How to install Auditor for Gmail?


To begin scanning emails using Auditor by Securly, you would need to change certain settings and configure an additional route in your Google Admin Console. Creating a new route would route all emails sent or received by students in an OU to Auditor’s monitoring servers. Auditor would then scan all these emails using Sentiment Analysis and send alerts to your Auditor Dashboard. This document will walk you through the process of setting up the new route necessary for the proper functioning of Auditor by Securly.

Note: Ensure that you have whitelisted in your G Suite and can receive emails from Securly in your inbox. Without this, your Auditor setup will fail as you will not receive the test email from us which indicates that Auditor has started scanning emails. To learn more about this setting, click here.
