What is virtual keyboard?
Virtual keyboard is a feature that appears on the screen and allows you to enter characters using an on screen keyboard. It only becomes visible at fields that requires you to enter a password by clicking on that field. Virtual keyboard has multiple language options; it can be resized by clicking "up arrow" on the top of the virtual keyboard panel.
Why should I use virtual keyboard?
Virtual keyboard is used to reduce the risk of keystroke logging on the host machine. It is more difficult for malware to monitor the display and mouse to obtain the data entered via the virtual keyboard, than it is to monitor real keystrokes. A keylogging attack records every entry made from the physical keyboard and can send this to an attacker.
