Safeguarding measures

Evisense takes looking after your data extremely seriously and has robust measures in place to ensure your data is properly protected.

Safeguarding measures in place on the Evisense app #

  • Disable access – if you lose a device, access to this device can be revoked by removing the device from the approved device list. This means even if you lose a device and another person had access to your PIN they would be unable to access Evisense on that device.

    Users can also be suspended from accessing Evisense on a particular device. This is an important feature if for example: a teacher leaves, is on long term sick leave or if account holders are using the system inappropriately in some way.
  • Device restriction – this means each device used by a member of staff must be approved before they can use Evisense on it.
  • Encryption – everything is encrypted: all communication with B Squared servers, where your data is stored, and all evidence on your device. B Squared staff are not able to access your data.
  • GDPR – Evisense is fully compliant with GDPR.
  • Multi-user PIN access – this means if more than one person is using a device each user of that particular device has their own unique PIN enabling them to access only their own evidence and posts.
  • Safeguarding leads – you can appoint users to the role of safeguarding leads. A safeguarding lead is notified when and why a post is reported. The safeguarding lead can make a decision about the post e.g. remove it permanently, edit it or reinstate it.

    Note: Once a post has been reported it is immediately removed.
  • Secure camera mode – this means photos and videos must be captured in the app. You cannot import evidence from your device’s Gallery. Any evidence you capture is safely locked and encrypted inside the app.
  • Self-auditing – Evisense system records all interactions within the system. This means there is a record of all logins, downloads and views providing a comprehensive audit trail.
  • Student is on protection list – in My B Squared (the Evisense admin hub) a student can be flagged as on a protection list. This means that if you tag multiple students in Evisense and one of those is flagged as protected, the Evisense system stops you from sharing evidence relating to that student.
