Auto-stop your recording at a certain time

Screencastify has a built-in feature that can stop your recording after a certain amount of time has elapsed. Follow the steps below to enable auto-stop.


Auto-stop is particularly helpful if you (or your students) have a time limit for whatever you're presenting in your screencast.

  1. Start a recording (any recording - tab, desktop or webcam)
  2. Click the extension icon during your recording
  3. Select the amount of time you'd like Screencastify to record before automatically stopping


If you enable auto-stop, Screencastify will stop after the selected amount of time has elapsed from when your recording began, not from when you enabled auto-stop.
