Here at Traqq, we believe in giving employees control over their data and privacy. We are against micromanagement, and employee surveillance and don’t want Traqq to become a tool for fostering a culture of distrust in the workplace.
Every employee gets officially invited to use the app and has to willingly accept the invitation before they can install Traqq and start tracking their time.
Only the employee whose work time is being tracked chooses when to start or stop the time tracker. Traqq won’t track any activity or take screenshots while the timer is off, and won’t start on its own or by employer’s request.
When companies want to spy on employees, it usually comes at the cost of their personal privacy - not under Traqq’s watch though.
Traqq does take screenshots and 10-second video recordings of a user’s screen. However, all captured video clips and screenshots are intentionally blurred to an extent that prevents personal and sensitive information (such as passwords or private messages) from becoming legible.
The blurring of screenshots creates this balance between protecting employees’ privacy and giving managers sufficient info about how the work is being done.
While using time trackers, it’s easy to get distracted and do something personal or unrelated to work without pausing the tracker. However, with Traqq, people have nothing to worry about.
Because we provide users total freedom over their recorded activities and tracked times. People using the app can view and delete any recorded time, screenshot, or video at any given time
Aside from being a time tracker, Traqq is also a tool that enables proper productivity management.
Sometimes tracking apps record keystrokes to ensure that employees are doing productive work. However, you cannot expect the same from Traqq, because it does not work like a keylogger.
It only monitors how active a user is by detecting general keyboard movements, mouse clicks, and scrolls. Traqq then provides insights into productivity by presenting the user’s activity level as a percentage on the dashboard.
Track which apps and websites your employees are visiting and for how long
Take blurred screenshots at random intervals without distracting the user
Take blurred 10-second video clips at random intervals similar to the screenshots
