Respondus LockDown Browser
Respondus LockDown BrowserTM is a secure browser for taking exams in Blackboard. It prevents you
from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If a
Blackboard exam requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, the exam won't be accessible
with a standard web browser.
Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking examinations in Blackboard. It should not
be used in other areas of Blackboard.
Respondus LockDown Browser provides a custom interface for the Internet Explorer (Windows) or Safari
(Macintosh) software that is already installed on the computer. It does not modify an existing copy of
Internet Explorer or Safari, but rather, installs a separate program that will display a custom browser when
it is started. Respondus LockDown Browser uses the same security features and service packs that are
currently installed for Internet Explorer or Safari. Installing Respondus LockDown Browser won't modify
your current version of Internet Explorer or Safari in any way.
