An Android keylogger is a surveillance application that monitors an Android phone or tablet. While there are several different types all Android keyloggers share the following characteristics:

1) Capture all keystrokes input on the Android device
2) Captures password input into the Android device
3) Keyloggers for Android are installed locally
4) Keylogger legality is a grey area depending on location as well as usage and “Further Information Regarding Keylogger Applications

The short answer is yes, depending on which country the keylogger is being used in. For the following questions and answer we will assume these questions refer to a typical United States Consumer.

Keyloggers in the U.S. are 100% legal in the U.S. depending on how they are used. Monitoring your child’s activity is legal in most states. Monitoring employee productivity is legal although in certain states it should be disclosed. Here is a recent article featured on AOL about new employer rights regarding employee monitoring

A keylogger can be illegal when it is used for criminal purposes. Stealing information and personal financial information. Prospective users are encouraged to check all Federal, state and local laws prior to using or installing a keylogger.

Employee Monitoring in the Workplace
Why FCC Rules do not Affect Privacy

There are a number reasons to use keyloggers. Keyloggers work very similar to a cloud and in the event of a system crash a quality keylogger will have access to all sensitive data including passwords; while more recent keyloggers can provide entire FTP access to a crashed server or computer.

Employee and parental monitoring is another valid use of both PC and Android keyloggers. Most states in the U.S. allow employers to monitor their employees via mobile and desktop devices. Sometime only those provided by the company, and sometimes their own personal devices.

Parents can often also monitor their minor children’s Android device and personal computers. This has become more and more important as bullying has migrated to the virtual world and can often be difficult if not impossible to stop.

This has proven to increase employee productivity and reduce downtime. While it is not possible to go over employer laws for each state, in general managers most commonly have their prospective employees sign a “no expectation of privacy” statement.

This is not intended as legal advice and prospective keylogger users should consult the appropriate attorney/s for their own federal, state and local laws that may pertain to their use.

The .APk file is no different than any other type of Android application file and is delivered and installed just as a typical Android app. Regardless of which type of Android keylogger is being used the .apk is downloadable in the control panel dashboard that was provided upon purchase. The file is also installable on both rooted and non-rooted Android phone. The installation process does not change for these two types of Android devices however the information captured will change depending on the status of the rooting.


The Android phone or tablet must be running Android 4.0 or newer, this includes:

1) Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0
2) Android Jelly Bean 4.1
3) Android KitKat 4.4
4) Android Lollipop 5.0
5) Android Marshmallow 6.0
6) Android Nougat 7.0

To see which version of the Android OS your device is using, simply follow the instructions in the video tutorial below:

By default, newer Android devices are non-rooted. If you have not gone through the Android rooting process of creating a SuperUser (SU) then the Android device is not-rooted.

If you are uncertain whether or not the device has been rooted there are a few fast and free applications that will let you know instantly:

The Top 3 Google Play Store Apps for Determining Whether an Android device is rooted or not:

1) Root Checker: Currently the top rated application for determining the status of an Android phone or tablet. Root Checker boasts having been installed on over 10 million Android devices and a simple single button “Check for Root” option that will scan for SuperUsers and SU binary.

2) Root Checker Pro: A slightly more advanced version of the original Root Checker listed above. The Root Checker Pro not only checks for rooting in a single tap, but performs the standard SafetyNet audit. SafetyNet emulates the platform that checks for rooting prior to initializing an Android application. For example, a rooted Android phone will not be able to run applications such as Pokemon or even SnapChat because these apps will not run on rooted Android phones unless the root has been “hidden”.

3) RootChecker for SuperUser:Slightly different than the above two options the RootChecker for SuperUser checks for custom ROM applications and flashing. It has no advertisements and is developed by some of Google Play’s top developers. This application is updated more frequently than the above two and is recommended if the other Root Checker’s software road map appears to have not been updated for some time.
