This extension lets you take Honorlock proctored online exams using the Google Chrome browser. This is a single purpose extension.

Honorlock’s automated proctoring solution requires no logins and no scheduling. No longer will students need to schedule a time in order to take an online exam. The whole point of taking online courses is that you can complete them on your time and at your pace. Honorlock will always put the student first and strive to be as invisible to the student as possible.

Honorlock Automated Proctoring Highlights:

  • Honorlock will only monitor you during your exam session. Once your exam is completed, you can remove the Honorlock extension with no issue.
  • We gather as little personally identifiable information as possible. The information we do gather has never and will never be shared or sold to any third party.
  • When first installing the Honorlock Extension, Google Chrome will ask your permission for the access and features we need in order to effectively monitor your exam session.

Speaking of permissions, here are the permissions we require to use the Honorlock extension, but most importantly, why we require them:

  • READ AND CHANGE ALL THE DATA ON THE WEBSITES YOU VISIT
    • The only reason we need this permission is to allow your professors the ability to block non-exam sites from being accessed. On the professors exam settings dashboard, they are able to choose which sites their students can and can’t visit during the exam session. Other than this, we do not remove or make changes to any websites you visit.
  • COMMUNICATE WITH COOPERATING WEBSITES
    • During your exam session, Honorlock may need to send and request data from the learning management system in order to ensure the exam is being proctored as the instructor intended.
  • CAPTURE CONTENT OF YOUR SCREEN

    if you honestly care this much about students cheating, just schedule a meeting which each one for an hour, in a empty classroom with only you two, and stare at them the entire time they take the test. If they flinch, move, or fidget tell them they failed the test and can't take it again, because honestly that's better than whatever this is.

    Absolutely do not install this on your work computer if you're taking classes and employed. I'm on the verge of getting fired for whatever this program is doing behind the scenes.
