Use On-Screen Keyboard with KeePass



On-Screen Keyboard can be used to enter master password and other information such as a password entry. The purpose of using On-Screen Keyboard is to avoid keystrokes that could be tracked by keyloggers.

There are two On-Screen Keyboards to use:

  1. Windows built-in On-Screen Keyboard (only on Win2k/WinXP).
  2. KeePass On-Screen Keyboard plug-in.

Use Windows built-in On-Screen Keyboard Windows On-Screen Keyboard is a utility that displays a virtual keyboard on your screen and allows users with mobility impairments to type data using a pointing device or joystick. It is also useful for users who do not know how to type.
