How to add enterprise app as Kiosk using MDM

With Hexnode MDM you can add enterprise apps to Kiosk mode and not just store apps or web apps. Companies may require Kiosk devices to run on their own apps alone. This can be achieved very easily with Hexnode MDM.

To add an enterprise app to Kiosk mode, first, you need to add the enterprise app to the Apps list. Once you have an enterprise app in your collection of apps, you just need to add the app to the Kiosk mode.

For iOS

  1. Go to Policies and select New Policy or select an existing policy.
  2. Select iOS Settings and click on Kiosk Mode.
  3. Click on Configure.
  4. Select the enterprise app you want to set as Kiosk. The App name and App Identifier gets added automatically.
  5. Go to Policy Targets and select the devices you want to convert to Kiosk.
  6. Click Save.

For Android

  1. Go to Policies and select New Policy or select an existing policy.
  2. Select Android Settings and click on Kiosk Mode.
  3. Click on Configure.
  4. Type the name of the enterprise app you want to add to the Kiosk mode.
  5. Go to Policy Targets and select the devices you want to convert to Kiosk.
  6. Click Save.

Note:You can give a Kiosk local password here or not. If you give a password here, this local password will be required to exit a device from Kiosk by double tapping the back button. If however, you do not set a local password, the global password you set up in the MDM settings on Admin page will be required to exit the Kiosk.
