LockDown Browser/Monitor

Respondus LockDown Browser is a "client" application that is installed to local computers.

The LockDown Browser software has been installed in most FAU instructional and open labs.  Students wishing to take an assessment requiring LockDown Browser from their own computer must first install the software:
