(Note: To avoid seeing your users’ personal data, make sure to use Hawk’s Data Masking feature.)

Live Stream

If the visitor is currently interacting with your site, you’ll be able to turn on Hawk’s Live Stream feature. Just click the play button! Hawk will display everything the visitor is doing in real time, including mouse movements, scrolling, page navigation and clicks.

  • To stop the live stream, hover over the video player and click the pause button that appears.
  • The video player shows the visitor’s past mouse location on screen as a trail. Use the Show cursor trail checkbox to turn this feature on and off.
  • Refresh visitor’s browser: Clicking the Refresh visitor’s browser… link causes a page refresh for the visitor. This will be visible to them! If they have entered information into a form, they will lose it! If the Live Stream appears garbled or incorrect, a page refresh may be the solution.
  • Note: Viewing the Live Stream uses up your credits. (For more information, see here.)
Page Views

The Page Views section gives an overview of the pages this visitor has been interacting with. See the Visitor History section below for more detail.
