how to hack an email using hardware keylogger

software keylogger (or simple keylogger) is a stealth computer program that captures every keystroke entered through the keyboard.
Now I’ll tell you what is a hardware keylogger and how it can be used for hacking an email.

Hardware Keyloggers are used for keystroke logging, a method of capturing and recording computer user keystrokes. They plug in between a computer keyboard and a computer and log all keyboard activity to an internal memory. They are designed to work with PS/2 keyboards, and more recently with USB keyboards. A hardware keylogger appears simply as a USB pendrive (thumb drive) or any other computer peripheral so that the victims can never doubt that it is a keylogger. So by looking at it’s appearence it is not possible to identify it as a keylogger. Here are some of the images of hardware keyloggers for your convenience.
So by looking at the above images we can come to know that hardware keyloggers look just like any USB or PS/2 device. So it is very hard to identify it as a keylogger.

Insatalling a Hardware Keylogger to Hack the Email Password

The hardware keylogger must be installed between the keyboard plug and the USB or PS/2 port socket. That is you have to just plug in the keylogger to your keyboard’s plug (PS/2 or USB) and then plug it to the PC socket. The following image shows how the keylogger is installed.
Once you install the hardware keylogger as shown in the above two images the keylogger starts recording each and every keystroke of the keyboard including email passwords and other confidential information. The hardware keylogger has an inbuilt memory in which the logs are stored.
