Are you looking for a reliable Refrog Keylogger review? If so look no further. In this short article I will let you know everything you need to make a good decision about the refrog keylogger. If you don’t want to read this article then just watch my video version above.
Refrog Keylogger Review – Overview
The refrog keylogger is a keylogger that runs on Windows and MAC computers. You need physical access to the machines to install this app. Once on their computer it will log all their keystrokes. Then you can view them from a remote location if you want.
How To Install the Refrog Keylogger
Installing the refrog keylogger is easy. It installs just like any other app you would put on the computer. There are no special skills needed. What you do need to know is that….
“You will need physical access to the computer to install Refrog Keylogger”
Over at pcTattletale I get asked all the time if you can send them an email and slip a keylogger like pcTattletale or the Refrog keylogger on their computer. Sure it is possible but do you really want that?
I thought about putting this into pcTattletale and realized what kinds of problems it would cause. Let’s say someone signed up for the free trial. Then they spammed out links to hundreds of strangers. Just hoping someone would install the keylogger. It would be a night mere. People’s computers would be hacked all over the place.
Microsoft and Apple would have little choice but to add the Refrog keylogger (or pcTattletale) to their malware list. Then the app will not work easily anymore.
So that is why I decided not let pcTattletale be installed remotely. The guys over at the Refrog keylogger team must be thinking the same thing. That is why in my Refrog Keylogger review I do not think it is a big deal that you need physical access to their computer.
The good news is once you have access either pcTattletale or the Refrog keylogger is easy to install.

Refrog Keylogger Recording Abilities
The Refrog keylogger reminds me of the old pcTattletale. It will log all their keystrokes and do a little more.
Refrog’s keystroke recording is pretty good. I would say it is equal to what I can do with pcTattletale. One thing the Refrog keylogger does that pcTattletale does not do yet is run on a MAC. So if you are using a MAC the Refrog keylogger may be a good deal for you.
But keystrokes are not enough!
Think about how many websites already know your password. Just try to head on over to facebook right now. Did it already know your password?
That is the big let down I hear with pcTattletale and apps like the Refrog keylogger. People just do not type in a lot of passwords these days. You need something more.
Refrog Keylogger Additional Recordings
In my Refrog Keylogger review I want to show you the other things it can record for the reasons I listed above. I said that the Refrog keylogger reminds me of an older pcTattletale. Here is why.
Refrog will show you all the website URLs they went to.
This is great until they use invisible browsing mode. Then Refrog can not get these websites. With the newer pcTattletale it records their screen so you will still see where they went.
The refrog keylogger does this kind of thing a lot. They do it with chat messages and social media:
Again this seems great until they use a new social media site. Keep in mind that the Refrog keylogger can only record the social media sites it was programmed to record (like Facebook). Another disadvantage to this approach is what happens when Facebook changes their website? It will break the Refrog keylogger.
Again this is not that big of a deal if you can easily get access to their computer again to update the refrog keylogger software regularly.
A Different Keylogger Approach
With pcTattletale I saw the short comings of keyloggers like the refrog keylogger years ago. There were simply too many new web browsers and social media sites to keep up with. Instead pcTattletale now makes YouTube like videos of them using the computer. That way you can see everything they do no matter what:
Refrog Remote Monitoring
I looked at the Refrog keylogger and their remote monitoring looks like something that was added after the fact. It will sync up with their website but not very quickly. You will need to wait a few minutes for the website to “see” the keystrokes they typed in.
Now you might not like the Refrog keylogger storing passwords in the cloud. For this reason they give you the option to store all those keystorkes on the computer itself. Then you can just enter a secret key combination to open the hidden refrog keylogger app and see all their keystrokes and passwords.
Refrog Keylogger For Mobile Devices
Sadly the refrog keylogger does not work for iPhone or Android. I am honestly not that surprised. As I said in other articles there are no good iPhone spying apps that still work. So I would not expect to see the Refrog keylogger work for iPhone. But there are lot of good Android spying apps (like pcTattletale).
The refrog keylogger only works on Computers not phones or tablets. For that I would have you check out pcTattletale. pcTattletale is able to make the same YouTube like videos of that they do on their Android phone or tablet:
Since the Refrog keylogger is at its heart a keylogger this does not surprise me that it does not work on any mobile devices.
Refrog Keylogger Pricing
One of the best things about the Refrog keylogger is the price. You can get it for only $69. This makes it one of the most affordable keyloggers you can get. Even pcTattletale is slightly higher at $99 (even though you get 3 devices for that price). If price is important then you should check out the refrog keylogger.
Refrog Keylogger Conclusion
In conclusion the Refrog keylogger has all the basics you need to try to get their passwords. After you have their passwords you can sign into their accounts and see just about everything you want. Just know there are some limitations to the app just in how it is designed.
- Expect to regularly update the app on the computer you are watching. This will be due to software updates the refrog team needs to do to stay current with all the social media sites.
- Know you will need to have physical access to the computer to install this app. It can not be installed remotely (probably a good thing)
- Do not expect mobile device support. The Refrog Keylogger only works on Computers. Not mobile devices. For that look for something like pcTattletale.
What to try something Better?
I truly believe pcTattletale is better than the refrog keylogger for a lot of reasons. But the best thing to do is sign up for the pcTattletale free trial and give it a ty:
