Hooker – Keylogging Tool for Windows
Review by on
Denis Kozlov’s Hooker application will run in the background, silently and out sight, and it will record all the keys that are pressed and all the text that is copied to the clipboard. All the information that Hooker captures will be displayed on its interface and at the same time it will be stored in a log file.

Hooker is portable software that doesn’t need to be installed. To get started with Hooker, you will have to download an archive, extract its contents, and run the Hooker executable. Please note that the aforementioned archive is password protected and the password is "hooker." According to the developer, Hooker is compatible with any Windows edition from Windows 98 onward.

Three main elements are displayed on Hooker’s interface. Starting from top to bottom: a traditional File Menu; a toolbar with buttons to Start, Stop, Hide and Exit the application; a main panel that presents all the information Hooker collected.

Minimizing Hooker works the same as pressing the Hide button, meaning that it will hide Hooker out of sight. To bring it out of hiding, you will have to use a hotkey: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + F9 or F10, F11, and F12. If this hotkey is a bit long and you would like to change it, I have some bad news for you. There is no way to edit this default hotkey.

Hooker silently runs in the background and records all key strokes and all the text that is copied to the clipboard. This information is stored locally, in a log file which you can access with the built-in log viewer. From the Settings menu you can configure Hooker to upload the log file to a FTP server and/or send it via email.

Hooker is available as a Lite version which is free for non-commercial use and as a paid Pro version. I bring this up because I want to mention that the option to start in hidden mode and the option to password protect access to Hooker is not available in the Lite version.

The developer explained that this application’s name comes from the programming term "hook."

Let’s not mince words: Hooker is keylogging utility. If you need a keyboard activity spy, then you’re very well advised to give this portable tool a try.

Pros
Hooker is portable software and doesn’t need to be installed. The interface is as straightforward as possible. Hooker hides out of sight and silently runs in the background, recording all key strokes and all the text that is copied to the clipboard. Hooker Lite is free for personal, non-commercial use.

Cons
Hooker Lite doesn’t let you use the password protection feature and the "start in hidden mode" feature.

You can download Hooker free here.
