Overall Satisfaction with ActivTrak

Our organization runs the largest business competition in Eastern Canada on an annual basis. We use ActivTrak to prevent cheating and to preserve the integrity of the competition by assuring that competitors don't access forbidden resources (e.g., communicating with their coaches). We deployed ActivTrak remotely on 500+ computers for the 3-day competition.
  • Setting up alerts when users access software/websites of interest.
  • Grouping users according to their permissions and roles.
  • Scheduling when the tracking agent should function.
  • The ability to bulk remove the tracking agent from multiple computers.
  • The ability to create a remote install link that lasts more than 72 hours.
  • More prompt resolution with ActivTrak support.
  • We were able to identify cases of cheating so it increased the integrity of our competition.
  • Custom alerts to get notified when a user accessed a resource they were not allowed to use.

Did implementation of ActivTrak go as expected?


Would you buy ActivTrak again?


We thought ActivTrak was great for our use case of temporarily monitoring the behavior of people during competitions. It could also be used in an academic setting to enable taking tests remotely on personal computers. We didn't really use the workforce monitoring functionalities so I can't speak to the value of those.
