Note: Users running Mac OS 10.14 and Secure Testing Browser version 4.0.0.3 or 4.0.0.4 should disable the screen saver on their devices prior to testing. Otherwise, if the screen saver comes on while the Secure Testing Browser is open, the computer will freeze up and will need to be restarted in order to be used. To prevent this issue, either disable the Mac screen saver in system preferences or ensure students close the Secure Testing Browser after they finish their tests.
