KeyGen is a software that enables you to generate the serial number, license key or the necessary information to activate and use a software tool or application. KeyGen accomplishes this by using a random number generator that creates the keys and then displays them in a text editor automatically. When using KeyGen you can be traced through your IP address, which discloses various personal details about you. To protect your privacy and remain anonymous when using KeyGen, use Hide My IP, which is a software that hides your IP serial with a different one.
