  • How to install Respondus Lockdown Browser using a Windows computer
  • How to install Respondus Lockdown Browser using a Mac computer
  • Chromebook users -  Students using a Chromebook will need to use the regular LockDown Browser installation link above (you will NOT be able to search for the app directly from the Chrome web store).  The LockDown Browser installation link will direct the student to the Chrome web store, at which point they should select “Add to Chrome” to install the LockDown Browser Extension. If the instructor allows an exam to use the Chromebook version of LockDown Browser, it will automatically launch LockDown Browser at the appropriate time.
The directions for using Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor.

In Ultra, students will:

    • Login to MyBC3 NOT the LockDown Browser
    • Open the course and click the Test link.
    • Respondus LockDown Browser (and Monitor) launch from within the course. (Students can also download and install from inside the test.)
    • Also check for updates - so you are using the most current version of the software to avoid problems when taking a test.   Click here for more information on how to update the Lockdown Browser.

Respondus Student Support

  • 24/7/365 Live Chat
    If a student encounters a problem with Respondus Monitor, a Respondus support agent is seconds away. Students can start a live chat session from within Respondus Monitor itself. The average wait time for an agent (a real human) is less than 30 seconds.
  • Help Center & System Check
    In addition to live chat, Respondus Monitor has a built-in Help Center that contains a system check, troubleshooter, and knowledge base.
  • Respondus Support
    Sure, students can contact the Respondus Support team too.
  • FYI:  Support contact for LockDown Browser, we want to let you know that support for Windows 7 ended on June 28, 2023.   

    Students using Windows 7 will need to upgrade to Windows 10/11 or find another device that is supported. LockDown Browser can be used with Windows 10+, Mac 10.13+, Chromebook, and iPads running iOS 11+ (the iPad setting must be enabled by the instructor).

At this time, we only support Mac, Windows, and iPad operating systems. Examplify will not run on Chromebook, Android, or Linux operating systems.  Examplify can be used on virtually any modern computer (i.e. purchased within the last 3-4 years). (updated info 4/16/24)

 Verify that your device meets the minimum requirements:

  1. Check your device information:
  2. See if Examplify is supported on your device: Examplify Minimum System Requirements

    Note: Examplify performs certain checks when you start Examplify and when you attempt to download an exam. If you see messages about Minimum System Requirements, review the on-screen information. Depending on the issues, you might be able to Continue with the exam (although device updates are recommended), or you might see only the Return to Dashboard option (meaning that you cannot use this device without updating it to meet the requirements). For more information, see: Examplify: Update Your Device to Meet Minimum System Requirements
