What Is a Keylogger?
A Keylogger (also called keystroke logger) is a program/tool on your computer or mobile that logs the keystrokes you type.
There are two types: hardware keyloggers and software keyloggers. When we talk about keyloggers, we usually refer to software keyloggers.
Some software keyloggers are bundled with other programs, which can help themselves be installed to the computer without people knowing. They are spyware and dangerous for online personal information.
Some other software keyloggers are independent applications which need manually installation and even admin password to install onto your computer. They are normally used as parental monitoring software or employee monitoring software.
The use of parental monitoring keylogger ranges from computers (including Windows & Mac) to mobiles. Nowadays keyloggers are become increasingly powerful. One of them is Aobo Mac Keylogger for Mac OS X users. It’s named keylogger but more than a keylogger with the functions of tracking keystrokes, recording websites, capturing screenshots and sending reports.
