How to setup automatic scheduled reboot of Android devices with SureLock?

When your Android device is in lockdown mode with access to only allowed applications and no access to device settings, it is quite possible that after certain period of time with extensive usage, the device may show signs of not operating upto its potential level. Device could become slow, Wi-Fi function may get patchy or worse, high battery drainage and so on.

There could be many such common issues which can be fixed by a simple reboot. A reboot could clear cache to counter the slow processing, close services/applications running in the background that might be eating away the battery life or restore lost WiFi connection. However, if you are using Mobile Device Management solutions like SureMDM to monitor and push jobs to your devices, sometimes they need a reboot for the changed settings to come into effect.

Now, SureLock allows you to schedule a reboot of your Samsung KNOX enabled or rooted device. You can simply create a reboot plan for a specific day and time for your kiosks/field devices/or any Android devices with SureLock.

To enable this feature, follow the steps mentioned below:

1. Access SureLock Admin Settings by tapping on the screen five times within three seconds and entering SureLock Password


2. On Admin Settings screen, tap on SureLock Settings


3. On SureLock Settings screen, tap on Schedule Reboot


4. On Schedule Reboot Settings screen, tap on Enable Scheduled Reboot


5. Tap on Change Schedule Reboot Time, to specify a time for the reboot


6. Once done, select the days using listed options under Select Days section



7. Tap on Done to complete

Now, your device will automatically reboot on the set time and day without losing the lockdown.
