Respondus LockDown Browser is a secure browser for taking exams in Canvas. It prevents you from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If a Canvas exam requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, the exam won’t be accessible with a standard web browser.
Respondus LockDown Browser is NOT intended to replace the browser used by faculty or students within Canvas. LockDown Browser is only intended for use by students taking assessments that have been set up to use LockDown Browser.
