New Secure Browser for macOS 10.13 and 10.14

Dear District Testing Coordinators & District Technology Coordinators:

This message pertains only to districts and schools using devices with macOS 10.13 and 10.14 to administer online tests; all others may disregard this message.

AIR has completed the review of macOS 10.14 and determined a new secure browser is required to support this new operating system. Additionally, a security issue has been discovered for macOS 10.13.

To allow support of 10.14 and to resolve the security issue in 10.13, Mac Secure Browser 10.6 will be available beginning on Monday, November 26. Devices running macOS 10.9 to 10.12 may continue to use the current Mac Secure Browser 10.3.

Beginning on Monday, December 3, Mac Secure Browser 10.6 will be required for devices running macOS 10.13 and 10.14 to access the secure student testing site.

If you have any questions about this information or need assistance with installing the secure browser, contact the Ohio Help Desk at 877.231.7809 or ohhelpdesk@air.org.
