To help fight against malicious keylogging software, Passpack come equipped with a virtual on-screen keyboard.
To make sure the on-screen keyboard doesn't slow down the sign in process for those who aren't interested, we've loaded it into a separate library. To use the keyboards, just click the Show virtual keyboardlink anywhere on the sign in or Packing Key screen.
Once you do that, you'll automatically see the little keyboard icons anywhere in Passpack that requires typing your password or Packing Key. Click the icon to pull up the keyboard.
