Does the LockDown Browser 2.0 Student-Edition for Mac support silent or unattended installs?
Posted by Respondus Support

Once LockDown Browser 2.0 Student Edition for Mac has been installed on one Mac computer, the app can be copied or pushed to other Macs across a network, or deployed with desktop management systems such as Apple Remote Desktop, JAMF Casper Suite, Cisco Meraki, Filewave, LanDesk, etc.

The recommended steps are:

1. Download the LockDown Browser 2.0 Student Edition for Mac installer, "Install Respondus LockDown Browser xxxxxxxxx.pkg" from the institution's unique download link, "" (The institution's unique link will be listed in the Respondus Administrator Area)

2. Install LockDown Browser-Mac on at least one Mac.

3. Start LockDown Browser-Mac and then close the browser, to verify the installation.

4. Copy the LockDown Browser app in Finder->Applications to other Macs in your network, placing the app in the Finder->Applications folder on those computers.

Note: Do not use desktop management systems to run the LockDown Browser installer.  Instead, install LockDown Browser-Mac at least one time then copy/push/deploy the installed LockDown Browser app to other Macs.
