Matt Sav started this petition to Rutgers University

Proctortrack is a service that monitors students while they are taking tests to ensure that they don't cheat. This service collects information on students that have NOTHING to do with the tests they take at all, such as fingerprint scans off their laptops, Government IDs, screen recordings, facial scans, the exact layout of the rooms they're in, and much more. Nobody has ever had to have their face scanned or their fingerprints lifted to take the SAT or ACT, yet Proctortrack would require this information. This is not only an incredible invasion of privacy, it puts students at incredible risk. Companies like Proctortrack have been hacked in the past, leaving the information they collect exposed to hackers and other online criminals. There is a reason we don't tell people our IDs, passwords, and other personal information, and it is completely unfair to force students to give it to a vulnerable third party employer that will give this information away to "limit their legal liability", as Proctortrack themselves declare they're more than willing to do on their website. Nobody has any of the information that Proctortrack collects except our families and the government, and nobody should have to risk such sensitive information becoming public just to take a test.There are many other ways to take our tests without surrendering extremely personal information to a vulnerable third party company, such as Zoom, web recordings, and almost anything besides Proctortrack. It is blatantly unfair for Rutgers to force kids to surrender this deeply personal information when there are PLENTY of other test taking options than this one, and we would like to use another service to ensure academic integrity that does not include the invasive, unsafe, and unjustified data collection that Proctortrack does. It is both immoral and inappropriate to force students to choose between failing a class or surrendering their personal data, facial scans, fingerprints, and more, ESPECIALLY when there are many other options to ensure academic integrity during the test taking process.
