What is the Guardian Browser? 

The Guardian browser is a simple internet browser, like Chrome or Firefox. It is used for conducting proctored online assessments. 


The Guardian browser automatically clears its history when it is closed. This means any passwords or other information you enter in this browser will be deleted when you close the window. Don’t worry, once you’ve successfully completed your assessment session, your assessment responses will be transmitted to Testgrid for processing.
