Kiosk Mode on Android with SureLock

Okt 26, 2011 | 42Gears Team

SureLock locks down Android based tablets and smartphones to prevent unwanted device misuse. You can control which applications and device features can be used by the end-user. This is also known as Android Kiosk Mode. For example, you can block access to games such as Angry Bird, social media apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, general web browsers, etc. In most cases, you may allow access to just one or two apps, and SureLock will ensure that the user cannot access anything other than those allowed applications.

Trial version of SureLock for Android is available on our website as well as on Google Play.
