PROTECTING DATA ENTERED ON THE COMPUTER
KEYBOARD
Protection of data input on the computer keyboard allows avoiding interception of data that is entered via the keyboard.
Secure Keyboard Input has the following limitations:
Protection of data input from the computer keyboard is available only for the Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla
Firefox, and Google Chrome browsers. When using other web browsers, data entered via the computer
keyboard is not protected from interception.
Secure Keyboard Input is not available in Microsoft Internet Explorer from Windows Store.
Protection of data input from the computer keyboard cannot protect your personal data if a website that requires
entering such data has been hacked, because in this case information is obtained by intruders directly from the
website.
In some browsers (such as Google Chrome), protection of data input may not work for certain types of data
(such as email addresses or numbers).
The preceding list describes the main restrictions in functionality for protection of data input. A full list of restrictions is
given in an article on the Kaspersky Lab Technical Support website (http://support.kaspersky.com/12000).
You can configure protection of data input from the computer keyboard on various websites. After protection of data input
from the computer keyboard is configured, you do not have to take any additional actions when entering data.
To configure protection of data input from the computer keyboard:
1. Open the main application window.
2. Click the button in the lower part of the window.
The Settings window opens.
3. In the Additional section, select the Secure Data Input subsection.
The window displays the settings for secure data input.
4. In the lower part of the window, in the Secure Keyboard Input section, select the Enable Secure Keyboard
Input check box.
5. Specify the protection scope for data input from the hardware keyboard:
a. Open the Secure Data Input settings window by clicking the Edit categories link in the lower part of the
Secure Keyboard Input section.
b. Select the check boxes for categories of websites on which you want to protect data that is entered via the
keyboard.
