What does Kiosk mode mean?

Kiosk mode is a state where the device is configured to work in a restricted, purpose-specific environment, limiting the users’ access to only the essential applications or services.

Locking down a device into Kiosk mode prevents access to unnecessary features and applications and strips down the device’s functionality to the bare minimum required to perform a specified task. This prevents the user from being side-tracked by potential distractions. When a device is in Kiosk mode, you restrict the user from tampering with any device settings.

Potential devices can be locked down into Kiosk Mode by either a dedicated Kiosk Software or a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. Choosing an MDM solution for your enterprise equips your Kiosk strategies with added benefits.

For instance, rather than manually installing kiosk software and enabling kiosk mode on your devices, you can set up your devices with ease and push these actions in bulk from a remote centralized console.

With an MDM solution, you can host a variety of Kiosk Lockdown strategies on your devices, including:

  • Single App Kiosk
  • Multi App Kiosk
  • Browser Lockdown
  • Digital Signage Display

You are also equipped with the ability to customize Application and Peripheral settings for your Kiosk strategies. Getting your devices out of Kiosk mode also becomes an easy and manageable task.

Adopting an MDM solution to set up Kiosk policies streamlines the entire process of Kiosk Lockdown and delivers a simple and achievable result even for novice technicians.
