The recent release of Windows PCs/tablets with touch capability, enhanced display features and better battery life has enabled Windows 7/8/10 devices to be used as dedicated or public-use kiosks. But, if these devices are deployed in the unmonitored and unlocked state, they are prone to misuse, vulnerable to security threats and exposed to harmful settings changes by users. It is important to maintain the security of these kiosks and protect them from intentional or unintentional misuse by users.
A quick solution to make these Windows devices secure and efficient is by restricting users to only required device functions and activities.
SureLock for Windows transforms Windows-based PCs and tablets by turning them into secure kiosk systems. It allows the IT administrators to restrict the usage of these kiosks to only specified applications. With the latest update, 42Gears has made SureLock lockdown not only robust but also versatile with options to even restrict users to browsing of only specified websites or URLs.
To lock the device with only allowed applications and websites is very simple.
- Download and install SureLock for Windows from 42Gears website
- Access SureLock Admin Settings
- Specify allowed application(s) and website(s) for device users
- Change default password to the desired one
- Now, your device is all ready to be deployed
SureLock for Windows also supports deployment-friendly features like the ability to export and import settings to a file or to cloud for easy configuration of multiple devices at once. Read more here.
