I have anxiety issues, I don't feel comfortable with someone watching me and being flagged because of a neighbor is being too loud or looking at my own work sheet.

This is a horrible piece of technology that is inequitable and an enormous invasion of privacy.

HonorLock received funding of $11.5 million from a private equity firm called Defy Partners. Just a quick look into this company, I was able to find out that both Neil Sequiera (the managing director mentioned in the linked article) as well as Trae Vassallo (another managing director and co-founder of Defy) both have strong links (they are board members) to other companies located in big data analytics or business intelligence sectors (i.e. they work for companies that profit off of mass data collection).

Honorlock is a terrible form of online proctoring.

I don't even have a desk in my room, and Honorlock will not let me take the exam without a desk.
