Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to schedule my exam?

No. Proctorio is fully automated and never requires scheduling, so you can take your exam at any time without waiting or paying a penalty.

Do I need a password to take my exam?

No. Proctorio integrates with your school's learning management system so you don't need a separate password to take a test.

Is someone watching me while I take my exam?

No. If your institution requires video, audio, or screen capture, Proctorio will store that data and provide an automated suspicion report to your instructor. No Proctorio employee has access to this data.

How do I know that my privacy is protected?

Proctorio uses zero-knowledge encryption technology that ensures your information is encrypted when it leaves your computer, is transferred, and then stored in the cloud.

Will Proctorio ever obtain or give out my personal information?

Never. Proctorio does not and cannot collect any unencrypted personally identifying information on any user, so there's nothing to give to third parties.

Who can view my exam recordings?

Only authorized school officials can unlock and view the exam recordings, not Proctorio. Additionally, our state-of-the-art, double-encryption technology ensures that all of your exam data is safe from hackers.
