Hi  @acostamm , I haven't tried this myself yet, but have been looking into it a bit since we may be testing from mobile devices this spring.  I get the impression from the following site, that there is a specific iOS app for Lockdown Browser. 

 ‌Can an iPad be used with LockDown Browser? (instructions for faculty) - Powered by Kayako Help Desk ... 

A discussion by  @shouts ‌ a couple of years ago indicated that there may be a few problems students run into, but these may have been ironed out.  Perhaps if Sarah reads this post she can update us on how things are going now.

Hi  @acostamm ‌ - 

I echo what ericwerth‌ said above. There is no support for lockdown browser in the native Canvas app or mobile web. Outside of requiring students to use a traditional browser on a desktop/laptop, I suggest you explore the LockDown Browser app. 

Let us know what you find out, so we can help others. Thanks!

Hi  @macosta10 ‌

We are a lockdown browser school, and it does currently support the IOS iPads with an app from iTunes. See screenshot below......

I hope this helps,

Thanks  @kmeeusen ‌! 

If anyone tries this out, I’m curious to see what comes of it. We aren’t a Lockdown Browser school outside of a few testing labs, so I have no means to test it myself.
