How can I make my quizzes secure and private?

You have a lot of options to  prevent cheating in online assessments and to ensure they are accessed by authorized users only. Access control options include: 


1. Make your quiz link private:




2. Add password protection:




3. Grant access only to approved users:




These options are explained in detail below:


1. Make your quiz link private

You can make a quiz private. When enabled, it prevents your quiz from getting listed on search engines or in public sections of ProProfs. Private quizzes are only visible to those whom you share the URL of the quiz with.


2. Add password protection to your quiz

For additional protection, you can also password protect your quiz. This ensures that, only those who know the password can access your quiz. You can change this password at any time. 


3. Grant access only to approved users

Assigning usernames and passwords make your quizzes more secure and also help to prevent cheating in online tests. In this method, you add a list of users via the classroom and selectively allow each user or group of users access to the quiz. You can change a user's permissions or reset their password at any point. 


Each user has a unique username & password that is known just to them. Please note that these users need not register on ProProfs (you can add them directly from your dashboard), however, if you do want to integrate with your existing user authentication system, we have Single Sign On support as well. 


4. Make your quizzes secure to prevent cheating

You can prevent cheating in online tests by making your quizzes secure using a number of different methods such as question banks, quiz time limit, quiz availability setting, randomization, etc.


5. Make your quiz available only within certain IP ranges

You can set IP ranges in your quiz settings, to make the quiz available only within the IP ranges that you have added. This prevents spam as well as cheating in online tests as only those learners, connected to the Internet within your selected IP ranges, can take the quiz.
