What is Kiosk Mode?

Kiosk Mode is a special restricted mode in which users are allowed to access only certain approved applications or access only certain approved websites. Goal of setting up kiosk mode is to prevent device misuse. Kiosk mode can be set up on computers, mobile devices or tablets. Once kiosk mode is configured with a kiosk software, the users are unable to perform any unintended actions which can potentially impact the desired functioning of the kiosk device.

With kiosk lockdown software, it is easy to set and enforce clear expectations for your customers. Any attempt by users to access unapproved apps or web pages on a kiosk device is immediately blocked. You can also enhance branding by using your corporate logo and color theme as custom wallpaper.
