Not sure if at all possible, but could be useful if the kiosk was showing a site that had administrative features where you may not want to let staff access the Android ecosystem at all, but where the 'normal' operation mode should still not allow the end user to long press the power button (if that makes sense)
I cannot find this in the docs, but is it possible to just hide the 'back' button rather than hide both the 'back' and 'settings' button - possibly may be good to be able to just tick what buttons to show (ie. home, back, forward, settings, scanner, etc)
Just trying out the screensaver functionality - I only want to use one image, yet this slides across after X seconds (X being slide delay), the app should really decide if there is only one screensaver image it shouldn't slide at all and stay static
We have an additional security program to prevent them from getting into anything else, but this isn't a high-security environment.
I install on a android Galaxy Tab A my own app
and i will that only this app start. I try it whis this url: file:///storage/emulated/0/"app name"
but only a white monitor...
what is the right url or gives an other mode?
You cannot use your own app, just a webpage or website. Kiosk Browser is a browser and not a locked down launcher.
Good morning, I would like to know how to shutdown the tablet when it is running the kiosk mode. I press the button off but nothing happens.
You can either go into settings and power off normally or turn off the setting from within settings > advanced > hide system dialogs. This will allow the normal power off dialog to appear.
Hello, we are still testing and have a last problem we encountered,
We display surveys with kioskbrowser, but every session is only valuable for 24 min, we have a script to call on a script to renew it each time, so when the survey is open, and nobody was completing it, it refreshes so when someoebody starts completing it, it works.
The problem now is, after sleep mode, this doesnt work, so we have a timeout error and the page stays on timeout error all day. Unless we clear cookies, but when we clear cookies all the time, we get error message csfr token is not identified.
Is there a possibility to clear cookies when the tablet comes out of sleep mode?
Or maybe you know another solution for this problem?
Thank you very much!

We have 5 KioskBrowsers running all on GalaxyTabs being remotely managed by the kioskbrowser remote solution.
We usually have Kiosk Browser running in the background when a user opens a local application using your API, Android.openApplication('myapp'). It is usual for Kiosk Browser to remain in the background for several hours until a user might bring it back to front using the home button.
This behaviour takes place in all Tabs, consistenly.
We haven't had the time to do a thorough debugging (that is why we are not being more specific, except for the page reload issue), but from our webserver logs (KioskBrowser consumes a site hosted by us), we can see weird things happening with the sessions, as well.
Before we spend time trying to debug the situation, we first wanted to know if this is a known issue or expected behaviour.
Thank you in advanced,
