rvlkl.exe

Have you noticed your PC acting strange? Or you’ve encountered an unfamiliar process running in the background and want to be cautious? Whatever your experience with rvlkl.exe is, keep reading.

This is a Windows 11 keylogger, and it’s usually harmful software, especially if you didn’t install it yourself on your PC.

In this guide, we’ll share all essential information about the rvlkl.exe file and whether you should keep it or toss it. Let’s get right into it.

What is rvlkl.exe?

The rvlkl.exe process is part of Revealer Keylogger, Logixoft’s software for monitoring and recording, and it does the following:

  • Keeps track of every keystroke you make.
  • It captures everything you type, including sensitive information.
  • Exposes your sensitive information to third parties.

While this specific software wasn’t created for stealing and abusing such information, if you didn’t install it on your PC, it’s likely that you’ve been hacked.

However, keyloggers are widely abused due to their immense malicious potential and intrusive nature. So, be wary of its warning signs: slower PC, weird mouse movements and keyboard redirects, random changes in settings or system crashes, etc.
