Some keyloggers can take screen shots of your computer monitor and your activity, watch emails and your online chats, and more. Keyloggers are sometimes legitimately installed to monitor an employee’s or child’s computer activity. But even when keyloggers are installed without malicious reasons, keyloggers work secretly, without your knowledge.
