Can I use my iPad or tablet to take the bar exam?
No. Bar Exams are NOT currently supported on iPad or tablets that run on alternate versions of Windows 10 or 11, such as Windows RT and Windows 10 S, or other tablets.
How should I set my device’s screen scaling?
If you see a message about Screen Resolution when launching Examplify, visit one of the following links to properly set your display resolution. You must set ‘Scaling’ to 100% in order for exam content to display properly. You must do this prior to starting an exam as you will be unable to adjust scaling once the exam begins. Note: If you need to increase text size once in the application, instead of scaling, we recommend reviewing this article: Examplify: Exam-Taking Features and Options
If you use scaling at any rate other than 100%, you may experience issues once in Examplify with improper word wrapping on your device.
Do I need to disable my antivirus software to download Examplify?
Examplify is a desktop application used by over a million exam-takers annually around the world, with updates released at different times throughout the year. Globally, there are hundreds of different anti-virus solutions, each of which releases frequent updates. In this evolving, dynamic environment, there is always a risk that a specific anti-virus software could prevent Examplify from successfully operating as needed to deliver a secure exam.
To secure the device, Examplify closes most external applications when beginning a secure exam. In order to provide a stable and secure user experience, the following commonly used anti-virus applications have been confirmed to have no known conflicts with Examplify and are thus excluded from being automatically shut down at exam start.
- Ad-Aware anti-virus
- AVG anti-virus
- AVG Watch Dog anti-virus
- Avira anti-virus
- BitDefender anti-virus
- ESET anti-virus
- Kaspersky anti-virus
- McAfee anti-virus
- Microsoft Anti-Malware Service
- Microsoft Defender anti-virus
- Microsoft Security Essentials
- Norton anti-virus
- Norton 360
- Panda anti-virus
- Quick Heal anti-virus
- WebRoot anti-virus
At this time, these vendors’ product implementations cause no known issues with Examplify operations. But as these vendors are constantly updating their software, there is always a risk that an update could prevent Examplify from working effectively.
For this reason, we recommend that you disable your anti-virus prior to starting a secure exam and turn it back on once the exam is completed. If you are uncomfortable shutting off anti-virus and are using one of the anti-virus solutions listed above, please complete your mock exam with the anti-virus software enabled to verify that there are no conflicts between Examplify and the anti-virus software.
Any anti-virus applications not listed above will be automatically disabled when a secure exam begins. If you are using an anti-virus application not included in the above list, ExamSoft recommends restarting anti-virus upon exam completion, and/or migrating to one of the anti-virus solutions listed above.
When Examplify secures my device, does it have access to other private or personal information on my computer?
No. ExamSoft engaged an independent, third-party nationally recognized digital forensics expert firm, Stroz Friedberg LLC, to review the Examplify product and ExamSoft’s data-collection practices in Fall 2020. Knowing that ExamSoft does not sell users’ personal information, and does not share users’ personal information, other than with service providers that are necessary for delivering exams, Stroz Friedberg, LLC confirmed the following facts:
- Information sent to ExamSoft or by the Examplify software is encrypted when users register, when Examplify sends any information [to] the ExamSoft servers, and when exam-monitoring data is uploaded. Of course, Examplify users cannot access other users’ data stored on those servers.
- ExamSoft does not receive or have access to any user payment information.
- Examplify only accesses exam-takers’ information when it is necessary to administer an exam:
- Examplify does not access credentials stored in Google Chrome.
- Examplify makes only temporary changes to certain files and settings on examinees’ computers to administer exams, monitor examinees, and prevent integrity breaches; those changes do not result in Examplify collecting any user information.
- Examplify only accesses files on a user’s computer that are relevant to the software’s function; it does not, and does not need to, access any user-created directories (such as a photos folder) that might contain users’ personal information.
- Examplify only records examinees’ activity in that application, and it only does so during the exam, when examinees are aware of the proctoring.
- Examplify only monitors for specific keystrokes—such as hotkeys or certain shortcuts—to prevent cheating.
- The data that users upload at the end of an exam does not include any of the user’s personal information that is unrelated to the exam.
