Easy way to configure kiosk policy for different devices

expand collapsive

We have deployed android devices to our employees for work. Each department in the company requires a unique set of play store apps. The apps have already been installed on the devices. To reduce distractions, we now need to restrict all other device functions and lockdown the devices to these apps only. Creating different kiosk policies for different departments is a tedious task. Any easy way to achieve this?

  • Hi @aziel,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    You don’t need to configure different kiosk policies for different departments because Android devices in kiosk mode will display the Google Play Store apps only if they are already installed on the devices. Hence, please ensure that you have installed all the required store apps on the devices before applying the kiosk policy. However, if a kiosk policy configured with enterprise apps is associated with the devices, the apps will get automatically installed even if they aren’t already present on the devices.

    Thus, you can configure a kiosk policy by adding all the required Play Store apps and then associating it with all the devices in your organization. That way, only the apps required for each department will be displayed on the respective devices.

    Follow the steps below to lock down devices with the required set of apps.

    1. Head on to Policies > Kiosk Lockdown > Android Kiosk Lockdown > Multi App, and add all the Play Store apps required for every department.
    2. Go to Policy Targets and select all your devices in each department. Then, click Save to associate the policy with the devices.

    Hope this answers your query.
