    Is this some sort of unique product that has no specification? Can you not read?

    My guess is that no, it doesn't protect against keyloggers. The wireless connection is encrypted, not the input.

    Your encryption key only protects the scancodes wirelessly sent by the keyboard to the receiver so they cannot be "sniffed" over the air by a radio device.

    A hardware keylogger physically attaches to a keyboard and records the keystroke scancodes as they are generated, not the radio signals transmitted by the device over the air.

    Think of it like this: putting a lock on the outside of your door isn't going to stop someone who's already inside your house from stealing your shit.
