Plagiarism Checker


I have checked my thesis for plagiarism in case of bad parapharasing. However, I am too scared that my work will be stored in somewhere and when my teachers check it, they will accuse me of cheating. Do grammmarly in any way store our work? Please help me, I am desperate. Thanks.

Tina, the participants here do not work for Grammarly.  For an answer from the company, you need to contact support.  There is a link below.  That said, I can tell you that I used a similar service when I was in grad school, and there was never such a problem.  It just wouldn't make sense for Grammarly to save a copy of your paper on their servers. It is now very common for instructors to require that students check their work on a plagiarism checker.  If these programs kept a copy of each submission, then every time a teacher checked a student's paper, it would show 100% plagiarized and the software would be worthless to the school.  Worthless software doesn't sell, and Grammarly is not a charity.  So, put your fears to rest.

Thanks a lot Patty! I feel a bit better now. I am hoping that I will not have any problems when I submit my thesis.

Benefits of Technology

Technology is the electric machines and systems that most people use daily. It has developed a lot during those years, and two important devices that most people use daily are the cellular and computer (Ihaboo). As we move into the 21st century, technology has become more and more important to our society. Computers are becoming more affordable and are depended upon by many people to aid them in their daily lives. Since computers are becoming more affordable to purchase, schools have been able to purchase more computers for their students. As more and more computers are purchased, growing need for technology education merges, What benefits do our students receive from technology? (Thea Theresa English, eHow Contributor). There are many ways that technology can benefit student. The strongest advantage that technology can bring us is the much easier communication, lifestyle and entertainment (Ihaboo).
Modern communication technologies such as mobile phones, e-mails and internet chat programs like the MSN Messenger have brought significant changes to our lives in recent years. Yet, there remains some disagreement as to whether the overall effect of this innovation gas been positive or negative. Although there are valid arguments to the contrary, it is my belief that the majority of people in the globe have benefited greatly from these powerful and effective means of modern communication. To begin with, mobile phones and other tools of modern communication facilitate not only contact with friends and relatives in faraway places but also global business. With the click of a button.
Although many people blame technology for destroying nature and causing pollution, and say that it is the worst evil in the world. I still believe that has greatly changed our lives for better as we hardly imagine what would happen if we went for a day without technology. Technology is very popular in our daily life thanks to its advantages. As we know, firstly, technology in house hold helps people do the housework. For example, housewives do not need to wash manually, but they can use washing machine.
One of the least important aspects of computers is that it provides entertainment and yet this is the sole reason why many people buy computers. The gaming and entertainment industry has become extremely large in the world. The products they sell range from shareware games to adult blood and gore. For instance the 3D-shootersereis, Quake, has sold millions of copies and essentially everyone in the world has seen it or played it. The entertainment industry not only provides gaming amusement but it also contributes learning programs, for children and adults, to help individuals excel in a certain trouble areas. Furthermore, computers are also capable of training military personal in a virtual reality environment.

Technology has become more and more important to human’s life. It impacts today’s world positively by two main ways. First, it makes life more convenient and easier. With the help of technology, many works for example household chores can be done without human. The first effect is communication. It is ironic that people do not have many chances for face to face interaction. Second is the lifestyle, many health problems are caused by the impact of technology. For instances, obesity risk is increasing among children according to children and technology. The third is the Entertainment. Since technology help people doing almost everything and provides wide range of entertainment, they become lazier and not likely to participate in outdoor activities.

My answer is based on my personal experience (I'm not a Grammarly employee) and what has been written elsewhere about the Grammarly service.


Grammarly does not keep a database of writings that have been submitted for grammar checking. Grammarly apparently uses only the publicly accessible internet for its plagarism check and does not check journals and academic publications that are behind pay-walls.


On the other hand, Turnitin -- a service used by most colleges and universities -- does keep a database of previously submitted paper. This is to defeat the traditional practice of frats/sororities to keep copies of past year term papers for resubmittal.
