Ghostpress
Stay safe from keyloggers

Ghostpress is a free tool which tries to prevent your keystrokes being recorded by malware.

The program is tiny, and, crucially, portable. If you regularly work on other PCs, Ghostpress could offer some welcome protection.

Basic use is very straightforward. The Protection tab displays a green "Protected" icon when your keypresses are safe, a red "Unprotected" cross when you're not, and simply clicking the icon toggles the current state.

There are also a few basic options, including starting the program with Windows, setting it to be "always on top", or running as a desktop gadget for speedy access at any time.

Does it work? There's no way to tell for sure, but we tried a couple of commercial keyloggers and Ghostpress blocked them both, which is encouraging.

v1.3

+Portable parameter (settings wont be saved)
+Romanian translation (Thanks to Arthur)
+Portugese translation

Verdict:

It'll take a lot more testing to figure out how effective Ghostpress might be, but it did block our two keyloggers, which is a good start. If you work on other people's PCs and currently have no keylogger protection, give this one a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.22

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.21

• You can now ask Siri to read your latest messages (iOS 10.3+)
• Visual improvements to the Calls tab, Contact Info and Group Info screens 
• In the My Updates screen, you can now select multiple statuses at once and forward or delete them
• Support for Persian
