Yes. ActivTrak has a team dedicated to answering your questions and helping you implement ActivTrak as effortlessly as possible. We are happy to schedule a live, remote demonstration that highlights everything ActivTrak can do for you, no matter where in the world you are located.
Is it invisible?
Yes. Unless you want a user to know, ActivTrak is invisible. It does not appear in the Add/Remove programs list and is not recognizable from the Task Manager. However, if you download and install the Agent on the user’s device, the browser history will keep that activity.
Does this logging tool affect PC performance at all?
No. Up-to-date and virus-free computers have no issues running ActivTrak. It will not slow your computer down.
Can I capture passwords or key strokes with ActivTrak?
No. ActivTrak does not have a keylogger feature. Internet Monitoring Software that keylogs is sometimes classified as a virus by antivirus programs. We want things to run smoothly for you, so ActivTrak intentionally does not record or monitor keystrokes. This allows us to stay on the safe lists of all popular antivirus software.
Does ActivTrak track the URLs for browser applications, or just the text in the title bar?
For all applications, ActivTrak records the title bar text, but for browsers, it collects data fields including the full URL, IP Address, meta descriptions and much more.
Users at my site may work on multiple workstations. Will ActivTrak work for me?
Yes, you can build reports filtered by user and/or computer. You can also build reports based on Active Directory groups of users or computers.
Is this compatible with macOS, Chrome and other operating systems?
Yes. The ActivTrak tracking Agent is available for Windows, macOS, Chrome OS and a Chrome browser installed on any desktop operating system, including Linux, FreeBSD, and others.
Will it work on terminals?
Yes. Just simply install the Agent on the server. It will monitor each session under Terminal Services. We charge per user, not per computer or workstation, so you pay only for active employees and not machines that sit idle or have no assigned user.
Does ActivTrak recognize idle workstations, even if the screensaver is not active?
Yes. ActivTrak senses mouse and keyboard movement and determines if a user session is inactive, so that actual application usage time is reported in the log and reflected in the statistics. By default, if a workstation is without user input for two minutes, it is considered idle.
How do I deploy the Agent remotely?
Every ActivTrak account comes with a remote Agent installation tool. It allows you to remotely install your ActivTrak Agent on other computers on your Active Directory network.
*Note: You must be on an Active Directory Network, and you must have admin rights over the other computer.
Feel free to download an install utility for the ActivTrak Agent from the following page:
(Account authorization is required.)
Just install the Remote Installer. Point it to your Agent .msi file that you downloaded earlier. Then point it to one of the computers on your network and press Install. You can also use it to uninstall.
The remote installer will only work if you are on a Microsoft Active Directory Network. It will not work for standalone or workgrouped computers such as those running Windows Home version.
You must have admin rights over the computer that will receive the Agent.

Employee monitoring tool ActivTrak brings affordable pricing and an intuitive user interface while avoiding overbearing monitoring features. Instead, it offers employee productivity metrics and team behavior analytics. It's like Google Analytics for your office.
“In West Palm Beach, Ship Sticks says its use of monitoring software ActivTrak paid dividends. Since installing the software, baseline productivity levels—measured as the amount of time employees spend on websites and apps classified as “productive”—have risen from about 60% to north of 85%.”
“We added it as peace of mind to begin with, because we noticed how easy it was to upload and share images of our projects,” she says. “Coincidently, in 2013, our apprentice employee started to use one of our PCs for her own self-employed work.”
Managers should have regular check-ins about goals and progress, just like any other critical KPI. For example, goals could include a 10 percent increase in sales, a 10 percent satisfaction in support and 5 percent less time spent on entertainment websites.
