Is using the mouse more secure than using the keyboard? I ask solely because of keystroke loggers.
Consider that if someone is just monitoring a stream of data from your machine, then using the keyboard gives them context. For instance, if I type the URL of my bank in my browser, then login, a stream of keystrokes would reveal this:
That’s pretty significant data if someone is monitoring you. But if you use a bookmark to access your bank, then there’s no URL in the keystroke data, and thus no context to the username and password. This is better, right?
For that matter, do browsers that store your username and password make you more secure? Bottom line: does anything that prevents you from having to type stuff onto your keyword make you more secure? Have bookmarks and saved usernames and passwords narrowed the security hole of keystroke logging?
No definitive answer here. I’m looking for opinions.
