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 when you start the application. It also 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 enabled activity recording features. This includes the following:
- Mouse and keyboard activity
- Apps used
- URLs visited
