Namita raised a concern about the hackathons. She wondered how Unstop tracked students in case of cheating. Because when students are participating in campus hackathons, there’s no chance of cheating. Because everyone is around you.

But when you’re participating in a hackathon online, the chance of cheating gets very high.

To tackle this problem, Unstop tracks the face all the time. It makes sure the person who registered is the same person doing the work in the competition.
