What is LockDown Browser?

LockDown Browser is a testing software designed to create a virtual testing environment. Professors can set up the exams to record you while taking the test while only allowing you to stay on the testing page (no surfing the web to find answers). 

How Do I Get LockDown Browser on my Chromebook?

Many professors provide a link on how to download the LockDown Browser software via Canvas. This allows students to get the software downloaded on the personal laptops at any time. Chromebooks already have LockDown Browser installed! You do not need to worry about downloading LockDown Browser on the Chromebook.

How Do I Launch My Test In LockDown Browser?

You should be able to launch your quiz directly from Canvas on Google Chrome! More documentation on how to do this may be found here.


If you have a problem with LockDown Browser after following these steps, contact [email protected] or the UCCS IT Help Desk.
