    Hey Adrian! You can go through this topic to get a clearer idea of Kiosk mode and how it can be easily set up using Hexnode MDM.

    Newbie here!
    I was testing out this kiosk feature in a few devices. All my devices (android devices all above version 8) are showing just the home screen. No apps

    kiosk

    The device is not stuck, I am able to exit the kiosk

    Hello Yuudai,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    This happens when the apps added in the kiosk are not installed on the device or if the apps have been blacklisted.

    Make sure that the apps added in the kiosk are present on the device. Blacklisting apps in devices enrolled in Android Enterprise will hide them from the device. Check if you have unknowingly configured a policy blacklisting all the apps. If so, remove the policy from the device or remove the apps added in kiosk from the list of blacklisted apps. Check out our help doc to know how to remove/delete/archive a policy.

    Cheers!!
