Respondus Lockdown Browser is a secure browser for taking tests in Canvas. It prevents you from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during a test. If a Canvas test requires that Respondus Lockdown Browser be used, you will not be able to take the test with a standard web browser. Respondus Lockdown Browser should only be used for taking Canvas tests.

The use of Chromebooks with the Respondus Lockdown Browser is being researched. Chromebooks have limitations, and we typically have not recommended their use. Check back for updates.
