Update: The software was hacked
Proving this software was a really bad idea, it was shut down because the parent company was got hacked. The hacker sent offensive emails to users, Illinois State University is mentioned in the story as using the software.
The Proctortrack website has no information, it does guarantee privacy and security however. Evidently that isn’t true:
In-person exams are not dangerous. If instructors don’t want to see students I’m sure they can find someone willing to proctor for them. Does anyone at ISU ever look at the COVID recovery rate? Is ISU staff planning to hide in their basements forever? The source code for this software was released on line according to the first story. It won’t be easy to fix or make parents paying the tuition bills feel secure in allowing their children to put this invasive software on their devices.
