A seamless internet connection is essential to have a smooth interview experience with HackerRank. We advise both the candidates and interviewers to check their internet connection before the start of the interview. While inside the interview, as well, you will be able to see your network strength and we will also notify you in case of a weak connection.
You will be able to see your network strength, both in the lobby as well as inside the interview.
This is how you can monitor the network strength of available participants in the interview from the lobby.
Inside the Interview
The network signal of the interviewers and interviewee can be viewed inside the interview as well, as shown in the below image.
When the internet connection is unstable for any of the participants in the interview, they get a notification of the same on their screen, as shown below.
Loss of Signal
If any of the participants in the interview loses their internet while the interview is still on they get a message, as below, on their screen.
Note: These notifications are only visible to the person who is facing the problem with their internet connection, while the others in the interview can monitor each other's network strength via signal bars on the top right corner.
