Things happen--babies cry, doorbells ring, chaos erupts in your otherwise blissful household: sometimes you have to quit in the middle of your test.

While we would rather that you finish the test to be sure you get paid for your time and effort, we understand that sometimes you just can't.   

**Please know that once you terminate an unmoderated test session, there is not a way to restart it, and this will also not result in payment for you.**

On desktop:

To quit, you'll simply "x" out of the Google Chrome tab that has the Validately recorder.  You will also need to click on the Validately recorder icon (little red button shows that it's recording), and it will ask if you'd like to stop.  These steps will stop the session, disconnect the screen recording, and terminate the testing.

On mobile:

You can force quit the app, which will disconnect you from the recording and will terminate the testing.
