Preventing opening the new tab during research


I am conducting a study on detecting fake news. I want the participants not to be able to open a new tab in the browser they are using while filling out the study (so that they cannot search for news in search engines) Is something like this possible? Can I prevent participants from opening a new tab in their browsers while completing my research? Thanks.

    It is possible through JScript to detect respondents who are changing tab/window. They would be warned that if the change tab/window their answer would be invalidated.

    However, this would not solve your issue, as they could use another device to perform the searches.

    The only possible workaround that I see now is to put a strict time constraint on respondents, as to not give them enough time to perform searches.
