  • December 12, 2018 – New Secure Browser for MacOS (Action required)

    AIR found a security issue during the testing of the latest version of MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) and MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra). Everyone running on MacOS must update to the new Secure Browser 10.6 to resolve this issue. This new browser will work on all versions of MacOS that are currently supported (10.9+) and will be available for download on Wednesday, December 12.

    As of December 31, 2018, the 2017-18 AIR Secure Browser will no longer be supported for state assessments. Technology Coordinators will need to ensure that the Secure Browsers are updated to the new 2018-19 version, which can be downloaded at https://vide.portal.airast.org/secure-browsers.stml.
