Privacy Group Denounces Eproctoring | Avast

Nonprofit privacy activist group Fight for the Future has launched a new website that tracks the decisions of major American colleges and universities to either do away with or continue using eproctoring software – apps that, Fight for the Future claims, endanger privacy and use racist algorithms. “The practice has sparked controversy in the U.S., with critics in both academia and government citing privacy concerns and the potential for such software to discriminate against marginalized students,” the group states on the website, which provides links to tweet and email the schools, as well as a petition to sign that calls for the banning of eproctoring apps.
