10 use cases of a virtual keyboard use in mobile Cybersecurity

Reading Time: 2 minutes

1. Preventing keyloggers

A virtual keyboard can prevent keyloggers from capturing sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card numbers.

2. Protecting against screen scrapers

A virtual keyboard can help protect against screen scrapers by obscuring the information being entered.

3. Defending against phishing attacks

A virtual keyboard can help defend against phishing attacks by ensuring that the user enters their login credentials only on the legitimate website. The Fleksy In-App Keyboard SDK is capable of preventing vulnerable virtual keyboards attacking your mobile app by being the only input method available inside your app.

4. Enhancing two-factor authentication

A virtual keyboard can be used to enter the second factor of authentication (e.g., a one-time password) without requiring a physical keyboard.

5. Safeguarding against malware

A virtual keyboard can be used to prevent malware from intercepting keystrokes and capturing sensitive information.

6. Supporting secure data entry

A virtual keyboard can be used to securely enter sensitive data such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and bank account details.

7. Enabling secure messaging

A virtual keyboard can be used to securely enter messages and other confidential information in chat applications and messaging platforms. Try out the Fleksy In-App Keyboard SDK inside your messaging app and ensure a Secure Enclave.

8. Preventing shoulder surfing

A virtual keyboard can be used to prevent shoulder surfing attacks where an attacker looks over the user’s shoulder to capture sensitive information.

9. Supporting remote access

A virtual keyboard can be used to enter login credentials and access sensitive information securely in remote access applications.

10. Ensuring regulatory compliance

A virtual keyboard can be used to meet regulatory compliance requirements for data protection and secure data entry in various industries such as healthcare, finance, and government.
