LockDown Browser® is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within a learning management system, such as Canvas and Schoology. Used at over 1500 educational institutions, LockDown Browser is the top choice of educators for securing online exams in classrooms or proctored environments.

Locks down student computers to prevent cheating during exams

LockDown Browser’s name says it all: it "locks down" the browser on a student's computer or tablet. Students are unable to copy, print, access other applications, or visit other websites during an online exam. LockDown Browser also blocks hundreds of common and advanced methods of cheating, such as the use of Virtual Machines, remote desktops, screensharing, instant messaging, screen recording, keystroke combinations, launching applications with timers/alerts, and much more.
