Lockdown Browser

Lockdown browser is an advanced technology that locks down test-takers’ testing environment and restricts on-screen cheating during an online exam. Browsing, impromptu searching or accessing toolbars and UI controls – everything is barred for securing the exam-taking process. A test-taker can only move out of the lockdown browser once the test is completed and submitted.

Lockdown Browser is a customized browser setting that prevents any form of digital or on-screen cheating during an online exam. A lockdown browser runs full screen on the system. Hence, a student cannot move out of the window or access any unauthorized application without permission. A lockdown browser also prevents keyboard functions and shortcuts, removes browsing and toolbar options and disables external ports to ensure a safe online exam environment.
