Securly Aware Launch FAQs

Securly Auditor is now Securly Aware. Much more than just a name change, Securly Aware is the next evolution in student safety and wellness. Building on the proven AI reporting and alerting of Securly Auditor, Aware adds powerful new capabilities for student services and safety teams. With Aware, you can:

  • Know who’s at risk of self-harm, suicide, depression, violence, and bullying
  • Proactively support students who demonstrate concerning behaviors
  • Gain a clear picture of each student’s current wellness level
  • Intervene quickly when wellness levels drop
  • Respond to and manage alerts efficiently and effectively

When will these changes take place?

We anticipate Aware being available in October 2022. At that time, you will see changes in Filter and Auditor as detailed in the following questions. In the meantime, we will be opening up opportunities for pilot Aware customers to beta the new functionality shortly. 

How does this affect you if you use both Filter and Auditor?

You will maintain all current functionality. Upon the release of Aware, your previous Auditor instance will automatically become Aware, including an all-new user interface. In Filter, you will no longer see Auditor in the menu bar. All flagged activity will move to Aware and be accessible there.

You’ll also get access to new student wellness features in Aware that we think your student services teams will find invaluable. These new features include: 

Student Wellness Levels

Know each student’s emotional well-being level with color-coded wellness levels.
Wellness levels are an evidence-based tool to help you easily identify at-risk students and respond proactively if levels change for the worse.

Wellness Pathways Widget

When a student’s Wellness Level drops, the student will be presented with a pop-up message containing links to helpful resources defined by you.
You’ll find settings for the Wellness Pathways Widget under Account Settings in the upper left of the new Aware interface.

Think Twice Bullying Intervention

When harmful or threatening language is detected in an email or social post a student is composing, the student will be prompted with a pop-up message encouraging them to reconsider before sending.
You’ll find settings for Think Twice under Account Settings in the upper left of the new Aware interface.

Responder Case Management (optional)

The Responder case management tool — the same case manager that’s been battle-tested and refined by Securly 24 expert analysts — is an optional add-on to Aware.
When Responder is enabled, each flagged alert that is generated by Aware creates a case in Responder, or appends that alert to an existing case if one exists.
Responder makes it easy to assign cases to appropriate staff members.
If you are a 24 customer, you won’t see Responder, as these alerts are managed by the 24 team.

How does this affect you if you use Auditor only but not Filter?

You will be able to deploy the Securly Chrome extension to enable Aware to analyze student browsing data. For information on deploying the Chrome extensions, see these articles:

We will be opening up beta programs for Think Twice, Wellness Pathways Widget, and Google Chat scanning in the coming weeks, and you will also be able to enable those when they are available.

If I have Securly 24, can I use Responder case management?

We’re working on an integration, but you will not have access to Responder’s case management capabilities until this integration is complete.
