Aobo is a keylogger marketed as a child and employee monitoring tool, but like all keystroke logging software, it can be used to monitor the activities of any computer on which it is installed.

Formerly offered by Awosoft Co., Ltd., and related to the Amac and EaseMon keyloggers, Aobo has both Standard and Professional editions. Aobo is designed to run silently in the background on a host computer, and can only be accessed using a special hotkey set up by the person who installed the software; in addition, Aobo routinely deletes old log files to avoid detection. The software takes desktop screenshots and records keystrokes, web activity, search activity, and instant messenger chat conversations, then forwards these records to an email address or FTP server controlled by whoever installed the keylogger. The Aobo Professional edition is also able to record application and website passwords entered on the system and forward these on to the administrator.
