Wireless Public AlertsSolved

It would be nice to have a policy that can BLOCK Wireless Public Alerts (Amber alerts, weather watch alerts, etc) for devices in KIOSK mode.

These alerts can be deactivated manually on Android devices and it would help to have such a feature when deploying remotely.

Hi Thiago,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Such alerts on the device are through the System UI package, as they are OS prompts.

These can be blocked, by disabling the app crashing report from the Kiosk mode’s peripheral settings:
