LockDown Browser

The LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in Canvas. When students use LockDown Browser to access a Canvas Quiz, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, access other applications, or close a quiz until it is submitted for grading. Quizzes created for use with the LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with standard browsers. LockDown Browser works much like a standard browser, but some options have been removed or work differently. The list below highlights some of these differences.
