Key Features of Kiosk Software


Single or Multi-App Lockdown
Restrict user access to only pre-approved applications or a pre-approved set of applications. Once kiosk mode is enabled, the device will be locked into single or multiple applications allowed by the IT admin, while all other applications (such as distracting games and social media) will be blocked. Thus, SureLock works as a kiosk mode solution to prevent field workers from getting distracted in the field by non-work applications such as entertainment and gaming apps.


Peripheral Control
Prevent device misuse or restrict users from tampering with device settings by blocking access to peripherals. For instance, IT admins can disable the factory reset, camera, and screenshot buttons on field worker devices. This means that the device settings will be locked down by SureLock, and the workforce will not be able to use unapproved apps or change settings.

Devices and Apps Security
Prevent unauthorized access to devices and applications by enforcing password policies. Use SureLock to lock apps with password policies and control access for multiple users. For example, IT admins can lock a single app for a particular user in a device that has multiple apps. This multi-user access control feature in SureLock prevents workers from having unwanted access to various applications.


App Analytics
Analyze usage statistics, such as which applications are used the most by your workforce. Leverage SureLock’s analytics feature to get insights into each user’s application use, and the duration for which each application was used. Use the Export Analytics Data feature to export the analytics data in a CSV (comma-separated value) file at any time.


Remote Management with SureMDM
Remotely configure SureLock settings from SureMDM without any user input required or allowed. Configure essential kiosk solution settings such as Wi-Fi, multi-user profiles, notifications, and more. Use the screen-sharing feature to troubleshoot device issues and track the location of the devices in real-time.


Home Screen Branding
Use kiosk lockdown software to customize the layout of the device home screen and lock screen of devices with a business logo. Modify wallpapers to ensure a unified brand message across all devices. Improve the customer experience and reinforce brand identity.
