What is a SEB file?

A SEB file is a configuration file used by Safe Exam Browser (SEB), a secure online assessment application. It defines an exam's settings, including how an exam taker can use their computer during the exam. SEB files are encrypted, so exam takers cannot modify them.

More Information

Safe Exam Browser is an app that allows businesses and other organizations to provide online assessments to users. While a user is taking an exam via Safe Exam Browser, the app typically limits the capabilities of that user's computer, to prevent them from cheating on the exam. For example, Safe Exam Browser may show an exam in its own web browser window and prevent a user from opening other browser windows during the exam.

Each Safe Exam Browser exam is associated with a SEB file, which defines that exam's settings. Test takers can double-click a SEB file to begin the associated exam (provided they have Safe Exam Browser installed).

How to open a SEB file

To open a SEB file, install Safe Exam Browser and then double-click your SEB file. When you do, Safe Exam Browser will open, load the settings your SEB file contains, and give you the option of starting your exam.
