KeyGrabber Pico - Keylogger lineup


Size is an unquestionable advantage in surveillance, security, and forensic applications of hardware keyloggers. And with 0.8" (20 mm) in length, the KeyGrabber Pico is one of the smallest hardware keyloggers available on the market!

KeyGrabber Pico - Easy access

Record mode

Installation of the hardware USB keylogger in record mode is quick and easy. Simply plug it in between the USB keyboard and the USB port. No software or drivers are required. The USB keylogger will automatically start recording all data typed on the keyboard to the internal flash disk.

Playback mode (Flash Drive)

Once data has been captured in record mode, you can retrieve it on any computer with a USB port. This is done by switching to Flash Drive mode. The USB hardware keylogger and keyboard should be connected in the same way, as in record mode.

Each device has a built-in 3-key combination (by default K, B, S). Press these 3 magic keys simultaneously to trigger Flash Drive mode. The keylogger will automatically respond as a mass storage device.

The Flash Drive will contain the file LOG.TXT with a text log of all captured data. Keystroke data is formatted in the same as it would appear on the screen, with special keys in brackets ([Ent], [Esc], [Del] etc.). This file can be viewed and searched with any text editor, such as Notepad or MS Word.

KeyGrabber Pico - Compatibility


The KeyGrabber family is compatible with all types of USB keyboards and barcode readers. Just connect the keylogger in-line with the keyboard, and all keystroke data will be recorded. The keylogger is 100% stealthy and does not pop-up as a system device.

Configuration options

The USB hardware keylogger may be configured through the file CONFIG.TXT, placed in the Flash Drive root folder. Use any text editor to prepare such a configuration file, containing the following text:


Copy this file to the root folder in Flash Drive mode. The configuration will be loaded on next record mode initialization.

National keyboard layouts

It is possible to enable a national layout for language-adapted keyboards, such as French, German etc. This will allow national characters to get logged properly (including those with Alt Gr), such as ö, ß, ó etc. The following example demonstrates the advantages of applying the German national layout.

Text logged with layout Text logged without layout
Keylogger (PS/2 & USB) Kezlogger )PS-2 / USB=

To enable a national layout, the appropriate layout file named LAYOUT.USB must be placed in the hardware keylogger root folder. The file must be copied in Flash Drive mode (no access to the flash disk in record mode). Layout files may be obtained from the CD-ROM attached with the device or from the download section. The flash disks main folder should contain the file LAYOUT.USB and the standard log file LOG.TXT.

To enable the layout, safely remove the flash disk. On record mode initiation, the layout file will be loaded automatically.
