Kiosk

With POS devices and single-purpose devices finding an exponential level of usage in organizations, ensuring devices are locked to specific apps and/or settings becomes a cumbersome task for system administrators. With Kiosk for Chromebooks, this can be easily and efficiently solved as it lets you lock the devices to specific and/or settings as well as ensure the user cannot move away from the app or modify the settings.

Best Practices

  • It is recommended to associate only one Kiosk profile to the managed devices.
  • You can provsion only those app(s) which are already present in App Repository or Inventory alone, for Kiosk. If the App(s) is/are not present, first add the app(s) to the App Repository and distribute and install the app(s) in the devices. Click here to know more about adding and distributing apps
  • If Kiosk has been applied but the app(s) are/is not present in the device, you can distribute and install the app(s) on the device. On successful installation of the app(s), the Kiosk Profile automatically gets re-associated to the device. If you've configured multi-app Kiosk but some of the apps are not present in the device, then Kiosk will be configured for the apps present in the device.
