How to enable Android Kiosk Wi-Fi settings with MDM

Hexnode MDM provides the user with options to control the Wi-Fi in their devices. This will relieve the admin from configuring different Wi-Fi policies for Android devices. Also, this option makes the kiosk mode more flexible.

The Wi-Fi controls available in Hexnode MDM are:

  • Enable users to turn Wi-Fi on and off
  • Enable users to connect and switch between available networks.
  • Enables users to add hidden networks.
  • Enables users to delete the configured networks.

Applying Wi-Fi settings

  1. Login to your Hexnode portal.
  2. Navigate to Policies.
  3. Select an existing policy or create a new one by clicking New Policy.
  4. Select Peripheral Settings from Kiosk Lockdown > Android Kiosk Lockdown and click Configure.

For enabling the users to turn the Wi-Fi on and off:

  1. Select the option Users can turn Wi-Fi on/off.
  2. Click Save.

Here the user will be able to see the network they are connected to and they will be able to turn it on and off.

For enabling the users to connect and switch between available Wi-Fi networks:

  1. Select the option Connect to and switch between Wi-Fi Networks.

Disallow Wi-Fi controls to user

There are two ways to configure a Wi-Fi network in a kiosk device

  1. By associating a Wi-Fi network policy
  2. By allowing the Wi-Fi controls to the user

If you want to strip the user from any type of Wi-Fi control, you just need to uncheck the Kiosk Wi-Fi controls :-

  • Users can turn Wi-Fi on/off.
  • Connect to and switch between Wi-Fi networks.
  • Add hidden Wi-Fi networks.
  • Users can delete Wi-Fi networks.
