Safe Exam Browser (SEB)

What is Safe Exam Browser?

  • As a student you may have to take an exam in the so called Safe Exam browser – usually on your own computer. Safe Exam Browsers are also called lock-down browsers.
  • The use of Safe Exam Browser makes it possible to do an exam via a “restricted” browser, where you will not be able to access web-recourses or local files on your computer during the exam.
  • Before accessing the exam, you will be prompted to download a program and install it on your machine. There are versions for Windows and Mac operating systems and you need to know the version of your operating system.
  • After the installation – which will only take a few minutes – click start to begin the exam. This will close all other programs and will star the Safe Exam Browser.
  • After finishing the exam, you will receive a receipt I Digital Exam and on your student mail.
  • Close the Exam Safe browser by pressing the close button.
