    Before anyone use it, I’d give a warning: Plagtracker, and any similar websites, are storing informations of submitted papers. Therefore, when you’re using it, whatever you check will be in their database. This creates all sort of problem later. Some students in our online course check their peers’ essay with this, and without necessary knowledge to interpret the results, accusing each other for plagiarism, while in fact it might be because the writers were using the service to check their essays before submission. So they were accused of plagiarizing their own selves! Or false positives that occur when the writers post their essays on their blogs. They were accused of plagiarizing their own blogs. Great. Several other students also think this is a privacy violation because they don’t ask for the writers’ consent to store their essays. You can also fool these online plagiarism checker by shuffling words around, using thesaurus to change synonyms, resulting in unreadable, nonsensical passages that will pass as ‘original work’.
