Deploying the Agent Directly

When performing a direct install, simply click the 'Download ActivTrak Agent' button, as the app knows what operating system you're on, and will automatically push the correct agent to download.

This button can be found at


The direct install is by far the easiest way of installing the Agent, but not the most recommended if you don't want the user to be aware anything has changed, as it leaves a browser history that can be traced back to ActivTrak.

To Directly Install the ActivTrak Agent:

1. Go to the workstation you wish to monitor

2. Log into your ActivTrak account

3. Click the button labeled 'Download ActivTrak Agent' Located in the top right corner of your Dashboard.

4. Open the file you just downloaded, then complete the steps as prompted by the installer.

5. Log out of ActivTrak

6. [Optional] Clear browser history and cache from the workstation.


Here is a short tutorial demonstrating this process:
