XenMobile

Kiosk device policy

The Kiosk policy lets you restrict devices to Kiosk mode by limiting the apps that can run. XenMobile does not control which part of the device locks in Kiosk mode. The device manages the Kiosk mode settings after you deploy the policy.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.

To add a Kiosk device policy

All apps that you specify for Kiosk mode must already be installed on the user devices.

Some options apply only to the Samsung Mobile Device Management (MDM) API 4.0 and later.

Android Enterprise settings

You can allow apps and set lock task mode for dedicated Android Enterprise devices, which are also known as corporate owned single use (COSU) devices. By default, Secure Hub and Google Play services are on the allow list.

To allow an app, click Add. You can allow multiple apps. For more information, see Android Enterprise.

Note:

The XenMobile Server console includes the terms “blacklist” and “whitelist”. We are changing those terms in an upcoming release to “block list” and “allow list”.

  • Apps to whitelist: Enter the package name of the app you want to whitelist or select the app from the list.
    • Click Add new to enter the package name of the app approved to show in the list.
    • Select the existing app from the list. The list shows apps that are uploaded in XenMobile Server. By default, Secure Hub and Google Play services are whitelisted. Kiosk policy whitelisted apps
  • Lock task mode: Choose Allow to set the app to be pinned to the device screen when the user starts the app. Choose Deny to set the app not to be pinned. By default, Secure Hub and Google Play services are allowed. The default is Allow.

When an app is in lock task mode, the app is pinned to the device screen when the user opens it. No Home button appears and the Back button is disabled. The user exits the app using an action programmed into the app, such as signing out.
