Student: What is Respondus LockDown Browser?
LockDown Browser is a custom browser for taking quizzes in Canvas. It prevents you from printing, copying, going to another web site, or accessing other applications during a test. If a Canvas quiz requires that LockDown Browser be used, you will not be able to take the quiz with a standard web browser.
LockDown Browser needs to only be used for taking Canvas Quizzes. You do not need to use it to do all of your coursework.
It is recommend that you install LockDown Browser before taking your first quiz or exam, in case there are any technical difficulties. Technical support may not be available if you wait until the last minute to install.
