LockDown Browser Froze While Taking an Exam


Try the following:

  1. Use a supported browser to navigate to the exam and LockDown Browser will launch automatically when it is required.
  2. Avoid using wireless connections when taking tests if possible. Wireless dropout can cause issues with exams and prevent you from completing them. If you are on a wired connection and LockDown Browser freezes, try the following steps:
    • Restart your device.
    • Restart the exam and enter LockDown browser. As long as the time limit for the exam has not expired you should be able to continue from where you left off.
  3. Try a different computer.

If you are still unable to resume your exam contact the Service Desk.
