Hijackers tracking

When Hijackers tracking is activated, a picture is taken of people trying to use the computer and the face recognition doesn’t match an authorized person. Starting from version 2.4.3, a notification is displayed when you log back into your session if a hijacker has been captured.




Pictures of attempted Hijackers are available from the Control Center in “Shimmering Verify Lock” tab. Click on the “view Hijackers” button. For more information about hijackers’ configuration, please refer to the information about the settings.
