  • Please delay updating your Chrome Operating Systems to Chromev72 for student testing using the American Institutes for Research (AIR) secure browser.  If students use the AIR Secure Browser on Chrome v72 OS, they will see an error (Login.Shell.Alert.Login.Error) which prevents them from testing.  AIR is working with Google to resolve this issue. Chrome v67-71 is currently supported.

  • 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 address these issues, AIR has created and posted a newly updated version of the secure browser for macOS which is available for download on the Secure Browsers page. Previous versions of the secure browser for macOS will no longer function after December 31, 2018. All macOS devices (10.9 to 10.14)  are required to have the new secure browser installed by the end of the year in order to test in the new year.
