Getting Started with a Free Trial

To get started with a 2-month free trial, submit the LockDown Browser License Agreement (see links above). Once we receive the agreement, a welcome email is sent to the administrator and support contacts listed on the agreement.

Free trial participation is only available at the "institution" level (i.e. only one administrative contact per institution). We recommend that the administrative contact be the LMS administrator on campus.
