Use the iPad Edition of LockDown Browser


If your instructor has allowed the exam to be taken on an iPad, you can use the steps below to use Respondus and take the quiz. 


  1. Download and install the "LockDown Browser" app from the Apple App Store to the iPad. (Requires iOS 11 or higher.)
  2. Start the LockDown Browser app.
  3. The first time the app is used, you will be prompted to select your institution and server. If you need to change the institution or server, select the settings icon on the toolbar for the LockDown Browser app.
  4. Once the setup is complete, you will be directed to your institution's logon page. Login with the correct credentials, navigate to your course and quiz, and begin your exam. 
  5. When you start a quiz that requires LockDown Browser, you should see the following message. You must click "Yes" in the "Confirm App Self-Lock" box to open the LockDown Browser app.
    1. If you do not see the above confirmation message, but see a message that says your instructor has not enabled the use of a tablet for your exam, you will need to use LockDown Browser on a Windows or Mac computer.
  6. Once you click "Yes" to confirm "app self-lock," you will see a message confirming that your iPad is now locked to LockDown Browser
  7. After you submit the exam, you'll see confirmation that your iPad is no longer locked to LockDown Browser.
  8. You can now either take another exam, or exit the LockDown Browser app.
