Respondus LockDown Browser - Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a customized browser that increases the security of test delivery in Canvas. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser to access an exam, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications.

Students are then guided through a pre-exam sequence, including a webcam check.
