    Counterfeiting can be characterized from various perspectives, yet however you decide to characterize it, you will in any case concoct something very similar relying upon the setting wherein you are in.

    Hi, this plugin is really nice.
    Can you tell me what is the difference of manual checking (YES or NO) compared to automatic checking (YES or NO), isn't it the same thing?

    We are sorry for a delay in answering your question, Bruno
    The option “Autocheck” allows automatic check of a document right after it is uploaded by a student.
    The option “Manual Checking” allows a student to upload a document and submit it for plagiarism check after pressing “Check Your Text” button.
    You may check the detailed explanation of the plugin options in our integration guide.
