Deploying the Agent Directly

The direct install is by far the easiest way of installing the Agent. It is important to note, however, that this is not the most recommended installation method if you don't want the user to be aware anything has changed because it leaves a browser history that can be traced back to ActivTrak. If you choose to use the direct install method you can also clear the browser history after installation. 

How To:

1. Using the computer on which you want to install the agent, log into the ActivTrak app.

  • If you have not yet deployed any agents on your account, you will land on the 'Activation' page each time you log into the app. From this page, click the 'Download Agent' button below "Install on your device." A banner will appear at the top of your screen confirming that the installation file has been downloaded.

  • If you have already deployed at least 1 agent on your account, click the blue 'Download Agent' button in the upper-right corner of the screen. The app will detect the workstation’s operating system and automatically push the appropriate Agent version. You can manually select the Agent version by clicking the carrot next to the 'Download Agent' button.


2. Open the downloaded file and complete the steps as prompted by the installer.

3. Log out of ActivTrak.
