The article concerns Kaspersky Security Cloud — Family and Personal.

When you enter the information from the keyboard, criminals can intercept it using spying software secretly installed on your computer. Spyware registers keystrokes whenever you are using a hardware keyboard. Use Kaspersky Security Cloud’s On-Screen Keyboard to prevent your data from being intercepted.

It supports the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, 11.0 and later* 
    Internet Explorer versions 8.0–11.0 in the new Windows interface style are not supported
  • Microsoft Edge based on Chromium and later*
  • Microsoft Edge (all versions)
  • Mozilla Firefox 52.x–65.x and later*
  • Mozilla Firefox ESR 52.x–60.5 and later*
  • Google Chrome 48.x–68.x and later*
*Support of newer versions of these browsers is possible, but not guaranteed in full.

To start using On-Screen Keyboard after you install Kaspersky Security Cloud, restart the computer and enable the Kaspersky Protection extension. See this article for instructions.

On-Screen Keyboard cannot protect your data from interception if you enter it on a website that has been hacked.
