we have developed a web app for our clients that runs in the browser
we would like to run the web app in full kiosk mode on startup of Android tablets and lock the web page. and if the tablet has not battery anymore and the tablet starts-up again we want our web app to be displayed and locked fully again on the tablet.
is that possible?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Yes, it is possible. You can add the Web app into the Hexnode app inventory and then configure the Android single app kiosk policy with the desired web app.
    Please follow the be below steps for creating the web app:

    1. Navigate to Apps and click on ‘+Add Apps’.
    2. Select the Web App from the drop-down list. In the Window that appears, give the name, URL, app icon and the category of the app.
    3. Click Add and the web app will now be added to the list.

    The app should now be added to the Android Kiosk Policy.

    1. Go to Policies, you can create a new policy or edit an already existing one.
    2. Navigate to Kiosk Lockdown-> Android Kiosk Lockdown-> Single App and add the created web app.
    3. Associate targets and save the policy.

    The device should now be locked to a single app kiosk with the desired web app.
