Android kiosk settingsSolved

4 years ago

We are using android devices (tablet) in kiosk mode for our enterprise app. We are not allowing clients to use the tablets only our application. However, from time to time our clients wish to change their location and connect to new Wi-Fi networks or use Data SIM cards to connect to internet. We wish to give them option to perform these changes in settings (Wi-Fi settings and mobile data settings). Can we use multiple app kiosk and give them option to go to ONLY these settings of the device? Is there a shortcut to these settings without seeing other settings?

Hey, Thanks for reaching out.

Yes, this is possible. Please navigate to Kiosk Lockdown > Android Kiosk Lockdown > Peripheral Settings > Network. Enable these options:
Users can turn Wi-Fi on/off: Enables the user to turn Wi-Fi On/Off on the device.
Connect to and switch between Wi-Fi networks: Allow the users to connect to different Wi-Fi networks.
Users can turn mobile data on/off: Allow user to turn the mobile data on/off.
Also, navigate to Peripheral settings –> Other options and enable the ‘Show floating icon for peripheral settings’ option. This will enable you to click on the floating icon that appear on the screen and make changes.

Kindly use the help link to find more info on peripheral settings.
