Only your instructor and LCC eLearning administrators can access Honorlock exam recordings. eLearning administrators will only view recordings if the instructor needs assistance or there’s an issue with the video.

While Honorlock is safe and does not spy on your network, there are extra steps you can take to feel more comfortable.
