                    This small python script can do really awesome work.

TechNowLogger is Keylogger Generator for Windows/Linux, which sends key-logs & screenshot via email with other juicy target info written in Python 3.


💻 This project was created only for good purposes and personal use.



  • [x] Works on Windows/Linux
  • [x] Notify New Victim Via Email
  • [x] Undetectable
  • [x] Persistence
  • [x] Sends Screenshot of Victim PC's Screen via email
  • [x] Creates Executable Binary With Zero Dependencies
  • [x] Create less size ~ 5mb payload with advance functionality
  • [x] Obfusticate the Payload before Generating it, hence Bypassing few more antivirus
  • [x] Generated Payload is Encryted with base64, hence makes extremely difficult to reverse engineer the payload
  • [x] Function to Kill Antivirus on Victim PC and tries to disable the security
  • [x] Awesome Colourful Interface to generate payload
  • [x] On Attacker Side: While Creating Payload, Script Automatically Detects Missing Dependencies & Installs Them
  • [x] Distinguish Log Data on the Basics of Active Window Name (Check v1.3 Image for Better Understanding)
  • [x] Able to add custom Icon to evil file (New Argument is Added in v1.3 & onward version)
  • [x] Built-in Binder which can bind Keylogger to Any File [.pdf, .txt, .exe etc], Running legitimate file on front end & evil codes in back-end as a service. (New Argument is Added in v1.4 & onward version)
  • [x] Checks for Already Running Instance on System, If running instance found, then only legitimate file is executed [Multiple Instance Prohibiter to avoid Same Muliple Logs Email].
  • [x] Attacker can Create/Compile for Both Windows/Linux OS Using Linux System, But Can only Create/Compile Windows Executable using Windows Machine
  • [x] Retrieves Saved Passwords from victim System and sends it to Attacker.
Built-in Stealer Can Steal These Things :
Chrome Browser (Saved Password)
WiFi (Saved Password)
Chrome Cookies (Login Data, Cookies, History)
Firefox Cookies (cookies.sqlite)

Note: Custom Stealer is Coded, does not relies on LaZagne

  • [x] Grabs & Send Useful Information of Victim's Device
These Things are Grabbed & Sended:
Operating System
Computer Name
User Name
Public IPv4
  • [x] If your payload is unable to execute, then specify --debug to run exe on foreground with CMD

Tested On

Kali) Kali Linux - ROLLING EDITION

Windows) Windows 8.1 - Pro

Windows) Windows 7 - Ultimate


  • [x] Python 3.X
  • [x] Few External Modules

Debug Issues

Try to Run Offline Keylogger in order to test Offline Key logs capturing & Debug keylogger issues by running these commands:

Run In both the modes [Compiled & Raw] and figure out whats the error

Run it like this : python

Also Compile it like this: pyinstaller --onefile --hidden-import=win32event --hidden-import=winerror --hidden-import=win32api --hidden-import=pynput.keyboard

After running it, Start typing something, Result will be displayed on the Command prompt after every 10 seconds

Offline keylogger's files are present in TestKeylogger Folder

  • If payload is unable to execute on victim's system
1. Create a new payload with --debug flag
2. Run payload exe throught cmd [Don't Execute Payload By Double Clicking It]
3. It will now give more appropriate error in CMD, just put that issue in Issue Section

Removing TechNowLogger in Windows:

Method 1:

  • Go to start, type regedit and run the first program, this will open the registry editor.
  • Navigate to the following path Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run There should be an entry called svchost, right click this entry and select Delete.
  • Go to your user path > AppData > Roaming, you’ll see a file named “svchost.exe”, this is the RAT, right click > Delete.
  • Restart the System.

Method 2:

  • Run "RemoveTechnowLogger.bat" in Infected System and then restart the PC to stop the current Running Evil File.

Removing TechNowLogger in Linux:

  • Open Autostart file with any text editor, Autostart File Path: ~/.config/autostart/xinput.desktop

  • Remove these 5 lines:

       [Desktop Entry]
  • Note: destination_file_name is that name of evil_file which you gave to your Keylogger using -o parameter

  • Reboot your system and then delete the evil file stored this this below path

  • Destination Path, where Keylogger is stored : ~/.config/xnput
