The French Data Protection Authority (CNIL) announced in a press release on 20 March 2013 that keyloggers, (software allowing to record all actions undertaken by any person on his / her computer), could only be used in a professional context in cases of "strong safety requirements, and with the specific information of the persons concerned". Using keyloggers without informing the data subjects is now punished by 5 years of imprisonment and a 300 000€ fine (1 500 000€ for corporate bodies), in accordance with the provisions of the LOPPSI Law.
