How Do I Know If Screenshots Are Being Taken in Hubstaff?

You can enable your system’s notification settings to know if screenshots are being taken. Hubstaff will record screenshots as long as you are tracking time to a project or task.

The number of screenshots taken depends on the organization settings (the app is able to record 1-3 screenshots every 10-minutes, or you can turn off screenshots if you prefer).

Access your screenshots by clicking on the Activity tab on your sidebar then click Screenshots.


When the screenshot notification setting is enabled on the desktop application, a pop-up will show every time it captures your screen, depending on your app’s preferences setting.

Below are images of what the screenshots notification looks like in different operating systems:
