To activate Anti-Keylogger check the Use Anti-Keylogger checkbox.

If Anti-Keylogger is active, the menu item Password->Anti-Keylogger is marked with a check sign in the menu. In addition, there is a Protect button in the software toolbar that shows the status of Anti-Keylogger: a shield picture with a cross means that Anti-Keylogger is not active, a shield picture without the cross means that the Anti-Keylogger protection is active.

Before activating Anti-Keylogger it is recommended that you type something in the Test edit box just to verify that Anti-Keylogger will work properly on your computer. You should see exactly the same symbols that you are typing. If Anti-Keylogger is enabled, a small red cursor will appear under the password edit controls when you enter passwords for encrypted volumes.
