Respondus Lockdown Browser
Respondus Lockdown Browser prevents a user from printing, copying, going to another
URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If an online exam or assessment
requires that Respondus Lockdown Browser be used, the exam won't be accessible with
a standard web browser.
Respondus Lockdown Browser provides a custom interface for the Internet Explorer (Windows)
or Safari (Macintosh) software that is already installed on a computer. It does not
modify an existing copy of Internet Explorer or Safari, but rather, install separate
program that displays a custom interface and set of features. 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.
(Note: Respondus Lockdown Browser should only be used for taking online exams and assessments. It shouldn't be used to access other areas of a learning system).
Respondus Lockdown Browser is installed on all computers in the UC student computer lab as well as in the library. You can also install the Lockdown Browser on your personal computer.
