QuickKeylog is a hacking tool. Though these programs are legitimate and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.
QuickKeylog logs keystrokes entered by the affected user and stores them in a hidden and encrypted file, which is accessible for the user who installed it only.
QuickKeylog does not pose a risk by itself, but it can be used with malicious intentions.
QuickKeylog is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
