wi-Fi environment. It works as a passive USB-tap device, and doesn't show up on the list of USB devices or use any drivers. Thus it cannot be detected by security and anti-virus software.
The Pro version is a multi-role security and pen-testing device. It works as a keylogger, but can also be switched to keystroke generation mode. Operating as a HID device it can generate a text-menu, making access to memory and configuration options more convenient. Moreover, it can also run keystroke-injection scripts thanks to a keystroke parser based on a simple scripting language. This makes it a perfect penetration testing tool, combining the functionality of a hardware keylogger and HID injector in a single slick device.
The usage of a keylogger is fully legal as long as a clear notice is displayed, informing the user of the monitored equipment about the presence of a keystroke logger. We encourage the use of this equipment only for the purpose of monitoring your own computer, especially for protecting children against online hazards. It is NOT LEGAL to use a keylogger for the purpose of intercepting third party data, especially passwords, banking data, confidential correspondence, etc. If in doubt, please seek legal advice before using a keystroke logger. A good starting point is the U.S. Department of Justice Letter on Keystroke Monitoring and Login Banners, according to which a clear notice should be displayed, warning that user keystrokes may be logged.
The device will work with almost all types of physical USB keyboards (it won't work with internal laptop keyboards). It works fine with wireless keyboards, with exception of Bluetooth keyboards. It won't work a few types of keyboards with built-in high-speed USB hubs (primarily Apple A1243 and Dell KB522), for which the Mac/MCP series should be used. Support for some gaming keyboards is not fully guaranteed, as they often use proprietary protocols.
