Popular eproctoring apps like Proctorio use racist algorithms that are less able to detect dark-skinned faces. Take our test below. Unlike with Proctorio, no data is collected by the widget we built here using the same computer vision software Proctorio uses.

We asked prominent colleges and universities if they plan to use eproctoring in the 2021 fall semester. Some were happy to provide a statement confirming that their school is not using eproctoring and WON’T USE it in the future. Others MIGHT USE , since they either failed to respond to our requests, or they issued a statement implying they might use this tech in the future. Even worse, many schools ARE USING invasive proctoring apps and plan to do so in the fall. Scroll down to see whether or not your campus is experimenting on you.

Invasive proctoring apps are endangering the privacy and the education of students worldwide. This experimental technology can grant access to all corners of students’ computers, gather biometric data, and use false science to decide if students are cheating or not.
