This is helpful in IT offices for monitoring the job, also can be there for troubleshooting problems. It can also be there for illegally getting access to passwords and other confidential information.
In this article, we will design a keylogger for Windows and Linux. But first, we will have to download some Python libraries, namely pywin32 and pyhook.
We need to save the file in C:\ as keylooger.py and then run the Python file.
The keylogger will start in the background and will save all the data on the log file.
Keylogger in Linux:
