Be careful with wireless keyboards

Another day, another article about data vulnerabilities. This time the problem is wireless keyboards. Apparently several brands of wireless keyboards use no encryption whatsoever, and merely rely on obscure radio frequencies for minimal security. This leaves the end user open to key logging as well as key insertion. In other words someone could capture everything you type, or type directly on your computer. Your only recourse would be to unplug your wireless keyboard dongle / receiver. If you have a wireless keyboard from one of the brands listed in the article, you should switch to another brand or even a wired keyboard. I have been using the Logitech K750 for a few years and I love it. First off, Logitech is not one of the brands listed in the article. The keyboard has a low profile, tactile keys and the best part: it is solar powered so there are no batteries to die and replace. I recommend it.
