Data Collection Consent for Desktop Applications
With Hubstaff’s data collection consent feature, you are always in control of what information our desktop time tracking apps collect. Once you’ve provided your consent – you’ll be able to record time.
The data collection pop-up appears each time you start the application and lets you know what type of data your organization records while time tracking. Choosing the “Deny” option will disable the play button on the app, on the other hand, choosing “Allow” will let you start tracking time.
The pop-up contains a list of activity recording features enabled by your organization. This includes the following:
- Mouse and keyboard activity
- Apps used
- URLs visited
